The Cryptoledgers Community Group has been launched:
This group aims at creating an international and interdisciplinary network of researchers – academic and non-academic – interested in exploring the economic, legal, technical and societal challenges raised and faced by cryptoledger-based applications, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum.
The purpose of this group is to enable peer support and collaboration for researchers across institutions and disciplines to achieve a better understanding of the opportunities and risks posed by cryptocurrencies and other cryptoledger-based applications.
This group includes those doing theoretical analysis, investigating tools and applications that might hinder or support the adoption of alternative cryptocurrencies, or collaborating on the development of new tools to further promote their deployment worldwide.
This group will not publish specifications.
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2014-07-03 by Primavera De Filippi. The following people supported its creation: Primavera De Filippi, Michael Brunnbauer, trisha roche, Danny Jeong, Anastasios Koutoumanos. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.
We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.
