Community & Business Groups

Cryptoledgers Community Group

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.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.
