Economics and Finance Call for Papers

The “Economic and Financial Track” of the 2020 Crypto Valley Conference will bring together scholars, regulators and practitioners interested in exploring opportunities and risks of emerging blockchain-based systems and distributed Ledger technologies.

The aim is to merge the gap between academics, technologists, policy makers and regulators engaged in the new field of distributed and peer-to-peer systems, by providing a unique cross-sectoral perspective which allows to exhaustively address questions of practical importance from an economic, financial and business perspective.

Submissions should focus on (but are not limited to) the following topics:

Monetary aspects of P2P systems
Stable coins and digital fiat
Incentive mechanisms in emerging blockchain networks
Individual and group decision-making
Principles of the decentralised crypto-economy
Implications of blockchain for income inequality
DLTs, transaction costs and externalities

Accepted papers will be considered for a publication into Frontiers in Blockchain journal – Financial Blockchain
The editorial guidelines must thus follow the standard requested by the journal (please refer to the following link: Guidelines)
