Discuss Cryptocurrency Research with MIT's DCI [Breakfast]

  • MIT Media Lab 75 Amherst Street Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

About this Event

In addition to our research, the DCI is helping steward the burgeoning field of cryptocurrency/blockchain technology. Later this year, we're starting a peer-reviewed journal and hosting an academic conference. As part of that process, we're excited to host this event to build more bridges with the Boston cryptocurrency community. Come here to share your research with like-minded computer scientists, economists, lawyers, and game theorists! In addition to DCI research scientists (Neha Narula, Tadge Dryja, Madars Virza, Rob Ali), we'll have folks from universities like MIT, Harvard, Northeastern, etc. and a variety of "research-based" cryptocurrency companies. Please stop by!

We'll discuss:

  • Your research! (We'll set aside most of the time for folks to connect, share, and co-explore their research questions.)

  • How to build blockchain/cryptocurrency technology into an academic field.

  • The "hot topics" in cryptocurrency research.

  • How academics and businesses can collaborate on research.

Note: A light breakfast and coffee will be provided.
