AIM & FOCUS AREAS
The new distributed data structures (e.g. blockchains) and digital assets (e.g. cryptocurrencies) will foster novel services, business models and applications in the next years. These technologies can provide an automated and secure transaction infrastructure for next generation of smart systems while the voluntary user participation to the mining of cryptocurrencies could permit the development of new distributed services that offers an alternative to the advertisement-based revenue system used by most of the “free services” that are currently available. The Tehran Institute for Advanced Studies’ summer school on Economics of Cryptocurrencies aims at gathering together researchers and practitioners to focus on the new challenges posed by the cryptocurrencies with emphasis on economic aspect of it.
The summer school is intended for graduate students, scholars and practitioners with basic knowledge of cryptocurrencies and economics.
