Thanks so much to those attending and participating in the inaugural Cryptoeconomic Systems event. We truly appreciate you taking the time and in many cases traveling great distances to be with us. Our ~225 attendees hailed from every corner of the globe, making it an intercontinental as well as interdisciplinary gathering.

We welcome you to Cambridge this fall for a two-day gathering at MIT on October 5th and 6th focused on collaboratively building an interdisciplinary field of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology research. By gathering academics, practitioners and industry leaders from a variety of areas we aim to foster a fruitful exchange of ideas in preparation for the launch of a new Open Access journal published by The MIT Press, "Cryptoeconomic Systems".
The goal of these highly collaborative journal and conference activities is to bring together the technical areas of cryptography, protocol engineering and distributed systems research with insights from the domains of economics, law, complex systems and philosophy to crystallize a mature communal scholarly ecosystem. In addition, legacy publishing has serious issues which limit the impact and legitimacy of academic contributions in such a fast-moving area of study. We welcome discussion of strategies to address matters such as publication access and researchers’ rights, lack of incentives & transparency in peer review, gaming of metrics such as journal impact factors and historical differences in publishing culture between subject areas.
We look forward to seeing you in Cambridge soon!
