TILEC Club IO: Jens Prüfer

A Primer on the Economics of Blockchain Technologies
10:45-11:45, T 50A

What is the blockchain? What can blockchain technologies do today and to which extent are they special from a (law &) economics perspective? What are the major opportunities and threats arising from blockchain technologies? How to optimally govern them? In this short introductory talk, I will outline some basic consequences of blockchain technologies, trying to de-hype the currently hot phrase. The goal is to inspire a discussion among law & economics scholars, similar to the recent Club IO on artificial intelligence, by highlighting key governance problems that await further research.
