When did you first hear about Bitcoin?

June 2011

What about Bitcoin do you find appealing?

The protocol is very elegant and many things fit together "just right"

What, in your opinion, are the main challenges facing Bitcoin going forward?

Bitcoin is already facing scalability issues, issues with fast transaction approval, and in my opinion will face problems with the incentives built in to the protocol

Are you involved in any specific Bitcoin-related initiatives?

I am currently engaged in academic research related to Bitcoin. I'm currently working on microeconomic incentive issues related to the protocol and I am interested in macro-economic questions as well.


I'm a researcher (and lecturer) at the School of Engineering and Computer Science in the Hebrew University. I research issues on the border of computer science and economics / social sciences.
