The Secret Lives of Cryptos: Time Travel, Regulation, Whales and Refugees


Cryptocurrency networks are complex creatures and as a new technology paradigm, we are still at the beginning of our journey to understand them.

This talk and interactive Q&A session will bring together several related strands of ongoing research with the aim of venturing deeper into their inner workings. We'll talk about forks, shadow power structures, the properties of cryptographic assets which bring lawmakers to the yard and how Bitcoin might just save the world.
