There was once a time when cryptocurrency and blockchain research was a tiny and mostly confused field. That’s no longer the case! Research is growing rapidly and finding mainstream scholarly acceptance.
The earliest research was published in 2012 and started to take off with the first Bitcoin bubble of 2013. Since then, the research landscape has expanded rapidly, with every discipline and nearly every topic represented. At the same time, the quality of research has risen significantly too.
This page is an attempt to detail the breadth and depth of cryptocurrency and blockchain research. It will be frequently updated as the field grows and the landscape changes. We invite contributions and feedback.
