The section Blockchain Economics explores the transition of socio-economic systems towards open models built on distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) and Blockchain, and it addresses a plethora of fundamental questions on Blockchain and Economics. Typical studies in this realm will include (but are not limited to):
· Contract, market design and information mechanisms of distributed marketplaces
· Economics (including supply policy) of blockchains employing tokens or account balances that represent assets (physical or otherwise) or are exchangeable for goods, services or currency.
· Token engineering
· Analysis of incentives (designed or hidden) in blockchain-based platforms
· Decision-making processes in decentralized environments
· Analysis of collective-decision making
· Token circulation and distribution
· Economic aspects of design and functioning of centrally issued digital currencies
· Economic aspects of Initial Coin Offerings and Security Token Offerings
· Modelling and forecasting of blockchain economics
· Economic metrics of Blockchain
· Political aspects of Blockchain Economics
· Economic aspects of decentralized autonomous organizations
· Token economics / tokenomics
· Strategic behavior in Blockchain
· Economic aspects of distributed consensus systems
· Blockchain in Economics and the economics of Blockchain
· Interdisciplinary approaches in Blockchain research
Papers can be either theoretical or empirical: in both cases, they must contain original content that advances the state of the art in the area of Blockchain Economics. Methods include (but are not limited to): game theory, social choice theory, contract theory, macro-economic analysis, data-driven and econometric approaches, and agent-based modelling. We also welcome survey papers that compare existing approaches, or systematize the knowledge about a given topic. Contributions that might influence commercial speculation, for example by predicting the future value of a particular asset, are unlikely to be accepted.
