About this Research Topic
Whilst the world is now inundated with burgeoning blockchain products, tokens, solutions, projects and processes, there is an increasing consensus that its true value is not in a single intervention but in providing a complete ecosphere which operates with radically different rule sets to existing legacy systems it may replace. These tend to require intricate and complex interdependencies of related overarching blockchain innovations in DLT, DAO, Smart Contracts, AI, Provenance, Exchanges, etc which together form new instruments better able to cope with the disruptive and chaotic world we live in. These blockchain ecospheres are only now starting to emerge, requiring deep multidisciplinary research which only the academic community has the patience and depth to fathom.
This research topic will welcome multi- and cross-disciplinary submissions, which examine and address the intersections and synergies between the different areas that together make up the Blockchain EcoSphere.
Articles published within this Research Topic in 2019 are eligible for the $10,000 “Yun Family Frontiers in Blockchain Prize".
