Last year, we celebrated 10 years of Bitcoin, blockchain, and cryptocurrency.
This year, we focus on the state of the art of the emerging protocol stack--the foundations on which we will build the future of Bitcoin and blockchain.
Current internet infrastructure communicates seamlessly and allows both devs and users to operate without regard the intricacies of how everything works. We believe Bitcoin should strive to achieve something similar.
With this goal in mind, the 2020 MIT Bitcoin Expo is going to be one of the most interesting yet!
At this year’s expo there will be three events happening simultaneously, co-located at MIT:
1. MIT Bitcoin Expo
The namesake conference, which will focus on the growing technology stack we believe is central to the emerging Bitcoin and blockchain ecosystem.
2. MIT Bitcoin Hackathon
This year’s hackathon focuses on building out the components of a blockchain stack so we can expand the technology’s usefulness and increase adoption. This 24-hour hackathon will bring together students for a weekend of coding, learning, experimenting, and collaborating. Separate registration required at link above.
3. Inaugural Peer Reviewed Cryptoeconomic Systems Conference
The Cryptoeconomic Systems journal and conference series aims to be a reputable peer reviewed venue for impactful original research and reviews, analyses & systematizations of existing knowledge with a focus on cryptocurrency & blockchain technology. The CES '20 conference program brings together the technical fields of cryptography, protocol engineering and distributed systems research with insights from the domains of economics, law, complex systems and philosophy to help crystallize a mature research commons. The Cryptoeconomic Systems journal is to be published by The MIT Press using a diamond open access policy with first issue available later this year. PDFs of papers accepted by CES '20 will be made available alongside the conference program shortly.
