DasCoin: A Hybrid Digital Store of Value System

DasCoin: A Hybrid Digital Store of Value System


Monday, 21 November 2016

DasCoin is a new cryptocurrency which combines decentralised and centralised features of cryptocurrency approaches which will be officially launched in March 2017 in Hong Kong.

This seminar sought to understand the intellectual thinking behind DasCoin. Most notably, participants compared DasCoin and other currency systems out there, from Bitcoin (obviously) to Ethereum, zcash, and others, on dimensions including governance, distribution criteria, authentication, the nature of the blockchain (public vs private) and the ecosystem surrounding the cryptocurrency.  Along the way the seminar gathered insights and critiques from academics and other interested parties on what the benefits of such alternative approaches might be, notably in terms of security, stability and scalability.
