Invitation to join Long Finance webinar 'Modelling the Economics of Cryptocurrencies' - Tuesday 4 April, 13:00 BST

Chiara von Gunten Wednesday, 29 March 2017 11:44

How to model the economics of cryptocurrencies? What are the key questions to be answered? How can modelling provide insights? What are key variables to be considered? How to define plausible 'real-world' scenarios? Which models might be more relevant in the context of cryptocurrencies?

Long Finance's webinar 'Modelling the Economics of Cryptocurrencies' seeks to discuss some of the answers to these questions by exploring the economic modelling of cryptocurrencies, taking DasCoin - a hybrid cryptocurrency which combines centralised and decentralised features of cryptocurrencies - as an illustration.

After a short introduction by Professor Michael Mainelli (Z/Yen Group) on forms and functions of money and providing an overview of cryptocurrencies and their key features, Matthew Leitch (Z/Yen Group) will share insights on modelling the economics of cryptocurrencies taking DasCoin as an illustration. The presentations will be followed by a discussion, started by Dr Dionysios Demetis (University of Hull) which we will then open to the audience.

This webinar will take place on Tuesday 4 April, 13:00 to 14:00 BST. The event is free to attend but registration is required. Please register using this link.
