As a subject of academic research, Bitcoin and blockchains more generally raise interesting questions across a variety of disciplines ranging from computer science to law and economics. BITCOIN is the longest-running peer-reviewed workshop bringing together interested scholars who study cryptographic currencies and their supporting ecosystems from technical and socio-economic perspectives.
