Cryptoeconomics 101: Beyond Tokens

Mar 14, 2019

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

What is cryptoeconomics, and how can it help us design effective tokens and blockchain systems? In this talk, Stephanie Hurder, PhD will discuss why a holistic approach to economic design -- including insights from fields as diverse as social choice theory, game theory, contract theory, and market design -- is essential for blockchain organizations. An effective token must be custom-designed with the economics of the entire platform in mind. Dr. Hurder will discuss how major tech companies such as Microsoft, Google, and eBay have leveraged these insights for over a decade to improve the performance of their marketplaces, and apply key takeaways towards areas of cryptoeconomics that are ripe for future innovation.
