Blockchain and Crypto Economics

Blockchain and Crypto Economics


This course aims to give students a fundamental overview of a set of Blockchains and Crypto Economic concepts and incentives. Much is spoken about the trading markets around cryptocurrencies and other tokenized assets. However, little is discussed about different economic and social aspects that enable the functioning of blockchain- based systems. Thus, this course overviews the incentive schemes embedded at different levels that ultimately determine the long-term functioning of these systems and digs into real-world use-cases of this technology, critically analyzing the suitability of their implementation within each context.
