Cryptocurrency Research on SSRN

Decentralized digital assets, currencies, and tokens have garnered attention from academics and practitioners in nearly every scholarly discipline. Cryptocurrencies, and related areas of interest, have wide-ranging business, economic, environmental, legal, political, and regulatory implications. The Cryptocurrency Special Topic Hub presents interdisciplinary scholarship covering all aspects of cryptocurrencies, from the technical platforms, solutions, and tools used, to user identity, authentication, and the encryption empowering it, to the regulatory policies it influences.

It is important to note that many of these papers have not been edited or benefited from the pivotal role of peer-review, which validates and improves the quality of final published journal articles.

SSRN, Elsevier’s world-leading platform devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of early-stage research, is committed to advancing societal progress through quality knowledge and education. Research on SSRN is free to download and upload.
