Event description

Description

Ten years after its inception, Bitcoin, the first practical cryptographic virtual currency scheme, is widely known and adopted by relevant user groups. It attracts considerable public attention as well as scrutiny by researchers and governments. At the same time, in the slipstream of Bitcoin, we can observe the rise of a number of alternative cryptocurrencies with distinctive features, such as improved user privacy in Monero or Zcash. Other currencies, such as Ether, serve as means of payment in emerging blockchain application platforms, which aim at generalizing the ideas behind Bitcoin to more universal uses than electronic payments alone.

The goal of this symposium is to present the latest scientific and technical results in the field of cryptocurrency research and to highlight the new challenges businesses, users, and regulators will face in the light of Post-Bitcoin Cryptocurrencies.

We cordially invite all interested people from businesses, regulators, academia, and the general public to join this symposium!
