    Tokenomics 2021 is currently accepting submissions.  Please consider submitting and please forward this to any people or lists you think would be interested. 


    Tokenomics is an international forum for theory, design, analysis, implementation and applications of blockchains and smart contracts. The goal of the conference is to bring together economists, computer science researchers and practitioners working on blockchains in a unique program featuring outstanding invited talks and academic presentations. This year's conference is hosted by New York University (NYU), and will be held remotely on Zoom.
