What is the CCRG

The Cryptocurrency Research Group is the first formal cross-disciplinary research network focused on studying cryptocurrencies and other decentralized consensus technologies. CCRG affiliates span a wide range of disciplines including mathematics, cryptography, economics, and law. The goal of the CCRG is to understand decentralized consensus technology, its application and potential impact on the world, and to promulgate that understanding to the research community and to the public.

Why is the CCRG being formed

Decentralized consensus technologies provide, for the first time, a way for one Internet user to transfer a unique piece of digital property to another Internet user, such that the transfer is guaranteed to be safe, secure, public, and irrefutable. If adopted, these technologies could fundamentally transform how the world operates, introducing a range of efficiencies to commerce, finance, law, and insurance, and enabling the creation of the next generation of the World Wide Web.


The CCRG is in the early stages of its bootstrap process. Email us if you are a researcher and you want to be involved with this exciting effort. Look for details on our inaugural conference soon.
