Cryptocurrencies – Digital Transactions – Public Transformations: Interdisciplinary Perspectives
The increasing use of encrypted, decentralized digital currencies – also known as “cryptocurrencies” – influences state systems and societies. As current legislation is not prepared for this development, tensions are quite likely to arise.
The workshop “Cryptocurrencies – Digital Transactions – Transformations of the State: interdisciplinary perspectives” was hosted at University of Graz on 10 March 2017 by Professor Tina Ehrke-Rabel (University of Graz), Professor Iris Eisenberger M.Sc. (LSE) (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna) and Professor Richard Sturn (University of Graz) as part of the research project ‘KryptoStaat’.
