2023 Theme

The idea of decentralization is at the heart of blockchain technology. It challenges the legacy and centralized models that dominate various sectors including banking, finance, healthcare, insurance, legal services, and others. Yet, like other types of digital innovation, we can anticipate that the adoption and diffusion of blockchain technology won’t be an outright revolution. We can rather expect business transformation at the intersection of established players/practices and novel applications/mindsets. We are likely to witness a period of ferment during which many established business practices will undergo transformation.

This conference offers a venue for presenting and discussing novel research on the business of blockchain technology. We encourage extended abstracts of conceptual and empirical work and panel proposals.
