Despite the wide spectrum of blockchain applications and their proven potential to disrupt fundamental societal processes and institutions, there is very little research on their non-technical, societal, economic, policy and legal implications. Without funded research we can only speculate on how blockchain applications may affect our everyday practices, institutions, and laws. To address this gap, the BLOCKCHAIN & SOCIETY project will focus on 3 questions:
- What internal factors contribute to the success of a blockchain application?
- How does society adopt blockchain?
- How to regulate blockchain?
