Virtual currencies such as Bitcoin have recently attracted significant media coverage. Some commentators highlight their innovative features and hail them as the future of money. Other commentators point to their uses in illegal activities and the volatility and speculative nature of their markets. In this workshop, we aim to bring together scholars from diverse backgrounds to discuss the potential research value of Bitcoin and other virtual currencies. The workshop will consist of two short introductory talks followed by discussion.
