EVENT:

Bitter to Better—How to Make Bitcoin a Better Currency
Conferences & Talks

Financial Cryptography

27 February 2012
Bonaire, Caribbean Netherlands

 

description

Bitcoin is a distributed digital currency which has attracted a substantial number of users. We perform an in-depth investigation to understand what made Bitcoin so successful, while decades of research on cryptographic e-cash has not lead to a large-scale deployment. We ask also how Bitcoin could become a good candidate for a long-lived stable currency. In doing so, we identify several issues and attacks of Bitcoin, and we propose novel techniques to address them.
