Blockchain Research Lab

According to a 2019 Deloitte survey, more than half of corporate executives see blockchain technology as a critical priority for their organizations. While blockchain has its origins in digital currencies like bitcoin, the technology has matured to become a tool in supply chains, finance and insurance markets, healthcare, and many other industries. Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that achieves consensus about the state of the world.

 

The Kautz-Uible Economics Institute created a blockchain research lab so that students can learn more about this emerging technology. Students have worked with companies like Cincinnati Bell and Kingsgate Logistics to develop proof of concept blockchain solutions. Students are also exploring how digital currencies can be implemented in censorship-resistant governments where Internet access is restricted.

 

If you want to explore how economics students can help your company with blockchain solutions, please reach out to Michael Jones at m.jones@uc.edu.
