The Cryptoeconomics Lab will be housed in the new Digital Futures building—set to open in Summer 2022. The lab will offer a physical space where researchers, students, and companies will collectively study the impact of blockchain technology and digital assets on the future economy.

The lab will host computing hardware and networking equipment, which will validate payments, upload data for smart contract execution, and securely store digital assets. Researchers will analyze trends in decentralized currency exchanges, parametric insurance, prediction markets, and other business applications. Providing a platform for blockchain technology research, the lab will also serve as a transdisciplinary hub for research across diverse academic fields, including business, law, engineering, and art.
