Blockchain Society studies the societal impact of blockchain technologies from a law and policy perspective.
They are thinking about questions such as:
- How are blockchain applications governed? What internal factors contribute to the success of a blockchain application?
- How do different societal domains deal with blockchain technologies and their potential disruptive effect?
- What are the most important regulatory issues around blockchain applications, and what are our policy alternatives?
With their methods they try to follow an interdisciplinary approach that integrates legal, social, political, economic, and technological discourses to describe a complex techno-social phenomenon.
