Building a Cryptocurrency
Think-Tank

Aiming to be the world's leading think-tank for blockchain research and technology, CRYSTAL centre is committed to blockchain research and long-term growth of blockchain community, with its research focus on the security of blockchains.

 

A Community for Blockchain Research and Technology

What will we do?

CRYSTAL centre will bridge the gap between the folklore and market concerns, and rigorous computational thinking. It will provide scientific clarity to technical ideas in regard to blockchains and cryptocurrencies, make debates in the community more scientifically-grounded, and will draw attention to unforeseen scientific challenges and engage with the community.

The university centre will have an emphasis on advancing:

  • Research on scalability, security and provable safety for blockchain protocols;

  • Community of technical experts who can conceive and enable faster adoption.

OUR GOALS

  • To create the world’s leading think-tank for blockchain research and technology. To provide scientific clarity to technical ideas in blockchains and cryptocurrencies.

  • We hope to make debates in the community more scientifically-grounded and to improve interaction between those armed with intuition and those with scientific rigor.

  • We will draw attention to (unforeseen) scientific challenges, both near-term and long-term, through a new model of engagement with the community.
