An alphabetic list of academics who are actively working on aspects of cryptocurrencies/assets/tokens, and/or blockchain technology. Last update: January 16, 2018. Requirements/Defintions:
Academic:Primarily associated with an academic institution (not a company). It is NOT required that you have a PhD to satisfy this. I'm trying to collect sources that are likely to produce un-biased, quality research.
Work in cryptos: At least 1 paper in the past 3 years on an aspect of cryptos. Blog posts do not count. I understand that publication lags are long, so viewable working papers are sufficient.
Active: A reasonably up-to-date website that contains the paper or functional link to the journal DOI. The website can be SSRN, ResearchGate, ORCID, public, departmental, personal, etc. Part of the reason for this page is to facilitate research transmission and reduce duplication. Hunting down various papers based on a year-old CV listing is not helpful. (+Bonus-points-with-no-functional-value if data is posted as well!).
If you satisfy these requirements but are not listed, please send me an email with your website, discipline, and twitter handle (if you have one) so that I can add you! I will add additional categories if needed, the ones listed are not meant to be exclusive.
