Research Study Needs Cryptocurrency Users

As I have frequently commented in this blog, cryptocurrency communities are extremely interesting from a number of points of view.  To date, there is little academic research on the topic, and even the basics are not known.

A group here at Illinois are making an imporant start, with an online survey, announced this week in Coindesk:

The University of Illinois has launched a cryptocurrency research project that aims to examine peoples views on cryptocurrencies and their experiences and involvement with the crypto community.”

The survey can be found at

If you are doing anything with Bitcoin or any related technology, please consider taking the time to respond to the survey.  This will help us learn how cryptocurrency communities really work.


(Note:  I have no financial interest in this project.  I have encouraged and helped prepare the survey, and probably will assist in analysis of the data.)
