Track Description

In recent years we have been witness to a fascinating array of disruptive technologies. Among these, Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) such as blockchain have received much attention, primarily driven by their exposure as Bitcoin’s enabling technology. While blockchain drives innovations in different sectors, it certainly propels new business models within Fintech, for making financial services more accessible, efficient, and affordable.

Distributed Ledger Technologies have the potential to transform the financial sector, as well as businesses across other industry sectors. They have already resulted in fundamental changes to businesses in areas such as economic exchange systems, costs of networking and verification, transaction costs, trust, Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and governance. Their full impact, however, is yet to be unleashed. Similarly, Fintech has received attention in various contexts: as analytics in financial services, anti-money laundering assisted by innovative IT, robo-advisory, as well as digital payments, for example. Yet, further research is needed to contribute to the nascent literature on these topics.

This track calls for financial and non-financial DLT & blockchain as well as Fintech research that fosters a better grasp of these topics through rigorous research.

We invite innovative and relevant empirical (qualitative and quantitative) studies as well as design-oriented research and conceptual/theoretical papers.
