Track Description

Blockchain, distributed ledger technology (DLT), and Fintech are disruptive technologies that drive the digital transformation of the financial industry. Initially applied in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, blockchain provides a technology solution for building trustless systems in a secure, transparent, and decentralized manner. In recent years, blockchain has become increasingly adopted in various industry sectors such as supply chain and logistics, global trade, internet of things, healthcare, energy and so on. This track calls for innovative research on topics related to blockchain, DLT, and Fintech. We invite both theoretical and empirical studies that apply any perspective (behavioral, computational, design science, economics, organizational).

Track Chairs:
Hailiang Chen, University of Hong Kong
Jungpil Hahn, National University of Singapore
