The Princeton DeCenter examines the most important applications of blockchain, drives interdisciplinary research and education across applications and foundational blockchain technologies, and promotes the development and understanding of the policy, governance, and societal implications of this fast-growing field.
The DeCenter spring conference took a deep dive into use cases for blockchain technologies and their societal and ethical implications. Visit the conference site to watch video from the day.
Current and recent courses across Princeton that address societal and technical issues related to blockchain technologies.
The Princeton DeCenter brings a balanced and highly interdisciplinary approach to advancing blockchain technologies and analyzing their impacts. Our faculty and students span computer science, electrical and computer engineering, public policy, economics, politics, and ethics.
Among numerous initiatives, the DeCenter is hiring a faculty member, hosting events, and building our mailing list.
