Finance 3.0


Over the past decade, a new global economy has emerged around cryptocurrencies, digital payments, and decentralized finance and autonomous organizations. Governments, regulators, investors, and legacy industries have taken notice, some responding with fear or skepticism, others with enthusiasm. Since no single perspective can capture such a wide-ranging global development, there is an urgent need for more balanced, well-informed debate and analysis to make this highly consequential development understandable and accessible to the general public.
