Join us to hear Dr Garrick Hileman from the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance present for the first time key findings from the 2017 University of Cambridge Global Cryptocurrency Benchmarking Study.

The purpose of the study was to gather and analyse ‘off-chain’ cryptocurrency data, such as how many cryptocurrency wallets can be defined as ‘active’, where are cryptocurrency mining facilities concentrated, and aggregated non-public data. Approximately 150 cryptocurrency organisations and individuals contributed data to what is the first comprehensive empirical study of global cryptocurrency activity. Attendees will receive a first view of this new data and analysis as well as an advance copy of the 100+page study.
