About MARBLE

Blockchain Technology has been considered as the most fundamental and revolutionising invention since the Internet. Because of its immutable nature and the associated security and privacy benefits, it has been widely attracted the attention of banks, governments, techno-corporations, as well as venture investors. Every year, thousands of Blockchain projects are launched, and various types of new cryptocurrencies are issued and circulated in the market.

There exists so many blockchain applications: from finance to healthcare, from education, media to logistics and more. However, due to theoretical limitations and technical barriers to the adoption of blockchain, in fact most of these applications are impractical for being used in real business context. The challenges and limitations, such as scalability, latency, privacy and security, need to be further studied and addressed in high quality research.

While most of the blockchain conferences and forums dedicated to business application, product development or ICO launch, the First International Conference on Mathematical Research for Blockchain Economy (MARBLE) focuses on the mathematics behind blockchain to bridge the gap between practice and theory. It aims to provide a high-profile, cutting-edge platform for mathematicians, computer scientists and economists to present latest advances and innovations in key theories of blockchain.
