About MARBLE

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

Blockchain applications range from decentralised finance to healthcare, from education to media and logistics, from supply chains and energy economics to non-fungible tokens and many more. However, the theoretical limitations and technical challenges in the wider adoption of the blockchain technology, such as scalability, latency, privacy, and security need to be further studied and addressed in high quality research.

The International Conference on Mathematical Research for Blockchain Economy (MARBLE), now in its 3rd edition, 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.
