The Blockchain Library’s goals are twofold: to provide easy access to resources on cryptocurrency research for scholars, academics, analysts, and anyone with an interest in cryptocurrency publications; the second is to provide an archive and historical timeline on the development of the blockchain field and to document the journey of its growth through preservation and archival projects.
Consider making a gift to help further our goals.
What We do
The organizing and sharing of information related to cryptocurrency research have not kept pace with innovations and developments in the field. We will provide services to support research and analysis of blockchain technologies. We are organizing information on blockchain, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency platforms to make research accessible and preserve history.
Philosophy, Ethics, and Principles
Finally, we care about principles such as security, privacy, and open access to information. We want to share information to researchers in such a way there are no compromises with security or privacy. This is why we run the site in secure settings. We also believe that this open access philosophy can provide the mechanism to most widely transmit information to future innovators and creators.
