bitcoin and beyond cryptocurrencies blockchains and global governance ripe series in global political economy

Blockchains are being mobilized to support and extend an array of governance activities. The novelty and breadth of growing blockchain-based activities have fuelled both utopian promises and dystopian fears regarding applications of the emergent technology to Bitcoin and beyond. These and other controversies surrounding cryptocurrencies have induced varying governance responses by central banks, government ministries, international organizations, and industry regulators worldwide. He is the author of Professional Authority After the Global Financial Crisis, published in 2017 by Palgrave MacMillan. Algorithms, pre-coded series of step-by-step instructions, are also mobilised in solving complex mathematical equations and arriving at a consensus on the validity of transactions within networks of users. This volume addresses these questions by integrating critical and constructivist perspectives with approaches from a range of disciplines. Academics have been slow to grasp the significance of the cryptocurrency revolution: this book is among the first to provide a thorough, comprehensive and yet accessible examination of the challenges posed by the world of Cryptocurrencies.
