Daniel Aronoff

Former Research Scientist
  • Digital Currency Initiative (DCI)

 Daniel has published two peer reviewed books on the economic foundations of the 2008 global financial crisis. His research on digital currencies is focused on two areas. One area is game theoretic analysis of the consensus protocols that underlie cryptocurrencies and the design of new protocols to improve security.  The other area is the design of smart contracts to improve the performance of financial markets in environments where money and securities are appended to distributed ledgers. Daniel received his BSc in Philosophy and Economics  with first class honors from the London School of Economics and his PhD in Economics from MIT.
