The Berlin Crypto-Currencies Conference (CCConf) provides a platform for interdisciplinary discussion of these challenges, as well as the technological and economic potential of blockchain-based systems. We welcome researchers and practitioners working on topics such as:

CCConf is a purely academic conference. Our regular discussion event series bridging academia and practice is blockchainnights.de.

BRC provides quick and easy access to neatly preprocessed and ready-to-use crypto-currency data aggregated from multiple sources. At the moment it supplies 10 curated research datasets containing crypto-trading, text and risk data.

ABC is the interdisciplinary one-stop-shop research center for blockchain (and related) technologies to be applied in industrial applications. Partially funded under the COMET program, it subsidises technology transfers from research to industry, all from conceptualisation to working prototypes.

BBC started its activities in 2017, and was formally established as a Competence Center in 2019. Since then, it has organised a wide range of academic, educational, and industry-related activities. It thus became the largest and most active academic cluster in Switzerland, a World-wide blockchain hub.
