Book Announcement: Blockchain Governance

Our new book, Blockchain Governance (The MIT Press), is now available for pre-order! 

Blockchain Governance looks at the political and legal challenges and opportunities that come with the emergence of blockchain technology. It discusses the hype and hope of new forms of digital governance, like NFTs, DAOs, and network states. Through an expansive tour of these new forms of governance, the book asks questions that are central to the way we govern and regulate blockchain systems like Ethereum, Tezos, and countless others. Can digital cash truly be “trustless”? What does it mean that blockchain systems offer their own version of the rule of law—the “rule of code”? How are decisions made when a blockchain system faces an emergency, and who gets to make those decisions?

The book is based on years of academic research and has been written with a broad public audience in mind, with plenty of stories and examples to bring home the abiding relevance of our analysis. So if you’re not an expert in blockchain technologies but would be interested to know how this technology continues to transform the world we live in, Blockchain Governance is the book for you.

The book is US$17.95 on the MIT website, but some retailers price it as low as 12 EUR (Feltrinelli). It will be shipped to you on 20 August 2024. You can pre-order the book now through online book retailers, including:
