This week on CFTC Talks, we have on University of Chicago Prof. Will Cong for a two-part interview.  On part one, we discuss his (with several co-authors) recent papers on blockchain, cryptos and smart contracts: “Tokenomics:  Dynamic Adoption and Valuation” and “Blockchain Disruption and Smart Contracts.”  We discuss how blockchains and smart contracts may be used to collude.  In part two, we discuss his recent travels to 10 different global conferences on Blockchain/smart contracts/cryptos and what he learned each one.
