Maths and Money: From Gold to Bitcoin

Gresham Lecture

Maths and Money: From Gold to Bitcoin

Wednesday 21 October 2020 - 16.00

Lecturers will deliver their lectures to camera in Barnard’s Inn Hall. Lectures will be live-streamed at the time of filming, using a system which allows for questions from the online audience, and lecturers will be able to address questions just after their talk. 

Links to lectures will be given here when available

Depending on government guidance on mass gatherings, Gresham may be able to phase in a limited in-person audience with social-distancing measures implemented. We'll keep you updated about that possibility.

  • Andrew Lewis-Pye (LSE): Cryptocurrencies: Protocols for Consensus
