A Research Seminar presented by Prof Stephen Wingreen

Location: Room Q2.33 Lochlann Quinn Business School, Belfield

date/time: Monday April 25th from 15:30 to 17:00

UCD CITO’s coding value project hosted a World Café event in the Blackrock campus today for members of the Bitcoin and Blockchain communities. As part of this professional networking event, participants mapped out their beliefs and values about Bitcoin and the blockchain usingf a newly-developed q-sort instrument. The instrumentation, a q-sort, was developed for the purpose of operationalizing peoples' value system about Bitcoin and blockchain to answer the basic questions, "What do people value about Bitcoin?" and "What do people value about blockchain?" The primary contribution is an initial typology of peoples' value systems with respect to Bitcoin and the blockchain, based on the priorities they expressed in their q-sorts. A short thesis proposal on the topic of emerging technology, using Bitcoin will also be presented, with the intent that the initial results from the World Café may be integrated into the thesis project.

Steve Wingreen, from the Department of Accounting and Information Systems in the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, is currently visiting UCD Business.
