Call for Papers

3rd National Online Conference on Evolution of Cryptocurrency & Bitcoins | 21st-22nd April 2022 | Reva University

Concept Note


In VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity) world where digital control, manipulation, and ambiguity is considered a norm. Many believe that cryptocurrency and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) will give us financial freedom. But this needs enquiry. Both these ideas emerged out of libertarian concept to basically bypass state apparatuses and to establish direct contact between the concerned parties. There is a paradigm shift in the entire phenomenon of digital transaction. In this scenario of manipulation and complexity we should exercise our intellectual faculties to create an environment of awareness, and at the same time not dismissing them as the latest speculative madness by the capitalist society. Cryptocurrency is a form of digital currency based on blockchain technology, widely considered secure, decentralized, and provides anonymity to its users, low transaction cost, instantaneous transfer and non-trackability. The key issue surrounding cryptocurrency is the inability to define its legal status. In light of cryptocurrency being prone to money laundering/counter terrorist financing, and unregulated illegal activities on the cyberspace i.e., the dark web and hence no country has recognized cryptocurrency as fiat money. The paradox here is that they do not work to produce new use-values, but to create new space for exchange-value. Recently, the government has announced to introduce Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill, 2021, to create a sovereign digital currency and simultaneously ban all private cryptocurrencies. But this bill is debatable as blanket ban is not possible as cryptocurrency is decentralized, and private ban of cryptocurrencies is most likely to result in an exodus of both talent and business from India. This too will deprive India, its entrepreneurs, and citizens a transformative technology.
