NEW: « Collusion by Blockchain and Smart Contracts »

Dear readers,

I am very pleased to finally introduce my second article on the subject of blockchain and antitrust/competition law:

Collusion by Blockchain and Smart Contracts”.
(click here to download it)

I believe that this is the first article to introduce a taxonomy of collusion on blockchain and to explore their functioning, their robustness, and their limits. It further highlights how companies may use smart contracts and sophisticated algorithms to collude in the blockchain environment, thus contributing to the literature solely focused on algorithms.

In short: blockchain is changing it all.
(for instance: the end of most leniency applications)
