The Wharton Blockchain and Digital Asset Project is a research initiative focused on the evolving blockchain phenomenon. BDAP functions as a thinktank and a connection point. It provides balanced, research-based perspectives on topics such as regulation of digital assets, governance of blockchain networks, emergence of decentralized finance (DeFi), and prospects for a new era of Web3. It also draws on world-class Wharton/Penn faculty, alumni, and students, as well as relationships with officials and industry experts from around the world, to bridge gaps among stakeholder communities.
