Blockchain technology has brought about one of the most exciting and profound technological shifts of our time. It is redefining the way we do commerce, how we interact with government, and how we verify authenticity and provenance of everything from financial assets to food and precious materials.
Swansea Blockchain Lab is a dedicated research group based at Swansea University’s Computational Foundry, and supported by CHERISH Digital Economy Research Centre. Our Lab's core mission is to:
- understand the fundamental scientific underpinnings of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies;
- engage with industry and end users to promote a culture of shared knowledge and co-creation of blockchain research and development;
- work collaboratively with our partners to develop transformative innovations that address societal and economic challenges across government, industry and third sector.
Our Lab is represented by a team of academics and business development personnel with combinative expertise across computational science and mathematics. Core expertise includes:
- Mathematical Logic
- Logic in Computer Science
- Computational Complexity Theory
- Smart Contracts
- Formal Methods
- Cyber Trust
- Proof Theory
- Type Theory
- Interactive Proof Theory
- Cryptocurrencies (Modelling and Verification)
We have a range of funding programmes that enable engagement between our researchers and partners, and that support the development of prototype blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. Please contact us for more information.
