Coin Center, a non-profit research and advocacy centre, announced today the launch of its new website that offers educational resources and detailed information about the organisation.

The group focuses on the public policy issues facing cryptocurrency technologies such as bitcoin. It provides updates on advocacy efforts, publishes policy research and serves as a resource for education on digital currencies as well as a repository of policy research from various respected academics and experts.

has a mission to build a better understanding of blockchain technologies and to promote a regulatory climate that preserves maximum freedom of action for digital currency innovation. The organisation will aim to educate policymakers and the media as the trusted and credible source of information about the regulatory implications of digital currencies.

“The implications of digital currency regulation are complex, unprecedented and far reaching,” said executive director Jerry Brito. “Sound public policy in this space requires policymakers and the media to be informed by sound research."

Brito is the author of a number of scholarly articles and books and has published opinion pieces in publications including Wired, The Guardian and The Economist, among others. He is also a regular contributor to Reason and blogs at the Technology Liberation Front.

Also on the Board of Directors is Alex Morcos, who is an active angel investor and co-founder of Chain Code labs, a New York City-based research and development group that explores cryptocurrencies and other peer-to-peer decentralised systems.

Prominent academics on the team include Susan Athey, who received her PhD from Standford, and is now a Professor of Economics at Stanford Graduate School of Business, and Houman Shadab, a professor at New York Law School.

Coin Center joins other advocacy groups in the bitcoin space like the Chamber of Digital Commerce, whose mission is to promote the acceptance and use of digital currencies and digital assets among government and the larger public.
