No Hype, No Politics:

Supporting fact-based research into cryptocurrency, the digital economy and digital finance.

Who we are

We are the Independent Centre for the Digital Economy and Finance.

Our mission is to encourage and distribute independent, reliable and empirical research into cryptocurrencies, DeFi, Web3.0, the digital economy and finance.

We collate and curate high-quality research publications by independent experts and institutions to foster a clearer understanding of the opportunities and implications of blockchain-related financial innovation. We aim to draw together and digest the latest developments in law, regulation and policy from around the world, collected into one place for our readers to access as quickly and as simply as possible.


ICDEF powers BlockAnalysis – a newsletter to help readers understand how the different moving parts of this space fit together. Not minute-by-minute industry updates or policy developments – but the way they fit together and what that might mean for everyone who takes part.
