The emergence of distributed ledgers as a decentralized method for storing state and processing transactions has attracted immense interest in the last few years. The technology emerges from the Bitcoin protocol, and has applications in tracking all manner of assets and entities, in supply chains, online marketplaces, and other settings where there is transfer of value. This Interest Group meets to discuss new developments and applications of these ideas, and to support research into their scalability, mathematical properties, and implementation issues.
