New funding ecosystems for science

Hat tip Tyler Cowen, the link is here. A couple of thoughts on this:

  • I’m not sure NSF is aware of the crypto-side of this new ecosystem
  • I’m pretty sure that university sponsored program offices aren’t either

So it may be quite challenging for established academic scientists to play in these sandboxes because of reporting/compliance requirements of the legacy funding systems. How do you make a list of your current and pending funding in bitcoin?
