The PNC center for Financial Services Innovation is supporting an effort to create a cryptocurrency testbed that can be used by researchers. To this end, the center is supporting creation of a CMU focused cryptocurrency - CMU Coin. The goal is to create a cryptocurrency that is secure, legal, focused on privacy rather than anonymity, has greener alternatives to the proof of work, and ensures continued decentralization as the coin matures. The effort would engage the CMU community both in identifying potential use-cases and in developing the underlying mechanisms and the code for the CMU coin. Please reach out to the center director if you would like to participate.
