Curious: The Money That's Never In Your Pocket

Aug 10, 2018

The concept of money you never touch is a little easier to understand in the age of debit cards. 

But Bitcoin?  Virtual wallets?  Cryptocurrencies?  It takes a little more work to wrap our minds around recent developments in concepts of money, especially the blockchain technology that makes cryptocurrencies possible. 

Fortunately, Stephen McKeon is well-versed on the subject matter.  He is an assistant professor in the Department of Finance at the University of Oregon. 

Our joint venture with UO, "Curious: Research Meets Radio," resumes with a perusal of virtual currencies with Dr. McKeon.
