  • 摘要 Ever since the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, was invented in 2008, the number of cryptocurrencies has exploded. Many of them were invented with various improvements over previous ones, such as a less wasteful consensus mechanism, a stronger cryptographic technology, and a more flexible transaction protocol. These innovations, just like innovations in more traditional economic sectors, are costly for the corresponding innovators. We introduce a quality-ladder model of digital currencies, and address the question of whether, in a decentralized market of privately-issued currencies, innovators have adequate incentives to innovate for the benefit of the society.
