About Elaine Runting Shi's Work

My research focuses on building new theoretical foundations and practical protocols for blockchains and cryptocurrencies. My work focuses on making blockchains more scalable, easier and safer to program, and privacy-friendly. Earlier I co-authored the first peer-reviewed publication on Bitcoin and the first peer-reviewed publication on decentralized smart contracts. I was also the first to teach smart contract programming.
