Thanks! I want to work with Abbey, Zargam and the guys from Vienna university to turn the current medium posts into a paper. This looks like a good place to target. Submission deadline for an abstract is tomorrow! Should be able to make that work

We submitted an abstract for the Future Sin paper and got accepted. Have till October to submit the full paper, so plenty of time.

Hahaha all the sin. Nice, looking forward to future collaboration! Can you share the abstract in a google doc perhaps? (If you make it editable, co-creators may add structural notes or reminders etc.)

Hey, sorry for the delay.
I think next steps are getting on a call and deciding on the general structure of the paper. Not actually sure what the final draft of the abstract we submitted was, I will try find it.

@michaelshea I just stumbled across this. We have a whitepaper on blockchain for good and have been struggling to find funding to complete the platform so we can launch it. Is there any way we could submit it still?
