Monnaies cryptographiques et complexité

Abstract

Le « minage » du Bitcoin apparaît au premier abord absurde : une colossale quantité de moyens (puces spécialisées, installations, électricité) est dépensée pour décider qui gagnera chaque 10 minutes les quelques Bitcoins créés par le protocole de Satoshi Nakamoto, et non pas pour participer à la gestion de la blockchain et à la surveillance des transactions qui ont un coût négligeable comparé à la course pour le calcul du « hash ». Pourtant une analyse plus fine montre que ces calculs apparemment absurdes se retrouvent « contenus » dans la blockchain et contribuent à la rendre infalsifiable, ce qui est essentiel pour la robustesse du protocole général. En cas de « fork » c’est d’ailleurs ce contenu en calcul qui permet de résoudre l’état incohérent du réseau dû à la présence de plusieurs blockchains valides concurrentes. Nous étudierons cette étrange situation mal théorisée aujourd’hui, nous parlerons de la notion mathématique de « contenu en calcul » (la « profondeur logique de Bennett » liée mais différente de la « complexité de Kolmogorov ») qui aide à penser proprement le problème des algorithmes de consensus, dont on ne sait pas aujourd’hui s’ils peuvent réellement éviter ce coût du minage d’une blockchain publique et ouverte comme celle du Bitcoin.

The PARIS CRYPTOFINANCE SEMINAR is a monthly meeting point for Cryptofinance Research taking advantage of the Paris diversity and critical mass of researchers in Mathematics, Cryptography, Computer science, Economics, Banking and Finance in general.  It is sponsored by research institutions CNRS, Labex Réfi, Labex MME-DII, Institut Henri Poincaré, and  academic institutions, Université Paris 1, Paris 7 and Pôle De Vinci.

Conférence : Online Alternative Finance: Building a Bridge between Research and Practitioners
Mai 22 Journée entière

 

Online Alternative Finance: Building a Bridge between Research and  Practitioners

The workshop aims to bring together scholars, industry leaders and regulators to have an open-minded discussion about our current state of knowledge about alternative finance. Researchers are increasingly using new forms of granular data to do an exciting research about alternative credit and equity markets, but many questions remain. Why are online finance providers emerging in the market? Will they make the financial system more democratic, responsible and fair? Will they lower the cost of financial intermediation? Or are they subject to the same agency problems as traditional intermediaries? What policies should the government adopt towards alternative finance sector? The workshop will provide a forum to discuss what data and research tools are needed to answer these questions.
