Darcy Allen

I am an academic and writer working on frontier technologies.

I have published over 20 articles across economics, law and public policy in leading journals including Research Policy, Harvard Negotiation Law Review, Journal of Institutional Economics, and Australian Journal of Public Administration.

I am currently focused on blockchain-based Web3 networks as a Senior Research Fellow the RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub (Melbourne, Australia). I also advise various web3 projects on cryptoeconomic design and governance.

I have published 4 books on technology, innovation and economics including The New Technologies of Freedom (AIER, 2020) and Cryptodemocracy: How Blockchain Can Radically Expand Democratic Choice (Lexington, 2019).

My papers on SSRN have been downloaded over 21,000 times, and on Google Scholar I have 1,400+ citations and a H-Index of 18. My commentary and findings have appeared widely across the print and electronic media, including opeds in newspapers such as the Sydney Morning Herald, Herald Sun and The Australian. I have appeared as an expert witness 6 times before state and federal parliamentary inquiries in Australia.

My PhD in economics was passed outright at RMIT University in 2018 and won the RMIT Prize for Research Excellence (Higher Degree by Research – Enterprise).
