With the elaborate and protracted fall-out of the war in Ukraine, much ink has been spilled over the potentiality for the consequences of financial decoupling between global economic superpowers. With the subsequent sanctions imposed upon Russia adding onto existing economic blockades and punitive measures implemented against states such as DPRK and Iran, questions have arisen over cryptocurrency’s ability to provide a circumventing alternative unit and means of transaction. This session seeks to delve into not only the complex entanglement of the financial and geopolitical dynamics in the aftermath of the rise of cryptocurrency, but also into charting and mapping out the future trajectory of cryptocurrency in light of of the competing and intertwined political considerations.
