|Title||Lykke Research Hub grants|
|Description||In December 2018, Lykke Research Hub ran an applied research projects competition. The research areas included but were not limited to digital markets microstructure, crypto trading, market abuse, and governance in decentralized systems.|
The competition was dedicated to Lykke Research Hub mentor, professor of Simon Fraser University (Canada) Ramo Gencay who tragically passed away last December.
We received 12 submissions which were then voted on by the community and an expert panel that included:
Dean Fantazzini (Moscow State University)
Fabrizio Lillo (University of Bologna)
Katya Malinova (McMaster University)
Rosario Mantegna (University of Palermo)
The grants were awarded to the following research proposals:
A Framework for Designing Better Stablecoins by Ariah Klages-Mundt (1st prize, $5000);
Insights into Crypto Community Governance: A Case Study of the DASHMasternode Proposal System by Omni Analytics Group (2nd prize, $2500);
Spoofing in the Cryptocurrency Markets by Shenje Hshieh (2nd prize, $2500);
Market Making and Toxic Arbitrage in Blockchain Markets by Stefan Voigt (2nd prize, $2500).
Stefan Voigt and Christoph Scheuch were invited to present their research atPerm Winter School on Digital Markets.
The grant amount is split into two parts: 50% has already been paid and 50% will be paid upon completion of the project outlined in the research proposal. All the winners will be asked to present their research work at open webinars.
Lykke Research Hub Council
We would like to announce the formation of Lykke Research Hub Council that consists of our mentors — distinguished scholars and financial markets professionals. They will work closely with our research team to set the strategic direction of the initiative, assess research grants proposals and projects, facilitate collaboration with academia and businesses.
