RMIT BIH PartnershipRMIT to provide strong theoretical foundations for Tracer
One underlying force that galvanised the blockchain revolution was research. Decades of research in cryptography, economics, mathematics and sociology to help design a better system for communication, commerce and community.
Tracer DAO respects this historical commitment to research, and can announce the first globally recognised academic partner to actively participate in a DAO. RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub proposed a research collaboration on 25 March 2021, and was successfully approved by Tracer DAO on 30 March 2021.
This partnership goes beyond existing examples of projects working with published authors and academics to write whitepapers. RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub commits to ongoing participation in voting, researching, writing and publishing, to broaden the spectrum of what can be achieved by Tracer.
For the Tracer ecosystem, RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub will:
- Publish articles related to Tracer;

- Speak at events relating to Tracer;
- Host or co-host DeFi conferences and events;
- Promote job opportunities relevant to Tracer DAO; and
- Engage with the community on Tracer's communications channels.
