About DAREC

Mission and Goals

The Digital Asset Research & Engineering Collaborative (DAREC) at Duke University is a research effort into one of the fastest-growing global asset classes—digital assets. DAREC's online research repository is a browseable library of high-quality research, analysis and commentary by Duke experts.

DAREC's goals are to:

  • Contribute to greater knowledge and understanding of digital assets by those in finance, government, academia and the public
  • Supplement and complement Duke's educational programs in financial technology engineering for graduate students, undergraduates, and working professionals
  • Maintain a digital resource of research, analysis, and commentary that is clear, consistent, and academically and computationally rigorous
