Ledger is the first peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology research.[1] The journal covers aspects of mathematics, computer science, engineering, law, economics and philosophy that relates to cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.[2]

The journal is journal published open access by the University Library System of the University of Pittsburgh and is cosponsored by the University of Pittsburgh Press.[3]

The idea for the journal was born out of a discussion between managing editors Peter R. Rizun and Christopher E. Wilmer on the bitcoin forum bitcointalk.org. A call for papers was issued on 15 September 2015 with the deadline set at 31 December 2015 but following delays in formalising the review process the inaugural issue was not published until December 2016.[2]
