New study published at ECIS 2024

📢📢📢 Exciting news! Our paper, "Negotiation And Translation Between Discursive Fields: A Study On The Diffusion Of Decentralized Finance," has been published at ECIS 2024.

Along with my co-authors Eduard Hartwich, Dr. Tamara RothAlexander Rieger, and Gilbert Fridgen, we explore how emerging technologies such as decentralized finance (DeFi) can be adopted across different belief systems and discursive fields. Based on interviews with 46 experts, our study focuses on blockchain use in financial services. We examine how non-custodians, custodians, and regulators collaborate to form a shared vision for DeFi.

Our research outlines a recursive process model for negotiating and translating diverse perspectives into a unified 'organizing vision'. The resulting model provides valuable insights for newcomers, experienced professionals, and policymakers to support the growth of DeFi.

We also want to express our gratitude to our interview partners, including Georg Lanzinger and Erwin SOTIRI, for their invaluable contributions.
