Distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) as a disrupter of retail markets

This document is the review protocol for CREDS project ‘Distributed Ledger Technologies’.

It is standard practice when doing an evidence review to set out in advance how the review will be conducted – this is called a ‘protocol’.  Among other things, this lets others see and give input on the proposed approach. This document is the review protocol for CREDS project ‘Distributed Ledger Technologies’, which is looking to identify evidence on possible social impacts of block-enabled peer-to-peer energy trading. It gives an indication of how we intend to identify evidence and analyse it once we have done so. Because of the type of review (a rapid realist review) this protocol is particularly flexible. If you have any questions or comments on the protocol, or think your work could be relevant to the review, please contact Michael Fell.
