The essay competition invited participants to examine how the networks and mechanism of price formation are likely to evolve in the future, with mobile devices becoming more ubiquitous, powerful and connected at the edge of the computing network, with a corresponding shift towards decentralised (and even fully distributed) transactions and market places. Implications for rule-setting and regulation and or auction design for a well governed decentralised market should be discussed.
