Ledger receives grant from Bitcoin Unlimited

The Editorial Team at Ledger is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from Bitcoin Unlimited to help improve the research journal's publication process.  

As described in the proposal for funding, we intend to "(1) decrease the average turnaround time (from submission to the first round of reviewer of feedback) to 6 weeks from its current time of 12+ weeks, (2) increase the average number of reviewers per article from 2.5 to 3.5, and (3) to publish 12-15 articles in 2017."

The bulk of this grant will be used to fund Richard Ford Burley as a part-time editor, and Ledger's only paid member of the otherwise-all-volunteer Editorial Team.  Richard has a degree in English and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at Boston College. He has extensive writing/editing/publishing experience and is broadly knowledgeable about Bitcoin.
