9.30am – 3.30pm
Location: Central London, or on request
Get immersed in distributed ledger technology and learn about programmable money.
This course is designed to enable participants to understand blockchain technology, its potential and its shortcomings.
The course is highly interactive and will introduce participants to different distributed ledger implementations, enabling them to trade cryptocurrencies, be more commercially astute in this emerging area of fintech and understand how the entrepreneurs of the future are leveraging blockchain protocols.
The course is taught by experts in Blockchain technology and you will meet leaders and practitioners from leading blockchain companies as part of the course.
Blockchain technology has the potential to change finance, money and almost any other kind of trust based transaction. Venezuela has issued its own crypto currency, Switzerland and Russia are considering doing so and Facebook and Mitsubishi are working on their own proprietary blockchains. Goldman Sachs, The Bank of England, HSBC and many other financial institutions have started to invest in the technology and begun to partner with the most promising blockchain companies whilst the UN and many governments are starting to consider regulations.
Blockchain has the potential to disrupt many industries and market segments. Applications range from transforming supply chain management, to revolutionising housing and energy markets, content distribution and many other sectors.
Yet like every other technology blockchain comes with new terms, acronyms and concepts that are challenging to understand and are developing (and often changing) fast.
This course will enable you to understand the transformative effects of Blockchain on your industry and clients, but will also highlight its limitations and enable participants to see through the hype.
