Online Masterclass: The Role of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies in Changing the Financial Sector
Join us online from China, hong Kong & Taiwan!
We would love for you to join us online – ‘The Role of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies in Changing the Financial Sector’ by Professor Paolo Giancane.
Blockchain will significantly change the financial services industry by eliminating intermediaries, moving towards what experts suggest as machine-to-machine payments.
This masterclass offers an inspiring look at blockchain and how this technology will disrupt many faces of business activity. While facing relevant regulatory scrutiny and more time and investments are needed to develop and foster commercial applications, blockchain is not a temporary trend.
Moreover, a discussion on cryptocurrencies and their inclusion as a new investment asset class will help understand the potential of blockchain. We will finally look at Libra, Facebook’s glamourous crypto, as an interesting attempt to “stable coins” acceptance.
