Why You Should Attend

Live Online Training Course: Blockchain Technology within the Financial Services Sector

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set

Unlike the more familiar financial technologies, blockchain has the potential to change the way individuals transact at a very fundamental level. It works as a repository, where the data within its ledger is kept immutable. It also offers a network, where trust between parties can be hard coded and it stands as an infrastructure, which has the potential to usurp institutions at all scales. Blockchain is no longer new, and despite early hype and hysteria, we continue to see the price of Bitcoin (Blockchain’s most prominent use case) soar to incredible new heights – most recently with the endorsement of Elon Musk.

What’s more, niche protocols within the Blockchain space known as DeFi (Decentralized Finance) now have a market cap of almost 40B USD, growing from 500M USD in less than one year. Institutions and investors can choose not to engage, but they can no longer choose to ignore the growth of the Blockchain space. Understanding the principles of Blockchain, how and why the technology exists, and what experiments and use cases are being developed right now, have become essential in order to take a well-informed position within the financial sector.

Through this innovative course, participants will build a solid conceptual understanding of the technology and will be presented with cutting-edge use cases and develop the tools to assess their validity.Finally, they will navigate the evolving regulatory environment and test opportunities for using the blockchain within their organization.
