Digital Assets – Fundamentals and How It Works in Practice
September 20, 2022
This 2-day course lays the foundation for a basic understanding, how blockchain and consensus mechanism work. It also introduces different types of digital assets, their storage and transfer value. Once the fundamental concepts are understood, the course runs the students through the value chain of digital asset banking. Also, it generates a basic understanding of decentralised finance (DeFi), including its risks, and compares against centralised financial services around digital assets. At the end of the course, an outlook is given on what the world can expect from Web 3.0 across verticals & horizontals by creating an understanding of the composability of elements involved.
