Token Swaps: A technical and practical introduction to the economics of the blockchain

In this 2-day course, we will design the flow of a “token swap”, also known as “ICO” or “Initial Coin Offering”. With the recent improvements in blockchain technology, there are more and more use cases and businesses will be able to utilize the fundamental benefits that it can provide. Blockchain applications provide unprecedented accountability, transparency and trust.

One of the most recent “killer app” on the blockchain is poised to disrupt an unexpected industry:VCs and Angel Investors. Token swaps or ICOs are the direct evolution of crowd fundings, fully utilising the blockchain’s ability to remove 3rd parties, and to provide accountability and transparency in processes.
