The World is Split (English)

Course Duration - 1.5 Hour

Level - Beginner

Course Overview

This course is an initiation to the cryptocurrencies world with a Payments perspective. We will provide a lot of data and take specific examples relevant to the Payments Industry to explain what all this is and is not and how to get involved securely or not. You will learn also about ICOs. What they are and what they are not.

For the longest time, the benefits of technology have been asymmetrical. The data that we create when we make online transactions, for example, are useful to companies and governments. Companies can monetize it but we don’t get anything in return from most of them.

Enter blockchain. Then the disruption began, and the world becomes split. Blockchain has enabled ordinary individuals to take part in transactions that were once only limited to established businesses in the industry. The game is no longer one-sided.

Almost every industry today holds a huge potential for disruption. Is the technology disrupting things for the good, or for the bad? How can we and our businesses adapt to the changes that this disruption may bring? What do the data say about the future of the market and the world, in general?
