The World is split - Initiation to Bitcoin, Cryptocurrencies and ICOs for Payments Professionals


Everyone has heard about Bitcoin, some have heard about Ethereum, Ripple, EOS or Stellar. Few have heard about DASH, OmiseGO but almost no one knows about Sharkcoin or Richcoin. There are so many like these.


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.


The second module of the course will look into funding. Where to raise money in the US and look into a new phenomenon which is ICO, Initial Coin Offering. We will explain what it is, the state of the regulation, the risks associated and what is missing at this stage.


This course is a good introduction to our 2 other courses that are taught at UCLA Anderson and UCLA - The World of Blockchain and The Business Applications of the Blookchain by Alex Nascimento, Professor at UCLA.
