The Finance, Law, and Economics Working Group is happy to welcome you to participate in the second webinar on cryptocurrencies: "Solving the Block-Chain Puzzle: A non-technical introduction to Cryptocurrency technology", which will be held on Thursday, August 10, 2017, at 17:00 (CET).
Description of the Event:
The first Webinar "Cryptocurrencies: A Law and Economics Perspective", has focused on alternative economic theories that challenge the mainstream thinking about money and the role of banks in credit creation. We have discussed how these alternative propositions led to the advent of Cryptocurrencies, the challenges they pose to financial regulatory authorities, and their potential for financial innovation.
A key point when discussing Cryptocurrencies is understanding the
nuances of the underlying block-chain technology. A basic comprehension of this technology is essential to appreciate the
disruption that cryptocurrencies brought into the monetary debate, the legal challenges involved, and the reasons why regulatory authorities consider it as a technology that needs to be nurtured.
The webinar aims to address the topic at a non-technical level, in which no prior technological background is required. In fact, understanding such a foundational mechanism will be helpful for the subsequent sessions that will be hosted as part of the present webinar series.
The invited Speaker is Dr. Srinivas Yanamandra, who has presented the previous webinar from the Cryptocurrency series, we are glad to have him back!
