Basics of FinTech: Part III - Blockchain Bitcoin

Technology - Stanley Epstein

From new companies in California, New York, London, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, business people are applying their inventiveness and specialized resourcefulness up and down the budgetary administration's esteem chain.

This influx of development guarantees a transformation in the generation and utilization of monetary administrations. Apropos joining the words "money related" and "innovation" the FinTech upset guarantees changes that will democratize budgetary administrations.

The FinTech revolution holds much promise. Expected benefits include:

  • Consumers who will get more choice, better-targeted services and keener pricing.
  • Small and medium-sized businesses who will get access to new credit.
  • Banks that will become more productive, with lower transaction costs, greater capital efficiency and stronger operational resilience.
  • The financial system itself that will become more resilient with greater diversity, redundancy and depth.
  • New forms of currency (like Bitcoin) that will change the way we think of and use the money.
  • And most fundamentally, financial services that will be more inclusive; with people better connected, more informed and increasingly empowered.

Because of its seemingly vast and varied scope FinTech is not really understood by many in the real world, whether they be business executives, managers or staff (who fail to understand what technology can do) or technologists themselves (who have scant knowledge of the practical needs/problems of business and finance).

This three-part course is a basic primer to understanding FinTech in all its forms and guises.

In Part 3 we take a wider view the blockchain, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in terms of what they are and how they work as well as their respective advantages and disadvantages and the risks they could introduce.

 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the world of the blockchain, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
  • Discover how Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) works.
  • Identify the advantages and disadvantages of cryptocurrencies.
