Blockchain for Financial Markets

Get past all the hype around blockchains and gain a definitive understanding of the current state, as well as realistic expectations, of this technology.

Analyze the most promising private blockchain solutions via a series of workshops, coding exercises and real-world examples. Explore different Smart Contract possibilities and their use, as well as the reality of Initial Coin Offering (ICO), with a focus on current financial applications, privacy and scalability issues, and a look at future applications that can be developed.

The programme draws on the underlying technology and the business model of public blockchains - Bitcoin and Ethereum - to form the knowledge base, upon which you will learn how to develop businesses; as well as understanding how this can revolutionize transactions, securities, financial contracts and platform apps.

The teacher, Dr Massimo Morini, has 15 year experience in leading model and software development in banks. He started research on Blockchain back in 2013 and wrote the first articles proposing blockchain and smart contracts as a solution for modernizing financial markets, which have been quoted various times by US CFTC and US Senate. Since then, Dr Morini has worked on derivatives and clearing on the Blockchain, developing the first test market for collateralized derivatives in Ethereum. He has been a board member at R3, the London-based bank Blockchain consortium, where he led the Collateral and Risk Management working group and the Financial Intermediaries research.

Dr Morini is also a professor of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies at Bocconi Business School and Swiss Finance Institute, and a member of the scientific committee for Blockchain Lab, a Swiss-based consortium of Bitcoin developers. His work on Blockchain for Finance has been featured on the Risk Magazine, Coindesk, Harward Business Review, the Bitcoin Magazine and other journals in both the financial and blockchain world.
