Deep-Dive into Blockchain & Cryptocurrency
The landscape of financial planning has seen disruptive innovation with the introduction of technology. From peer-to-peer lending platforms to robo-advisors, financial technology or “Fintech” give rise to new investment opportunities and with it, new scope of considerations in your financial planning. In this course, we specifically deep-dive into the hottest topic: Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies.
The cryptocurrency market is a global phenomenon that has grown over 4100% in the past year alone, with a market cap of US$12 billion in July 2016 to over US$500 billion today. This translates to heightened interests from major institutional investors including major banks, fund houses and even governments.
With the surge of the cryptocurrency market cap & increasing mainstream adoption, it is more important now than ever to know how cryptocurrencies work (Yes, it is more than just Bitcoin!), how to acquire & keep your assets secure, and the powerful world-changing technology behind it known as The Blockchain.
Unlike other courses out there that tells you that Bitcoin promises you untold riches and get rich quick, this course serves only to demysitfy and to give you the down and dirty: how to safekeep your assets, how to identify and prevent scams, how the world-chainging technology is so much more than Bitcoin... and most importantly, how to navigate the Blockchain Revolution safely.

“A fascinating - and reassuring - insight into a technology with the power to remake the global economy.” -Paul Polman; CEO of Unilever
