Cryptocurrency - The Parallel Financial World

Cryptocurrency is the biggest challenge and opportunity ever seen by the incumbent financial system. Crypto has built a parallel financial world independent from existing financial markets. As a non-sovereign currency based solely on maths and algorithms, the cryptocurrency and decentralized finance protocols built on blockchain have been a game-changer and brings a paradigm shift. What does blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and decentralized finance mean for individual investors, financial professionals, corporates, and government? How do we understand and evaluate the investment opportunities in this emerging asset class and parallel financial system. In this webinar, Cynthia will endeavour to answer these questions.
