Masterclass by professor Pablo Soler Bach
Blockchain: a safety-efficiency-speed conundrum?
In this masterclass we will discuss the different nature of public and permissioned blockchain networks, and how those affect the development and characteristics of different types of business applications, including the most widespread: cryptocurrencies. We will explore whether fully decentralised blockchain technology has real use cases in business and whether crypto can function as a store of value (investment) or as a medium of exchange (payment), and how and why governments and Central Banks are starting to regulate, promote or even ban them altogether.
