MFIT 892 Crypto-Economics and Payments
Distributed ledger technologies, like Blockchain and Ethereum, have changed how people view and transfer funds and how economics of the future will function. Central-bank issued digital currencies, Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies and tokens are changing the way that firms acquire funding. The course will cover the technology and economics driving these changes including consensus mechanism, use case and other application. These and other topics will be explored in depth during this course. This course will include joint sessions with Payments Canada that will include guest lecturers, a joint case study, and insight into the future of payments and payments regulation world-wide. Iso-labs will provide a payments sand-box for students to use.
