The Sam M. Walton College of Busines will host Cryptocurrencies: The World of Digital Currency on July 18 at Walton College at 2nd & Main. This course will be a general introduction to cryptocurrencies — how they work, what role they play in societies, and the various technical and regulatory challenges to adoption. Bitcoin, smart contract platforms, and crypto applications being built today will be discussed.
"Participants will gain a basic understanding of how cryptocurrencies work and how they are useful or disruptive in various settings," says professor Michael Oh. "We will explore the nuts and bolts of public blockchains and develop an appreciation of the challenges mainstreaming these assets."
