Bitcoin & Co: Understanding the business case of crypto assets
The past few years have seen rapid growth in crypto assets which are digital assets recorded on a distributed ledger. The success of bitcoin and Co. has not escaped the public eye and crypto assets seem to be more than ever on the edge of mass adoption. Following a bull market in 2020 and 2021, and a bear market in 2022, it is expected that better times are ahead in 2023 and 2024.
More recently, financial institutions and asset managers developed new investment products, payment service providers include crypto currencies in their payment platforms and multinational groups are allocating cash to digital assets as a hedge against inflation. Governments and regulators around the world have a close look at crypto with a view to introduce regulation, and in some cases adopt crypto as legal tender.
All this suggests that crypto assets are worth paying attention to and everybody should have a basic understanding of these developments and the opportunities linked to crypto assets.
This workshop provides an overview of the world of crypto assets, how investments may be made and considers the business case and future potential of a young asset class that is here to stay.
