Cryptocurrency, Blockchain and the Financial Markets


The seminar will give an overview of how blockchain based crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin work and describe some of the financial landscape in which they operate.

I will discuss various challenges in this area, ranging from theoretical issues associated with token language specification, security and anonymity concerns  and legal and regulatory challenges.

The rise of crypto-currencies provides a number of theoretical, legal and commercial challenges and navigating these challenges may play an important part of our financial services landscape in the future.

The seminar would suit mathematicians, computer scientists or those interested in the technical workings of the capital markets.
