Cryptocurrency / Blockchain - Education

Recommended Posts

I am starting a new thread where any relevant material in relation to education for Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain shall be posted here so that everything is on one thread and it eliminates the need to keep on starting new threads.

To start things off I am sharing this latest news from Bloomberg.

A couple of weeks ago my wife's niece came from Boston, US and she is in the medical profession.

She was telling me how cryptocurrencies, blockchain, automation / robotics, artificial intelligence was flooding the medical / health care sector and health care start ups in Boston were using (above) to improve their business offerings. 

I have just read the link below which nicely illustrates and supports what she was telling me.

This is very interesting and I am sure this decision was not taken lightly either.

Lloyd's of London Makes Quiet Entrance Into Crypto Insurance Market

It just shows how the Crypto market is evolving and is becoming part of the future we are yet to see. This is why one must have an open mind and not let historical patterns and historical behaviour blind us to seeing a new vision and future.

India is a market with enormous potential for Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain. I was in India recently and was astonished at the level of knowledge that people in Gujarat have on this subject area compared to people generally in the UK.

The article below shows how serious India is about this area.

I have posted this on another one of my threads but this specific post sits nicely on both threads to catch a larger audience. It is a short two minute video from the World Economic Forum on what is Blockchain?

This is a rather interesting article:

How the development of cryptocurrency and blockchain influenced higher education in the USA

https://www.techbullion.com/how-the-development-of-cryptocurrency-and-blockchain-influenced-higher-education-in-the-usa/

This article offers the potential of Blockchain in an area which I had not really considered:

How blockchain could disrupt employee training

Once governments start offering the platform and opportunities for its younger generation to acquire the education, knowledge, understanding and application of this technology, countries around the world will really begin to see the benefits.

Blockchain education is now a reality. 

It is available in select Universities in the UK albeit only a handful right now but it is a start.

    • Perhaps even less stellar is that none of the essential "Greeks", except for Implied Volatility, are published for any Options on Indexes and Commodities. Options are therefore impossible to price in order to judge "fair value" using any of the traditional metrics. Also since "Theta" is missing one has no idea of the time decay in valuation etc. etc... An account with a futures broker seems the only way if one is serious about Index or Commodity options. I also have an account with Nabtrade, which allows buying calls and puts, as well as writing covered calls for many individual shares but does not allow writing puts, covered or otherwise. What's a punter to do I ask you...?
    • I joined IG  to trade Options chains. and when i enquired i was told i could do this on the Spread Betting platform.  No mention of  needing to telephone in - feel both surprised and disappointed. most likely will close ac. as do not understand why this information was not mentioned
