50886-01 - Vorlesung: FinTech, Digital Currency and Blockchains 3 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende David Yermack (david.yermack@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt This course covers digital currencies, blockchains, and related topics in the FinTech area, perhaps the most significant innovation in the financial world since the advent of double-entry bookkeeping centuries ago. The technology appears to represent an existential challenge for major parts of the finance industry. It is now commonly suggested by experts such as McKinsey that commercial banks and stock exchanges may no longer exist, or may become much smaller, within the next 10 to 20 years, with increasing volumes of payments and exchange taking place on a peer to peer basis.

We will begin with a study of the nature of money and legacy payment and banking systems. We will then study the emergence of stateless, cloud-based digital currency systems since 2009. Further lectures will explore threats that blockchain technology poses to incumbent firms and their resulting attempts to co-opt the technology into existing business models, and the rapid growth of digital finance firms such as Coinbase, Ant Financial, and numerous others. We survey related issues including hacking, “smart contracts,” initial coin offerings, forks, governance, decentralized finance (De-Fi), stablecoins, central bank digital currencies, and emerging regulation.
