Infocus International Group, a global business intelligence provider of strategic information and professional services, has launched a brand new online workshop –FinTech & Cryptocurrency which will be commencing live on 9 March 2022.

This is a live online course running over seven sessions. The first two sessions cover FinTech that enable and disrupt existing banking practices by using the possibilities of technology. Participants will identify new challengers that disrupt the status quo.

Participants will see how Alibaba and Starbucks affected payments and how they became a financial services company. Participants will focus on the risks and opportunities, but mostly, participants will identify where the next gold mine lies for financial institutions.

Throughout the online course, we will look at data analytics and what banks have done in the space of systems architecture, payment analytics, behavioural analytics and using neuroscience. All the above requires digital payment solutions.

This begs the question on how to create a digital currency. With blockchain and cryptocurrencies on the rise, the following sessions explain the underlying mechanisms.

Firstly, we must understand the basics of cryptography. Then, we must understand the Digital Ledger Technology (DLT). In order to master the workings, we breakdown the Digital Ledger Technology into its hashes and blocks before chaining them together to the blockchain.

Then we compare Bitcoin to other cryptocurrencies. During the course, participants will be given free bitcoin to set up a crypto wallet and make some first payments to the peers. After checking out pitfalls and risks, the course will end with a game reinforcing all the learnings. We encourage critical thinking in participants and present the latest knowledge in this area. 

Anna from Italy shared that, “Trainer is simply excellent. Thanks to his clarity, very complex issues become easy and understandable to the great satisfaction of trainees. I go back very often to the notes of that seminar and find them at any time clear and useful.”
