Training on Understanding Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies.

BlockChain revolution has already started disruption in the financial industry and it is believed that it would bring about the next big revolution in the IT sector. Bitcoins, ethereum and other cryptocurrencies are all the rage today, but we have very limited understanding of them here in Bhutan today.

In order to be better prepared for the future, it will be important for leaders and managers in your company to understand the current state of this technology and take stock of where it is heading.

Thimphu TechPark has taken the initiative to organize a 5-day intensive training program titled “Understanding Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies for Managers” from 13th – 17th August 2018 at Namgay Heritage, Thimphu, in collaboration with London Institute of Business & Technology, Bangkok. The resource person will be Mr Lodewijk Veldhuijzen, CEO of Anything App AnyCoin. He is an industry expert with vast knowledge and experience in Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and ICO (Initial Coin Offering).

 

The course is designed to induce a competent level of understanding of key developments surrounding the blockchain and cryptocurrencies. It will cover all the major aspects and components that dictate the current market dynamics of the rapidly evolving crypto-financial economy, and enable individuals as well as organizations to transition from a passive or reactive stance to having the ability for critical decision- making in a proactive manner.
