A year ago, cryptocurrency prices, ICOs, and stories of unscrupulous activity gained the attention of members, unsure if this was innovation or hype. In July 2018, stating “This is no passing fad”, the CFA Institute announced the addition of cryptocurrency and blockchain to the CFA curriculum, beginning in June 2019. According to Greenwich Associates, in 2017 financial services companies spent $1.7 billion on blockchain, with 14% of those surveyed already deploying blockchain solutions. Today there are over 1500 cryptocurrencies, ICOs have raised over $9 billion in 2018, and there are close to 300 cryptocurrency funds. Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are top of mind for regulators, legislators, central banks, the IMF, the World Economic Forum and others. Learning Outcome Statements (LOS): 3-5 Bullet Points
- Gain an understanding of blockchain, cryptocurrencies and the current state of the industry
- Understand areas of the financial services industry where blockchain and cryptocurrency are being explored and which areas are closest to widespread adoption
- Areas outside financial services that represent the most promising use cases/investment opportunities
- How the technology will impact the skills required for a career in financial services
