By now, it is common knowledge that blockchain is an immutable, distributed ledger that allows parties to interact without the need for a trusted intermediary. From finance to manufacturing, blockchain has been touted as having the ability to unlock previously unattainable value. While the technical basics have been learned by many, few have explored its value-driving principle: economics.

Join us in this virtual series as we speak with Prof. Kevin Werbach, the Professor of Legal Studies & Business Ethics, The Liem Sioe Liong/First Pacific Company Professor, and Chairperson, Legal Studies and Business Ethics at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, about the new Wharton Executive Education program “Economics of Blockchain and Digital Assets”.

Prof Webarch, the program’s Academic Director, will talk about how the course allows business and finance professionals to:

  • Understand the benefits and costs of blockchain relative to alternative technologies
  • Identify relevant use cases for blockchain, smart contracts, and digital assets
  • Analyze the fundamental value and investing drivers of various digital assets
  • Discuss the role of regulation in the digital assets economy and how it applies to blockchain-based services
  • Assess structures and processes of decentralized organizations
  • Evaluate the right blockchain networks to launch a digital asset
