When anyone talks about Digital Currencies inevitably the question arises whether one should get involved in this new phenomena. Should I Invest in it? Can I pay taxes? How governments will regulate transactions with Cryptocurrencies? What’s the role of Banks? Could blockchain become the underlying infrastructure of the future Capital Markets Union?
In order to answer these questions, and more to come, SDGC partnering with a successful trader/investor decided to organise this Workshop.
Misunderstood outside the boutique industries of micro-finance and tech startups, cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology are yet moving fast into the mainstream. Banks, insurance companies and the financial press are scrambling to understand their implications.
Once a conceptual twinkle in the eye of Cypherpunks – an online movement of anarchic libertarian-leaning cryptographers – cryptocurrencies have become a social, technical and economic reality.
Bitcoin, the first widely implemented cryptocurrency, arose from the ashes of the 2008 global financial crisis as a codified alternative to trusting fiat currencies that are heavily influenced by private banks and the nation state.
Bitcoin’s decentralised protocol – the blockchain – promised to free people from an oppressive global monetary system and put financial power back into the hands of the masses. But for those not technically inclined, a host of startup companies have produced fee-based systems that simplify use of the blockchain. A fledgling industry sector has spawned, receiving over one billion U.S. dollars in capital investment to date.
Its software architecture and algorithms are being configured by startup companies and platforms such as Ethereum to reorganise information in banking, law and accountancy via smart contracts, techno-equity and decentralised registers. This workshop introduces cryptocurrencies, bringing academic researchers together with industry representatives to discuss the phenomenon of alternative monetary systems such as Bitcoin and the capacity of blockchain architectures to scale and reorganise institutional cultures and social practices.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Entrepreneurs and Business Owners; Importer, Exporter and Manufacturing Firms; Investor and Fund Manager; Investment Bankers and Regulators; and Anyone, seeking knowledge and willing to explore the Investment opportunities in the Digital Space.

After more than six years from the invention of the first cryptocurrency, the ecosystem has kept evolving at great pace. This disruptive innovation provides the potential to give citizens direct control over their financial activities by removing costly -and sometimes obscure- intermediation layers fostering financial inclusion. However, disintermediated financial systems introduce new forms of frauds and cyber-crime. It is therefore important to understand the socio-economic and monetary aspects of the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Module V: How Banks in across the World are joining with Cryptocurrencies.
Bitcoin exists because we need something like cash in internet. Banks have understood this problem and they want to explore this ecosystem by creating new services.

Module X: The Internet of Things: Smart devices powered by the Blockchain
There are several important implications for the Internet of Things and the development of Smart Systems. For one, blockchain technology could provide a way to track the unique history of individual devices, by recording a ledger of data exchanges between it and other devices, web services, and human users. Blockchains could also enable smart devices to become independent agents, autonomously conducting a variety of transactions. Imagine a vending machine that can not only monitor and report its own stock, but can solicit bids from distributors and pay for the delivery of new items automatically — based, of course, on the purchase history of its customers.
