This course covers recent developments in the area of financial innovation (FINTECH), such as Blockchain, digital currencies, peer-to-peer method of identifying ownership, and smart contracts. Its goal is to briefly analyze the emergence of Blockchain and related innovations as highly disruptive technologies for the financial industry, business laws, accounting and central banking. We will cover various related topics such as the nature of money, legacy payment and banking, basics of crypto technology, digital currency systems, peer-to-peer transactions, governance and regulation of emerging technologies, double entry bookkeeping, and financial exchanges. We will also focus on several digital currencies, their “intrinsic value,” the reasons for their recent popularity, and the microstructure of their trading.

1.       The test will consist of 20-25 questions for 50-60 mins. According to the past experience, there is more than enough time.

2.       Questions are displayed in blocks consisting of 2-4 Qs. After completing the block, it is not possible to return back (important!)

3.       The questions are generated randomly from a wider set of tasks and the individual answers (a to e) are randomly mixed

4.       Some answers are formulated with the options "all answers a, b, c are correct", "none of the answers a, b, c is correct" ... since the answers are randomly shuffled, that "a, b, c" does not necessarily answer reality, take it as "all answers are correct" or "no answer is correct" (important!)

5.       It is not possible to return to the test after submitting it

6.       It is necessary to click on "end of test" in the moodle, then "Submit all and finish", then again " Submit all and finish "
