The Game of Blockchain
A sequence to learn about blockchain and DeFi whilst practicing trading crypto in a test environment

Are you curious about blockchain technology and do you wish to learn more about cryptocurrencies? Then join this sequence where in 3 sessions you will learn about relevant DeFi theory & put your newly gained knowledge into practice!

Throughout the sequence Luc Correia Cabrito, Portfolio Manager at Icoinic Capital, will discuss amongst others why there are so many tokens and what the added value of blockchain is versus traditional databases. 

This is an exciting and fun way to become more familiar with DeFi and cryptocurrencies and practice in a test environment, guided by an expert in this field!

It is recommended to join the sequence from the beginning to the end, so you do not miss out on any relevant information. It is important to bring your own laptop, as there is a big practice element to each workshop (a phone could be used, but a laptop is recommended). Handouts will be available during and after the session. If you are not able to join from the beginning, then please write an email to us so we can share the handouts with you and get you up to speed ahead of the workshop you will be attending.
