Cryptocurrencies are becoming prominent on the global financial market

Cryptocurrencies have been around for over a decade now, they have been adopted in different sectors in varying degrees. Nonetheless, in the last few years there has been a considerable increase in the creation of new cryptocurrencies on a global scale.

There are countries that are less enthusiastic about the cryptocurrency revolution. For the time being, there is no global regulation for this type of transactions, each country classifies and regulates them differently. As a result of COVID-19, their use has become more frequent because many countries have found cryptocurrencies to be a great alternative in times of crisis. The financial market has changed during the pandemic and until the situation does not go back to normal, the prospects are not very encouraging.

In this regard, there has been an increase in investments in crypto-currencies compared to the traditional market. According to a recent survey by Fidelity, “80% of institutional investors considered digital assets attractive, while 60% of them look positively at Bitcoin as part of their usual portfolio investment. Therefore, it is a great opportunity for cryptocurrencies to play a major role in the global market.

Blockchain and crypto currencies in general are at their best, which has in turn led to a high demand for specialists in the field, ranging from crypto currency software engineers, crypto-analysts, developers, Solidity expert programmers. Apart from that, lawyers specialized in digital assets and in general many professions in which blockchain technology is becoming increasingly relevant.

The BISITE research group and the University of Salamanca have designed a course that intends to respond to the increase in demand for the new professions. The Master and Expert in Blockchain and Smart Contracts gives students the opportunity to learn about different blockchain platforms, to run smart contracts and to use Blockchain and IoT.

If you choose this course, you will have a profession with a promising future. The first students to enrol in the course will get a 25% discount.
