Our Level 1 Cryptocurrencies course is designed to give the learner a fundamental comprehension of how and why Cryptos originated, how/where they are evolving, and how to learn to trade them and discover market opportunities. A cryptocurrency (or cryptocurrency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure the transactions. A defining feature of a cryptocurrency and arguably its most endearing allure is its organic nature: it is not issued by any central authority, rendering it theoretically immune to government interference or manipulation.

So why do I need to know about these?

Cryptos are the EVOLUTION of Money and Blockchain Tech is the REVOLUTION of Trust. This is a big a deal as going from Bartering to Coined Money 2400 years ago or from Coined Money to Digital Money in the 1970s. What the Internet did for Communication, Cryptos will do the same for Money. As a Crypto can’t simply be printed willy nilly like the Pound or Dollar due to their Cryptographic algorithms and that they are decentralised, open sourced, transparent and you can now send money INSTANTLY with zero fees, it’s a paradigm shift for Money....

Sustainable Local Economic Development: Supporting Firms and Farms (LED)

IHS, Institute For Housing and Urban Development Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam
Online & Campus Combined Part time May 2019 Netherlands Rotterdam

Rationale of the Training Course - Sustainable Local Economic Development: The focus of this course is on creating and managing multi-stakeholder processes that take place in the local and regional urban economy. [+]

Rationale of the training course

The focus of this course is on creating and managing multi-stakeholder processes that take place in the local and regional urban economy. Regions and localities are faced with two mayor trends in opposite directions: internationalisation and decentralisation. Internationalisation exacerbates the interactions between the global and the local levels but operates selectively. It includes only those actors that participate in networks in which competitiveness drives constant transformations and restructuring. Decentralisation is a means to coping with complexity and a reaction to growing demands for greater responsiveness and sustainability by citizens, clients and consumers. The two trends have changed how the multiple stakeholders relate to each other in the local and regional economy. Competition and cooperation are blended in the links between firms, between firms and state and non-state actors. The central concern for the governance of sustainable local economic development is to create synergies between the policies and interventions of business, state and non-state or civic actors. These come together around specific opportunities for local economic development for small and medium-sized enterprises.... [-]
