About this event

We are delighted to invite you to our unique WT Crypto Academy, which will deal with the technological and economic aspects of crypto assets and blockchains on four consecutive evenings. The lecturer is a well-known expert in this field and has a wealth of hands-on experience. He will help you to assess the opportunities and risks of this new technology and to get a head start into this seemingly arcane topic. A particular focus of the WT Crypto Academy will be on practical applications. Level up now, there has never been a better time!

The sessions will be on four consecutive evenings from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. CET. The lecturer will be available for a further hour from 8 p.m. - 9 p.m. CET each evening, as part of an "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) session. The price tag for the four evenings (in total sixteen hours of condensed information) is EUR 200 + 20% VAT. The lecturer's past performance in similar events is possibly indicative of future results.

Evening 3 on 19 January 2022 ("Deep Dive into DeFi") will for example cover the classification of stable coins, Tether (USDT), DAI, Ampleforth (AMPL), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) and other forms of tokenized Bitcoin on Ethereum, advantages and disadvantages of Decentralized Finance (DeFi), lending and borrowing on platforms such as AAVE, Compound and C.R.E.A.M., use cases, yield bouncers, flash loans, liquidity mining, yield farming, DeFi exploits and rug pulls, decentralized exchanges (DEXes) such as UniSwap, operation of automated market makers (AMMs) in comparison to the order book model, DEX aggregators such as 1Inch, insurance against smart contract failure such as on Nexus Mutual, synthetic assets such as those on Synthetix and Mirror (for example mirrored Tesla – mTSLA), decentralized investment funds such as on TokenSets, decentralized transfers such as on Sablier, the concept of composability ("money legos"), DeFi forks and vampire attacks, degenerate finance, gas prices on Ethereum, the future of Ethereum, DeFi on other blockchains such as Binance Smart Chain, and DeFi dashboards such as Zapper and Debank.

Evening 4 on 20 January 2022 ("Crypto for the Savvy Investor") will for example cover the value and price of bitcoin, bitcoin price history, bitcoin price prediction models, volatility, the correlation of bitcoin and other (crypto) assets, leading and lagging indicators for bitcoin price movements, Silicon Valley's attitudes to bitcoin, the stock-to-flow ratio, challenges for institutional investors, third party custodians, traditional investment products linking to bitcoin, important terminology for bitcoin investors, the crypto fear & greed index, crypto arbitrage, the richest people in crypto, bitcoin operations security, retail adoption of bitcoin, opportunities (lack of trust, negative interest rates, monetary policy, privacy and internet penetration) and threats (reputation, power consumption, 51% attacks, whales, scalability, regulation, hackers, complexity, governance and lack of effective usage) regarding bitcoin, websites, newsletters, blogs, documentaries, twitter accounts and telegram groups concerning crypto, crypto rating systems, altcoins, the 100 most important coins and tokens, privacy coins such as Monero, Libra/Diem, social tokens, and crypto infrastructure investments (blockchains, bridges, oracles and indexers).

Here are some reviews of past events:

  • "Amazing breadth of knowledge. A topic I knew virtually nothing about a few days ago and I feel like I have a good base of knowledge now. Very well presented. Easy to follow. Informative slides and great use of websites to illustrate points and back up the theory with real-world application."
  • "The whole approach is imbibed with Niklas' infectious enthusiasm and excellent command of the topic. The breadth and depth of the content is well designed to cater to a range of participants according to their particular knowledge level and requirements. The intensity of some of the topics is made palatable by well-placed topical anecdotes and Niklas' self-effacing, superb sense of humour."
  • "I loved the fact that the presentation covered a lot of ground that is usually not included in workshops about blockchain/crypto, particularly DeFi and mining. Niklas is an enthusiastic speaker who clearly knows his topic well."
