  • Presentazione
  • In the last ten years, the FinTech sector has been heavily influenced by one of its new branches, which we can now consider independent, that is the blockchain. Its first real application, Bitcoin, is the first form of cryptocurrency, or digital money transferable, without the use of intermediaries. Although the blockchain has been created at the beginning for supporting the cryptocurrency, this technology is used today as the basis for many other use cases. This new emerging sector, to which we can generally refer as “decentralized technologies”, rejects the traditional use of intermediaries and tries to give new guarantees to the users to provide them complete control and transparency. Nowadays, the blockchain is considered one of the most promising and rapidly evolving sectors despite the many challenges that it has to tackle with and the technical complexity underlying its implementation. The Master of Advanced Studies in Blockchain, Cryptocurrency and Decentralized Technologies builds upon four main modules, which lay the foundations in today’s driving areas of such technologies: Introduction to Blockchain, Smart contracts development and use cases, Crowdfunding and regulation, and Decentralized technologies. The MAS course ends with a final project developed by the student on a selected topic with a partner operating in this sector. The MAS has been jointly developed by the Department of Innovative Technologies of SUPSI and the Swiss based company Eidoo and it is supported by the European Chamber of Digital Commerce.
  • Obiettivi
  • This master aims at providing in-depth training to the professionals of the future to become the experts in this new technology arena. The finance industry moves into the modern age of real-time transaction processing, in wich blockchain is a core enabling technology. It has the ability to change all aspects of the digital economy, including conducting business, delivering healthcare, shopping, enhancing education and learning, entertainment, and staying connected with a social world. Demand for blockchain, cryptocurrency, and decentralized technologies is growing everywhere, thus the same applies to professionals who are proved to be experts in this field.
  • Requisiti
  • The MAS is aimed at all graduated people (Bachelor/Master Degree) with relevant professional experience in the ICT environment. The Master program may also be open to people with equivalent qualifications. In this case, once the application form has been received, the MAS committee will check the suitability of the applicant.

  • Programma
  • Module 1 – Introduction to Blockchain This module puts the financial and cryptographic basis on top of which the concepts of blockchain and cryptocurrencies have been built. The student will learn the paradigm and the fundamental assumptions backing such technology. Courses (duration 120 hours): - Computer Networks and System Security (48h) - Cryptographic primitives (48h) - From e-money to cryptocurrency (24h) Module 2 - Smart contracts development and use cases Among the main applications of blockchain technology are the so-called “smart contracts”. This module provides the students with appropriate tools for them to design and develop Decentralized Applications as well as understand the complexities and caveats connected with smart contracts development. Courses (duration 240 hours): - Blockchain technology issues and use cases (72h) - Smart contracts overview (24h) - Smart contracts development (72h) - Enterprise blockchain applications (72h) Module 3 – Crowdfunding and regulation The cryptocurrencies market represents the intersection of a variety of sectors, including the financial and the IT ones. As such, it creates both a paradigm shift in the way activities like investments and company management currently work and a consequent challenge for the regulators, that find themselves dealing with a new unregulated territory. During the module, the student will be presented with the regulatory challenges of this new market. Courses (duration 84 hours): - Token economy (36h) - Blockchain regulatory frameworks (48h) Module 4 – Decentralized technologies Blockchain technology is expected to have a horizontal impact, affecting the way a variety of industries currently work. At the basis of this flourishing future is the set up of new concepts and tools, that bring with themselves both obstacles and opportunities. This module provides the student with an educated overview of the industry and how the various elements interoperate, as well as the opportunities and the challenges for the future. Courses (duration 96 hours): - Decentralized databases and file storage (24h) - Reputation systems, oracles and digital identity (48h) - Advanced blockchain governance (24h) Master Thesis Advanced blockchain development and tools. Building a project within a company.
