MAS in Blockchain, Cryptocurrency and Decentralized Technologies
MAS in Blockchain, Cryptocurrency and Decentralized Technologies
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.
