As I mentioned in previous blog entries, Michael Adam and Dr. David Krause are offering a module in FINA 4330 on blockchain and financial institutions - which will be followed next week by a module on blockchain and cryptocurrencies. These are the first of several modules that will be offered to AIM students at Marquette University on the topic of FinTech.
Michael Adam is the founder of BankMyBiz (https://www.bankmybiz.com/) and DocLaunch (https://www.doclaunch.com/). He and Dr. Krause have prepared three lectures on blockchain and its growing impact on financial institutions. The AIM juniors are encouraged to attend the 11:00 FINA 4330 classes this week and next, if possible.
Additionally, the new Marquette student blockchain club has organized a tour of the MYOB bitcoin mining operation in downtown Milwaukee this Friday afternoon (2/16/18) at 4 p.m. Marquette students are welcome to attend. (To sign up or get additional information about the MU Blockchain Club), please reach out to the club officers at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
