This course is suited to all participants who want to enhance their understanding of Islamic and various other economic principles as they relate to the function of money and more specifically decentralised cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
We will examine the role that money plays based on its economic function and the specific problem that cryptocurrencies are attempting to solve.
Finally, we will assess the economic limitations of cryptocurrencies, trends in technology such as the blockchain, ICOs and what the future of money (and payment solutions) might hold.
