Description

The primary use case of digital assets is on their associated blockchain (e.g., Bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, TRON) to facilitate its on-chain transactions and its on-chain applications. This information is quite essential when assessing a blockchain project. In addition, digital assets could also be traded on crypto exchanges very much like the Foreign Exchange (FX) market. The market microstructure of digital assets is quite complex and does not resemble any of the more traditional financial markets (e.g., equities, fixed income, commodities) that we know. It is critical to understand its market microstructure if someone wishes to trade or invest in digital assets and this course will provide the tools for the participant who wants to simply understand the market as well as for those looking for a more intermediate to advanced level of understanding.
