Metaverse is a virtual hub constructed by many technologies, and blockchain plays an important role in it. In this 1-day workshop, the trainer shall cover concepts, latest development, up-to-date market trends and business use cases of blockchain, as well as referencing to the latest blockchain topics like NFT (Non-fungible token), DApp (Decentralized Application), DeFi (Decentralized Finance) and etc. To enhance participants’ experiential learning experience, the trainer will make use of the proprietary designed mobile application and interactive activities during dedicated sessions. From the interactive activities, the participants could grasp the blockchain concepts and applications more effectively.

The course welcomes professionals from different functions who wish to gain basic understanding of blockchain technologies and associated applications such as NFT, GameFi, DeFi, Metaverse in a fun, layman and engaging way.


Programme Highlights

  • Highlighting the issues of current Internet model: lack of peer-to-peer trust and the issue of centralization
  • Explaining in layman terms on how blockchain addresses trust issues in current internet model by using Distributed Ledger Architecture
  • Understanding the fundamental concepts of blockchain by participating a fun mobile app game. Participants will learn about these during the game:
    • Blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT)
    • Benefits of decentralizationarchitecture that enables peer to peer transactions in a “trustless” fashion
    • Distributed Ledger among networks nodes
    • Concepts of “Mining” by exploring different consensus protocols (Proof of Work, Proof of Stake) in decentralized architecture
    • Asymmetric key encryption, Public Key & Private Key
    • Smart contract
    • DApp (Decentralized Application)
    • How blockchain is applied in Metaverse
    • Latest development of NFT, and how it works in creative industry and Metaverse
    • Blockchain applications in different industries/functions such as Finance, Health care, Real estate, logistics, HR, etc.
