“Looking at the global trend especially as someone who is working financial sector it´s a very promising technology that everybody is going to adopt it near future”

What are the key points of the master’s and how has your experience been so far?

When I started, I had zero skills and knowledge about blockchain. But over time, now, after four-five months, my confidence has increased dramatically. In addition to my new skills in blockchain, I’ve also been able to meet people and sharing my knowledge with them has been a very satisfying experience. The end result of my studies is going to be the application of blockchain.

What has this master’s degree meant for your career?

Looking at the global trend, as someone working in the financial sector, it’s a very promising technology that everybody is going to adopt soon. I haven’t applied blockchain at my current job, but, for the first time, thanks to this technology, I’m actually thinking about becoming an entrepreneur. I’m already talking with people, networking and thinking about my project that will change the lives of the people.
