This is the first of a series on the management of financial resources in retirement, programs designed to provide a variety of ideas on investing and investment options for retirees. 

In this session, you’ll be able to satisfy your curiosity about cryptocurrencies and the underlying technology that supports and enables cryptocurrencies. Whether you’ve never heard of Bitcoin, or are an avid investor in Ethereum, you’ll come away with a deeper understanding of the evolving role of cryptocurrencies and how people are making money on both blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Professor Brad Chandler, UW–Madison School of Business, will talk about the evolution of blockchain technology and the critical role it plays in cryptocurrencies, as well as in any other supply chain that demands accountability. Brad is the Director of the Nicholas Center for Corporate Finance and Investment Banking at the Wisconsin School of Business.


Shailesh Shah of Coinbase will also speak. He comments, “As an engineer, I started learning more about the blockchain technology that is powering the backbone of all cryptocurrencies. I became very interested in the technology and found myself in the early days of developing a cryptocurrency trading platform. I hope I can share some of what I've learned with all of you.”

This session is co-sponsored by the Committee on Financial Matters in Retirement and the Electronic Technology Committee
