Investment or Illusion? by Ahmad Rahnema


The ESADE Alumni Colombia Chapter is pleased to invite you, along with alumni of IESE in Colombia, to a breakfast session featuring Ahmad Rahnema, Professor of Financial Management.

Bitcoin – a digital currency that acts as a medium of exchange on the Internet – was created nearly 10 years ago. At this session, we will analyse the advantages of bitcoin (low transaction cost, speed of payment and receipt, and elimination of financial intermediaries) as well as its drawbacks (virtual nature, lack of legal foundation and lack of support from any monetary authority).
