What’s Happening in the Cryptocurrency Markets?



Prof. Yermack will provide a brief introduction and overview of the cryptocurrency markets, including their history and growth. He will then look in detail at the difficult year of 2022, in which the crypto markets lost about 70% of their market value and many prominent organizations became embroiled in defaults, scandals, and bankruptcies.

His talk will connect the problems in the cryptocurrency markets with age-old financial problems such as excessive leverage, poor governance, and inadequate transparency. 

Time will be reserved for audience Q-and-A as well.

The speaker:

David Yermack is the Albert Fingerhut Professor of Finance and Business
Transformation and Chair of the Finance Department at New York University’s Stern School of Business, where he has been a member of the faculty since 1994. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Law at the NYU School of Law, Director of the NYU Pollack Center for Law and Business, and a Research Associate of the NBER Law and Economics program. In 2014 Prof. Yermack began teaching a full semester course at NYU on Digital Currency and Blockchains with his Law School colleague Prof. Geoffrey Miller. The course was the first in the world on this topic taught at a major research university, and it now draws more than 200 students annually.

Prof. Yermack has presented his FinTech research at numerous international universities and regulatory bodies including the United Nations, Bank for International Settlements, OECD, U.S. Treasury Department, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Inter-American Development Bank, World Bank, and the U.S. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
