The Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology at Warwick Business School launches the Crypto Dashboard at the DeFi and Digital Currencies Conference, Warwick Business School, London. Designed by leading academics, this open platform is equipped with features to provide users with valuable insights, market overviews, and AI-powered investment analysis.
The Crypto Dashboard made its official debut at the Centre’s DeFi and Digital Currencies Conference, held from October 27th to 28th at WBS London, located in the iconic Shard building. The conference united leading researchers and scholars from around the world, including institutions like the University of Oxford, Seoul National University, UC Berkeley, and the University of Chicago.
The Crypto Dashboard is a comprehensive tool for tracking cryptocurrencies. It offers users market overviews, giving them a panoramic view of the ever-evolving crypto landscape. Whether you’re a seasoned trader or just starting your crypto journey, this platform caters to all, making it easy to explore and deepen your understanding of cryptocurrencies.
AI Investment Analyst: Your Smart Crypto Companion
One of the standout features of the Crypto Dashboard is the AI Investment Analyst. This intelligent tool assists users in crafting a personalized investment portfolio by selecting the best Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and cryptocurrencies. It provides insights into the percentage allocation of assets based on different risk and return scenarios. Users can even assess the expected performance of their portfolio under varying conditions, offering a valuable tool for both experienced and novice investors.
Ram Gopal, Director of the Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology at WBS, expressed his enthusiasm about this innovative platform.
“As the prominence of crypto advances, we are excited to launch our user-friendly platform catering to crypto enthusiasts as well as novices, enabling all to explore and deepen their understanding of crypto and its landscape.
For example, within the advanced analytics feature we have the replication function, which allows users to construct a portfolio of crypto assets that replicate a chosen target. This, for example, can be used to figure out how to set up a portfolio that mimics the inflation”, he said.
Unveiling at the DeFi and Digital Currencies Conference
The event featured a diverse range of sessions covering topics such as liquidity on decentralized exchanges (DEX), automated market makers (AMM), digital money, settlement, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), yield farming, and decentralized governance. Distinguished speakers from institutions like the Bank of England and the Bank of Canada shared insights during the discussions on CBDCs.
Keynote speaker Zhiguo He, hailing from the University of Chicago, unveiled the latest developments and research on China’s digital yuan (also known as the e-CNY). As the People’s Republic of China continues to roll out the world’s first central bank digital currency (CBDC), attendees had the unique opportunity to gain insights into the groundbreaking advancements in digital currency.
Olga Klein, Assistant Professor of Finance at the Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology at WBS, emphasised:
“Academics and research hubs play a significant role in developing cutting-edge innovation, and can help enhance the direction that the financial sector goes in, bettering services for all involved.
Having the opportunity to receive real-time feedback on research and products can drive further conversations and explorations, highlighting the importance of knowledge sharing at events such as these.
The conference will continue to build the growing Gillmore Centre research community, stimulating debate and facilitating future research on emerging financial technologies, practices, and regulation.”
