Analyst and professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Stern School of Business, Shaul Levinson, told The Jerusalem Times that the “high stakes” of investment in the finance sector were often “a lot of people who are dealing directly with investors, and they are trying to do business, not just profit.”
“If you are not dealing with the right people, you can become a victim,” Levinson added.
“You have to be careful that you don’t do something you will regret later.”
The rise of blockchain has been a catalyst for many of the investment trends mentioned above, according to Levinson.
“Blockchain is the most important thing since it can allow you to deal with people with a different mentality,” he said.
“It makes it possible for people to deal more directly with people, and it can be used for a lot of things.”
I am not talking about crypto here, but the blockchain-based derivatives.
The way that people are able to do derivatives is much easier than what was possible with the old methods.
It allows for the market to be more transparent and the markets to be better regulated, and there is much more transparency.
“According to Levison, the rise of the blockchain will be one of the “biggest surprises of the next few years.””
Levinson is optimistic about the impact of blockchain technology in the financial sector.””
There are a lot more transactions in the system, and the amount of money that is traded is much greater than it was.”
Levinson is optimistic about the impact of blockchain technology in the financial sector.
“It has the potential to be a revolution in finance, and I believe it is the only revolution in the industry, because it is more decentralized, it is easier to access and it is much cheaper.
It is a revolutionary innovation that will change everything in finance.”
Ahead of the first big test of the technology on Wednesday, Levinson said that the firm was expecting a huge rise in trading volume on the market, and said it was “pretty certain” that it would not be long before the financial system was “more resilient than it has ever been.”
“I believe that the price will go up very fast,” he added.
“There is no reason why it should not be, and that is a good thing.
It will be a huge shock.
I believe that it will be the biggest innovation in finance for the next decade.”
