Course Content

This introduction provides background information on Mona Tiesler, a venture capital investor who will be discussing the concept of tokenomics.
In Chapter 1, Mona explains that a crypto token is a virtual currency or denomination of a cryptocurrency that represents a tradable asset on its own blockchain.
In Chapter 2, Mona defines tokenomics as the factors that impact a token’s value and usage, including its creation and distribution, supply and demand, incentive mechanisms, and burn schedules. She also distinguishes between minting and mining, explaining that minting is the process of generating new coins through the proof of stake consensus mechanism, while mining is the proof of work consensus mechanism that is more energy intensive.
In Chapter 3, Mona discusses the practicalities of minting and burning tokens. She explains that minting adds new tokens to circulation, while burning removes tokens from circulation indefinitely, reducing the supply and potentially affecting the price of the token.
The conclusion summaries the main points covered in the discussion of tokenomics, including the definitions of crypto tokens and tokenomics, the differences between minting and mining, and the processes of minting and burning tokens.

Latest THINK Courses


CFTE’s brand new online learning platform! THINK produces and delivers dozens of bite-sized courses which will allow you to get a good understanding and be constantly updated about everything concerning Fintech!

Disruptive technologies and innovations don’t come on their own. They bring significant transformations and challenges both in terms of culture, people, jobs, environment and governance. Therefore we believe these topics can’t be separated from one another. 

The courses offered on THINK have slightly different approaches to the topics. You’ll find evergreen foundational-level courses which will help you get a good understanding without any prior knowledge, but you’ll also find courses that explore the players in the respective ecosystems, courses that explore the regulations of a certain field and even courses that dive deep into specific companies’ way of operating!

THINK is meant for all those professionals who want to be kept up to date with the latest developments in these fields, but don’t necessarily have the time to go through countless articles or newspapers.

Technology is deeply transforming the way financial institutions do business and manage operations. Understanding these shifts will allow you to benefit from them, and not miss out on any potential opportunities for you and your organisation.

Users and customers nowadays are more aware than ever about the environmental and social impact of their choices, as a consequence companies are putting more attention on these topics even at the cost of reduced financial performances.

Digital Assets, Blockchain, Decentralisation and Web3 are still in a very early stage. They may reshape and revolutionise our current business models, therefore we believe it’s worth  paying special attention to the innovations they bring to the table.

Understanding how technology works, its potential and its limitations is essential to properly embrace it and leverage it. Even non-technical professionals need to get a comprehensive understanding of these tools, as they will have an increasingly important role in our lives.
