Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology launches Crypto Dashboard

Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology launches Crypto Dashboard Duncan is an award-winning editor with more than 20 years experience in journalism. Having launched his tech journalism career as editor of Arabian Computer News in Dubai, he has since edited an array of tech and digital marketing publications, including Computer Business Review, TechWeekEurope, Figaro Digital, Digit and Marketing Gazette.

The Crypto Dashboard, created by the Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology at Warwick Business School, has been launched today to revolutionise monitoring capabilities for various cryptocurrency assets, providing users with enhanced real-time insights and advanced analytics.

The platform, designed by leading academics that is open for everybody, is equipped with features such as market overviews of the overall crypto landscape, a Cryptocurrencies Information Component to list all available crypto cards, and an AI Investment Analyst.

The latter helps users form a report selecting the best Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and cryptos to build a strong portfolio, detailing the percentage of each asset at different risk/returns, as well as the expected performance of the portfolio under different scenarios.

Ram Gopal, director of the Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology at WBS, said: “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.”

The dashboard was launched  at the Centre’s DeFi and Digital Currencies Conference at the end of October 2023 at WBS London at The Shard, which brough together leading researchers and scholars from all over the world, including the University of Oxford, Seoul National University, UC Berkleyand University of Chicago, to discuss innovative theoretical and empirical research on DeFi and digital currencies.

Sessions included Liquidity on DEX and Automated Market Makers (AMM), Digital Money, Settlement and AMM design, CBDCs, yield farming and Decentralised Governance, with key speakers from the Bank of England and Bank of Canada appearing as part of the discussion on CBDCs.

Keynote speaker Zhiguo He, of the University of Chicago, also revealed the latest developments and research into China’s digital yuan as the People’s Republic of China continues to roll out the world’s first CBDC.

Olga Klein, assistant Prof of Finance at the Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology at WBS, said: “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.”
