Center for the Study of
Blockchain and Financial Technology

Due to safety concerns related to the potential spread of COVID-19, the FinTech Center has suspended all face-to-face conferences and workshops. Visit our FinTech News and Programs page for upcoming events.

Developments in disruptive technologies such as Blockchain move fast.  Universities need to stay engaged by conducting breakthrough research to advance knowledge in this new technology and by updating  their curricula to prepare students for the rapid market changes.

The Center was established to provide an environment that promotes learning and in-depth understanding of blockchain technology and its impact on finance, business, industry, and government.

The Center offers programs, workshops, conferences, and seminars which bring together academic researchers, practitioners, corporate leaders, and policymakers.

In February 2019, Morgan State University received a multi-year grant from Ripple, a leading Silicon Valley technology firm. Morgan’s Center for the Study of Blockchain and Financial Technology (the FinTech Center) joins the global network of institutions known as  Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI).  This is a select group of universities engaged in a worldwide effort to develop specialized curriculum, accelerate academic research, and innovation in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and FinTech security.
