The EFFAS Digital Assets and MiCA (DiAM) is an international professional certification granted by the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies (EFFAS). It provides and evaluates knowledge in assets based on blockchain technology and the regulatory framework to enable holders to provide clear           investment information and advice. It is structured in 5 modules:

Blockchain Technology; what it is and how it is linked to the crypto world

Modul 1


Blockchain technology has revolutionised the financial industry through a new way of managing assets and money. With this technology, transactions can be automated without the need for an intermediary to act as a trusted third party, as the technology itself performs this function.

Typologies of crypto assets and basic regulation that affects them

Modul 2


The diversity of new digital assets and their potential use redefines the role of banks and investment firms and affects supervisors, regulators and governments, all of whom are facing a far-reaching disruptive process. It is therefore necessary to understand the implications of the regulation for day-to-day business and for investment and financing decisions.

Products and services in the world of crypto assets

Modul 3


The financial industry has begun to increasingly embrace both novel crypto-assets (cryptocurrencies) and the use of the technology on traditional assets that are represented by the technology. This process, called tokenisation, is extremely important to understand the transformation of the traditional financial industry and the potential offered by blockchain and DLT technology.

Regulation and money laundering: the MICA effect and the AML5

Modul 4


Regulation is undoubtedly one of the most important elements, if not the most important, within the financial industry. Several recent developments in the industry, such as PSD2 or MiFID2, have been born out of regulation, generating important changes and adaptations in the industry.

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and new trends and investments

Modul 5


Traditional financial assets are created to respond to a series of economic needs: company financing through shares and bonds, liquidity deposits for private investors with a low risk profile, investment funds for the more general client, and derivatives for hedging. In the same way, crypto-assets make it possible to create, in an innovative way, various services that can cover these types of needs.
