By Equalizer Team
December 23, 2021

Flash Loan is a very powerful trading instrument that is unique to blockchain and enables the creation of new strategies, opportunities, businesses, and profits. At Equalizer, we decided to bring the Flash Loans, Flash Loan use-cases and, DeFi closer to our community, developers, traders, and platforms which can greatly benefit from this novel tool.

We announced the launching of the Equalizer Academy in November and in the meantime the team has worked on the agenda and the format for the Academy, which you will find below. The first meeting is scheduled for the end of January. We are now one step closer to making Flash Loans available to everyone!

Main topics covered for 3 months:

  • Block processing
  • EVM and Smart Contracts
  • Flash Loans
  • Arbitrage, Liquidation and Collateral swap
  • Trading arbitrage strategies
  • Trading automation or trading bots

Format:

  • Online meeting organized every two weeks to hold discussions or have hands-on workshops
  • Agenda and learning materials shared before the meeting
  • Open format meaning that everyone can propose new agenda items, topics or workshops
