The course won't make you a Bitcoin expert overnight, but if you have been wondering about Bitcoin, the questions I prepared for this interview aimed to give you a very well rounded view of Bitcoin so that you can think about it intelligently, and be able to take your first steps in the Bitcoin world with more confidence.
