Description

Bitcoin. Ethereum. Hyperledger. With all the cryptocurrency buzzwords flying around, it is hard to get to the core of all of these technologies. The essential piece that serves as the underlying mechanism of all these technologies is blockchain. Blockchain is a decentralized, trustless, distributed ledger technology that was popuarlized by the Bitcoin global cryptocurrency platform.
This course will cover the fundamentals of blockchain technology, including the three core layers of a blockchain and the three types of blockchains.

This course is appropriate for technologists who are interested in the technology and business owners who are looking to understand the technology on a deeper level.

Who is the target audience?
  • This blockchain course is meant for anyone who has an interest in blockchain or cryptocurrency technology and who want to know more about the underlying mechanisms that make up a blockchain. Although there will be some references to cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, this course is about blockchain technology on a low level. As such, this course may not be for those who are wanting to do a deep dive into cryptocurrencies specifically.
