Overall, a fantastic way to learn about blockchain and its specifics." - Anoush B.

Cem does an outstanding job of explaining each concept, providing relevant metaphors and examples, and repeating concepts just enough so that you retain what you have learned." - Tamara D.


★★★★★ "The way he teaches is amazing, he makes sure that topics of previous lecture are revised in next lecture and concepts are crystal clear.

The course is amazing for beginners." - Ishani K.

Why should you study blockchain?


The demand for blockchain-related jobs are the fastest growing in today’s labor market and have seen a growth rate of more than 35,000% year on year. The rate is incredible and certainly blockchain has become the hottest skill in the market. Companies such as IBM, Deloitte, Accenture and Mastercard are finally figuring out how important blockchain technology will be in the future and thus they are looking for successful experts that will carry out the transition. The salary of these blockchain experts is around $150,000-$200,000 annually.


But how can one become a blockchain expert? Blockchain is not something you can study in school and there isn’t a major for it except for a few visionary universities in the world. That’s why until now, people like me had to teach themselves, trying to acquire knowledge through any means possible. It wasn’t easy… unfortunately… but now, I assure you that I have prepared the most comprehensive course on blockchain out there.


Especially if you want to specialize in blockchain and continue your career in various other roles such as project manager, product manager, developer, advisor/consultant, etc. this course will yield amazing results for you in the shortest time possible!


This course is the first module of a three-module course series that involves enormous amount of information in video, quizzes and additional resources that covers all aspects of blockchain from beginner to advanced level.


This first module of the course series is perfect for beginners in blockchain. If you are a beginner, by taking this module, you will get a solid foundation on various concepts of blockchain learning so much new information such as what Bitcoin and blockchain are, how they work, what wallets, exchanges and mining are. In addition, you will get to practice many things with me, such as opening up an exchange account, creating and using a wallet, buying, selling and transferring cryptocurrencies, mining cryptocurrencies, and much more! You can check the ‘What will I learn?’ section for a full list of contents covered in this module.


 

Notice


This module is for beginners and will NOT make you an advanced level expert upon completion. Instead, it gives you the right start, providing the best fundamental knowledge and rewarding you with BE I level certificate (first level of three knowledge levels - beginner, intermediate, advanced). If you are at intermediate or advanced level, you should go for Become a Blockchain Expert II (BE II) and Become a Blockchain Expert III (BE III) modules of the course. However, they are currently in preparation phase and an announcement will be made when they are ready.


Buying this module will NOT grant you free access to the next two modules for intermediate and advanced level students. You will have to separately buy those modules if you want the complete course experience. This module is the first of the three. If you are a beginner and think that the first module is enough for you, of course you don’t have to buy the rest of the modules which are for intermediate and advanced levels. By buying this module, you will still be eligible for BE I (beginner level) certificate.


This course does NOT focus on programming. If you want to become a blockchain developer or smart contract developer, you should know that this course will only teach you the fundamentals of blockchain and will certainly help you in your journey but it will not be sufficient. In other words, you will have to take another course in addition to this, which should be one focusing on teaching programming. If you want to become a developer, I would still recommend you to take this course to learn the fundamentals of blockchain and then to take another course prepared specifically for developers.
