Description

Course Update: November 2019

The problem with learning about blockchain is that there is too much information but not enough structured knowledge. Oftentimes for the uninitiated, most of this information may be indecipherable. And it is becoming a big problem as professionals from a variety of industries are looking to understanding the technology and explore the opportunities for their sector. In, collaboration with Antony Lewis (author of The Basics of Bitcoins and Blockchains) we have developed the ultimate commercial education course for professionals and business students to learn all the fundamentals they need in relation to blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and ICOs in an accessible, logical and structured manner. The course contains 10+ hours of materials including explainer videos, lecture notes, articles and learning summaries and quiz assessments at the end of each of the 8 core lessons.

About the Author
