The curriculum covers how the system was developed only in 2008 as a response to the global financial crisis. By releasing the code to the world as open-source, the initial developer has allowed many minds to take the concepts further, and the systems behind bitcoin are very likely to underpin many future applications, like the registration of domain names and transfer of sensitive information.
