COURSE

In a Nutshell

An introductory course for Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. The first step to your journey in Digital Currency learning.

Overview

Blockchain is one of the most disruptive technologies, placed along with advanced and emerging technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, quantum computing, biotechnology, the internet of things, the industrial internet of things, fifth-generation wireless technologies, 3D printing, and fully autonomous vehicles. Blockchain or decentralised consensus is finding a wide range of applications, which is adding immense value and efficiency to business processes and in certain cases, changing the way of doing business entirely.
Popularly associated with cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin, in particular, it’s imperative that future managers understand this technology in its true strength and realise the wider range of use cases than just efficient payments solutions, which essentially is Digital Currency.
This ‘Introduction to Blockchain’ course has been designed to explain what the technology is and how it works at a functional as well as at an industrial application level. You will learn how the technology can be used to lend efficiency to business operations and processes using a decentralised consensus over a distributed ledger.

Comprising of four lectures, this course requires no previous knowledge of or experience with Blockchain.
