Exciting, right? Can you imagine capturing just a percentage of this money with a new business model? Or finding a job to lead a new blockchain business unit within a larger corporation? Well, that is the main objective of this course: to explain to you in a very practical way the technical principles of Blockchain, along with the necessary methodology to create successful business models based on this technology.
To do so, in the first part of the course, we will give you a detailed understanding of Blockchain technology covering the following key topics: public key cryptography, hash functions, blocks, the Chain and peer to peer networks.
