Through multiple hands-on activities, we will explore and highlight the many concepts that make blockchain technology possible. The course has multiple real world examples and contrasts between specific blockchain implementations, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Stellar, with the goal of demystifying the concept of blockchain technology and providing a relevant, applicable understanding.

This course is relevant to working professionals in domains such as logistics, education and finance, for whom blockchain technology is already threatening to disrupt their industries. Participants will be well-positioned to debate the pros and cons of different blockchain implementations and contribute to any blockchain-related projects and discussions.
