Introduction to Blockchain

  • Introduction to Blockchain

Our world is becoming truly digital. We are entering the next generation of the information highway: all data is available, lineage-ready, and write-once and read-many. We have the ability to get to raw data as needed, on demand, all of which introduces a few new terms. One of them is blockchain. The term has been intriguing and challenging the data industry and its ability to provide answers to all the questions blockchain has raised. Obviously, there are a few wrinkles that need to be ironed and understood to make this concept become adopted and useful.

In this course we will discuss the concept of blockchain, the concept of cryptocurrency, smart contracts, and more. Beyond the technology, this course will introduce you to the philosophy behind decentralization and why there is so much excitement around it. During the first three modules, you'll be introduced to blockchain and the technology behind it. In Module Four, we'll go beyond bitcoin and delve deeper into a next-generation blockchain to introduce you to what modern blockchains can do. The use cases featured in the final module are drawn from real businesses.
