About this course:

Blockchain has distinguished itself as the technical architecture of choice for a great many projects boldly attempting to solve critically important and meaningful problems. The next iteration of the internet has blockchain as its bedrock, and building an understanding of the precepts of this often opaque technology positions professionals with an interest in tech to pivot into this high-demand space and supercharge their career potential. Join us in this series where we dive into important blockchain topics (NFT's, cryptocurrency, tokens, Bitcoin, Ethereum, hashing, smart contracts, Web3, Metaverse, etc.) that deliver substantive understanding about blockchain as the transformative tool poised to continually disrupt industries in the States and abroad.
