This course provides students with an introduction to cryptocurrency and blockchain. Blockchain technology provides for a distributed or shared record or ledger of digital events that is verifiable, while keeping confidential details about the underlying transaction and the parties involved private. The distributed nature of blockchain challenges the notion of a central trusted authority that is inherent in online transactions today with attributes that some say democratizes the marketplace. Learn how cryptocurrency and blockchain work and explore uses and potential.
