While the media abounds with stories about the boom and bust cycle of bitcoin, most people don’t understand the basic principles of how cryptoassets like bitcoin work. This class fully explains the technologies “under the hood”, as well as relevant tools and the crypto ecosystem. The course covers coin types, mining, forking, wallets, cryptography, blockchain and its growing adoption through the economy, transactions, exchanges, government regulation, security, taxation, coin valuation criteria, and much more. While the course avoids investment recommendations, it provides people with the conceptual and detailed knowledge required to understand how cryptoassets and blockchain might affect them personally, as well as influence society at large.
