About this course: To really understand what is special about Bitcoin, we need to understand how it works at a technical level. We’ll address the important questions about Bitcoin, such as:

How does Bitcoin work? What makes Bitcoin different? How secure are your Bitcoins? How anonymous are Bitcoin users? What determines the price of Bitcoins? Can cryptocurrencies be regulated? What might the future hold?

After this course, you’ll know everything you need to be able to separate fact from fiction when reading claims about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. You’ll have the conceptual foundations you need to engineer secure software that interacts with the Bitcoin network. And you’ll be able to integrate ideas from Bitcoin in your own projects.

Blockchain is an emerging technology that can radically improve banking, supply chain, and other transaction networks and can create new opportunities for innovation. Businesses contain many examples of networks of individuals and organizations that collaborate to create value and wealth. These networks work together in markets that exchange assets in the form of goods and services between the participants.

Blockchain technology provides the basis for a dynamic shared ledger that can be applied to save time when recording transactions between parties, remove costs associated with intermediaries, and reduce risks of fraud and tampering.

The video lectures and lab in this course help you learn about blockchain for business and explore key use cases that demonstrate how the technology adds value.

Note: This course does not cover cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, in detail.

We offer a geo-located pricing model so that students in Bangladesh can access the same course offered in Boston for a cost relative to the economy they live in. We work with other tertiary institutions and governments around the world to subsidize course fees and offer scholarships to promising students in emerging economies. Our incentivized learning model gives students the chance to ‘earn while they learn’, with high achieving students able to reduce the cost of their digital technology learning to zero.
