About this Course

Introduced as the technology underlying bitcoin and other crypto currencies, blockchain provides an alternate architecture to build applications. The technology has many attractive features, such as decentralization, fault tolerance, immutability and digital identity verification and is used in many fields, such as finance, banking, supply-chain management, security and healthcare.

In this course, you’ll create your own blockchain proposal and see it through conception, design, development, testing and integration. Learn how to distinguish use cases to build a project in the industry, geographic region and blockchain stack of your choice. Discover the limits to the applications and the underlying regulations that govern these technologies. You’ll wrap up the course with a presentation on your entrepreneurial project and feedback from local investors.
