About Fundamentals of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

This course is an attempt to ‘demystify’ Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. The goal is to provide a practical, easy and interesting approach to understanding Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. Based on the widespread notion that Blockchain is a high-technology area and should be reserved for technology experts and mathematical geniuses, this course provides a simple alternative route to appreciate the immense potential of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency, of which Bitcoin is a focal area. This is because Bitcoin is the most popular offshoot of the blockchain technology. Hence, this course is first designed to introduce students to Blockchain as a technology, and then to Bitcoin as an application of the Blockchain technology to facilitate the exchange of values.

At the end of the course, students will be well equipped with the requisite knowledge to navigate the high-technology terrain of Bitcoin and other alternative coins.
