About this Event
Welcome to blockchain 101. We will cover what the blockchain is on a fundamental level and how it works. This is not a class about bitcoin or investing, instead we will go over the building blocks that make up the blockchain
Topics covered in class include
1.What is cryptography and how do we secure messages?
2. What are the building blocks of bitcoin and all other cryptocurrencies
3. The evolution of encryption and how it plays a role in modern distributed system
4. A brief overview of proof-of-work and why bitcoin uses so much energy
5. What are these other coins everyone keeps talking about... and why does it even matter
This is an introductory course and does not cover investment advice or anything like it. The goal of this course is to clear the air of buzz words and gain an actual understanding of what the blockchain is and how it can be used.
