Want to know more about blockchains?

We have seven free courses that should give you an idea of the tech

B9lab Academy is moving in a new direction

We no longer offer expert-lead, paid courses to individual developers. If you currently have a subscription, you can still login as normal.

We now work directly with groups who want to provide training and educational materials for free to developers, like our Blockstars initiatives.

How our free courses work

If you are looking for a non-technical introduction to blockchain we recommend you jump in with "Blockchain Essentials"

If you want a technical introduction to a particular protocol we recommend one of the six protocol courses; three tasters, and three full courses through developer portals.

Each course is designed to give you a feeling for the protocol

100% online learning, self paced and self directed

Ideally you should have a basic understanding of computer principles and an elementary understanding of networks and databases

Go in depth with a full course

Dive in with these free comprehensive courses developed in association with members of their ecosystem. Each portal contains a stand alone course that will take you from blockchain newbie to building with the tech. You can follow the course all the way through, or dip in and out as you discover what interests you.

Free tasters to help you navigate the blockchain space

Use these free introduction tasters to find out more about blockchains and their uses. These tasters should give you enough information to understand the basics of the technology and if you want to learn more.

We now work directly with groups who want to provide free educational content

B9lab was one of the first to come out with a quality online training course for aspiring Ethereum developers back in 2016. Today, our global learning community has grown to more than 18,000 students in 160 countries.
