Getting into Blockchain is hard!
Blockchain jumps at you from almost every FinTech publication, economic newspaper, industry blog and even mainstream news.
The Hype is massive, but few commentators, journalists and analysts actually understand blockchain technology in depth. The conversation is, in most places, riddled with fundamental misconceptions.
So, where can you start?
How does it work? What is a smart contract? Why is everyone so excited about DAOs? And what does all of this have to do with cryptocurrencies?
We have been spending a lot of time and effort to develop an in-depth course for technical decision makers and CTOs.
About This Course
This online course teaches technical decision makers and CTOs the basics of blockchain technology.
This course is aimed at experienced technical stakeholders, introducing everything needed to understand the technology, smart contracts and both technical and social frameworks relating to the technology.
The course goes into the underlying theory of blockchain, covers Bitcoin, Ethereum and Hyperledger in depth and provides an overview of many other protocols both in public and managed networks.
Support & Interaction
For the duration of the course participants will be provided with a high level support by instructors. Participants are able to collaborate and exchange experiences within their learning group through different communication channels on slack.
B9lab awards certificates to participants who show very strong ability and understanding during the course. The pass mark is fairly high and requires an average of 80% or more. Successful participants receive a certificate that is verified on the Ethereum platform.
You can see how that looks like in the B9lab Certificate Center.
Exam and Timeline
At the end of the course, participants can decide on the date of their exam within a 8 week window.
