Practical Bitcoin for the Student away from home – a guide for beginners.
This course will take the beginner through the basics of the new world of bitcoin cryptocurrency.
Sophisticated concepts are dealt with in a light-hearted way, but the student will be able to gain practical benefit almost immediately.
The curriculum covers how the system was developed only in 2008 as a response to the global financial crisis. By releasing the code to the world as open-source, the initial developer has allowed many minds to take the concepts further, and the systems behind bitcoin are very likely to underpin many future applications, like the registration of domain names and transfer of sensitive information.
