Description

Have you been hearing Bitcoin getting mentioned more and more in the news lately? Has it come up in conversation but you werent able to comment on it with confidence? This course aims to build up an understanding of Bitcoin from a First Principles standpoint. 

We start off with a journey through the History of Money to gain a solid understanding of what Money is. From this, we will recognize the 5 Properties of Good Money and examine Gold as a case study. Then we dive into Bitcoin, and after an introduction into the inner workings of Bitcoin we compare it to Gold to see how it is superior in every way. 

Finally we look at the future of Bitcoin and lay out some price targets for the coming Decade. 

You will learn

I am sure you will still have some questions or concerns after going through the course. What I challenge you to do as the class project is to come up with the most convincing argument against Bitcoin and detail it in the comment section.
