If one night you went to sleep and woke up in the deep of the jungle the next day, you will feel lost not knowing where you are and how to get out of it. If you were a bird and managed to fly above the canopy of trees and see where is the direction to home, you most likely will be able to get out of the maze.
This course will bring you to see the whole picture in a bird-eye view. A more holistic view of the blockchain mechanism will help you make a better decision investing in blockchains, cryptocurrencies, or NFTs.
This course will be grouped into 3 main sections:
•Look into the motivation of the conceptualization of the blockchain. Understanding the reasons it was built and the methods applied will help you in applying and innovating the technology.
•Explain important blockchain concepts in layman terms and relate them to things that happen in our daily life.
•Understand the problems the blockchain solved. Explore how cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) solve problems.
•Explore some of the use cases.
•Busting blockchain myths.
•Understand the challenges the blockchains are facing.
•Explore the potential use cases.
Interested in further exploring the potential of blockchain? I have prepared some suggested readings or research areas for you to consider.
You will be introduced to important concepts in the blockchain. At the end of some lectures, there will be suggestions for further readings and explorations.
You are welcome to participate in the discussion and ask questions to clarify any point.
