About the Course

Blockchain is an emerging and highly disruptive technology that is poorly understood. In this course you will learn what blockchain is and how it can create value by tokenization in cryptocurrencies and in many other practical applications. The applications include: stablecoins (like Facebook’s Libra and JP Morgan’s JPMCoin), machine to machine payments, identity protection, supply chain management (Walmart, Maersk, IBM), secure voting, distributed exchanges, decentralized finance, property transfers, central bank fiat crypto (e.g., Fedcoin and China’s digital Renminbi), dispensing prescription drugs, private records, intellectual property, financial reporting, and media and advertising, to name a few. The goals of the course are to: (i) provide an advanced understanding of the various blockchain technologies; (ii) determine the specific business situations where blockchain technology can be deployed to solve important problems; (iii) select the specific blockchain technology that has the best chance of success for a particular problem; and (iv) detail the risks presented by this new technology....

Prof. Harvey offered his deep personal experience and a very positive motivation to detail the blockchain backbones, existing coins and tokens and their business potential.

This is a great course. The material is clear and in-depth. Cam Harvey is an excellent tutor. The weak point is the quizzes. For some questions, the wording is unclear. For many answers you have to guess what the person who came up with the questions was thinking. Although, that should not demotivate anyone from taking this course because, as I said before, the material is quite excellent.

It definitely triggered some interest in a new (for me) area!

Some of the explanations could have been a bit clearer, but it is still worthwhile to take the course.

What I did miss is the interaction in the discussion forums. Which is a contributing factor for not going for the full specialization, although most of it because I have previous experience...

The course provides a great insight into the Blockchain technology and different popular blockchain technologies available in the market. It also provides an overview on how the world will evolve with the increased use of Blockchain and scope for different business models etc. It is good course to venture into blockcha

As the title says it should have more emphasized on the business and doing it real world , but it is still a good course to understand the blockchain.
