About the Course

This course is the definitive introduction to blockchain for both the developer and non-developer audience. Beyond the technology, this course will introduce you to some of the philosophy behind decentralization and why there is so much excitement around it. Join ConsenSys Academy and course instructor Nick Nelson in this rich-media introduction to the foundations of blockchain. During the first three modules, you'll be introduced to blockchain and the technology behind it. In module four, we'll go beyond bitcoin and delve deeper into a next-generation blockchain called Ethereum to introduce you to what modern blockchains can do. The use cases featured in the final module are drawn from among the businesses in ConsenSys portfolio. We believe we're uniquely positioned to present you with a valuable behind-the-scenes look at the people and companies working in this space to help give you a better understanding of the business side of blockchain. Together, we'll examine businesses use cases, hear from industry leaders, and give you the opportunity to develop and analyze a use case yourself. With this course, not only will you be the one who is able to explain blockchain to your colleagues, you'll be well on your way to making educated business decisions with your new, foundational understanding of the technology....

The only thing missing in this course is the practical implementation of blockchain with codes.

It was good but it showed bias towards Ethereum because it was provided by ConsenSys.

I audited the course.

The general information is very valuable. It gives you the bases for understanding Blockchain.

I didn't enjoy the use cases of the final chapter, though. They didn't really apply to my needs. The important thing here is to know possible uses and how they are being used in the real world now.

Great foundational overview but material is very outdated, I could not find when it was prepared/released because I had seen the date, i would not have invested time on it. A lot has happened since 2019 and the course does not cover it at all.

Though it provided a high level overview of blockchain, I think it was little over priced.

First modules are good, the last 2 are terrible.

Just theory no practical coding knowledge given. I am so happy I didn't spend so much money on this short theory session. This was just as good as any youtube tutorial on blockchain or a 10 page booklet that you can get for 500 bucks in india. Might be even cheaper outside of my country...

It was not just a learning course it was also part "infomercial" for the Ethyrium platform containing a lot of meaningless business technobabble. A bit of a disappointment.

By Jingyun F

OK for business persons and those who have zero background.

Useless for anyone that has at least a CS degree.
