TOP REVIEWS FROM BITCOIN AND CRYPTOCURRENCY TECHNOLOGIES
The theory part is quite good: you get a rather strong in-detail understanding of the technology behind Bitcoin. The Java programming assignments, however, are an organizational disaster.
Very good course - I finally fully understand how bitcoins work!
It would be nice to see this course updated with the recent developments in cryptocurrencies (smart contracts, Ethereum etc.)
Loved this course! It was very thorough. However I think assignments could have been made more clearer as it was often hard to figure out what needed to be done without checking discussion forums.
I enjoyed the lecture series. As many have stated previously, I do think that the assignments assume a sizeable amount of technological knowledge that is not necessarily cohesive with the lectures.
