TOP REVIEWS FROM CRYPTOCURRENCY AND BLOCKCHAIN: AN INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL CURRENCIES
a very nice course!! grabs interest of students but it is from the economics point if view ,there should have been more of computer science stuff too.overall a nice course.
Very interesting course for the beginner. I do not have any fundamental knowledge about finance, but this course is easy to understand. All professors and lecturer speaks clearly.
Good class to get a general, high-level overview of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain. Lectures are easy to follow and the notes/slides are helpful. The guest speakers in Week4 are interesting.
Really enjoyed the last module by Sarah Hammer. 2nd Module was a little tech heavy. I would suggest more visual information to help keep the content more dynamic.
