Decent course

Some concept have been glossed over and not explained in sufficient detail like the sort of puzzles the miners solve and not enough visuals to show how this works. Also some words should be defined beforehand such as nodes, decentralised network, with some corresponding graphics. The last module was read with a rather annoying voice, quite unbearable to listen to, as if there was fire somewhere.

Thanks a lot for this course. Kindly expand on module 2 and make it simpler. This module is highly abstract so supplement it with more videos or reading material. Please have the instructor in a smaller window at the corner so that we can see the slides simultaneously.
