About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
In the final course, learners will synthesize their learning into a project deliverable called a Blockchain Opportunity Analysis. Here, learners will identify a specific need or problem in global commerce that could potentially be solved using blockchain or Web3 technologies. Learners will then investigate possible solutions to this problem, including the business model considerations required to bring this idea to fruition. As an outcome of this Specialization, learners will walk away with a consolidated, peer-reviewed Blockchain Opportunity Analysis, which can be used to pitch their idea to their organization or to potential investors.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
