Blockchain Fundamentals


Blockchain is the distributed and decentralized database technology behind this cryptocurrency. This course explores the fundamentals of the public, transparent, secure, immutable and distributed database called blockchain. Blockchains can be used to record and transfer any digital asset not just currency. This course will introduce students to the workings and applications of this potentially disruptive technology. Its potential impact on financial services, government, banking, contracting and identity management will be discussed.

Students will be able to achieve the following learning objectives at the completion of the course.
• Be able to explain what is blockchain.
• Be able to explain why we need blockchain. What is the real world problem(s) that blockchain is trying to solve.
• Understand and describe how blockchain works.
• Explain the underlying technology of transactions, blocks, proof-of-work, and consensus building.
• How does blockchain exist in the public domain (decentralized, distributed) yet maintain transparency, privacy, anonymity, security, immutability, history.
• How is blockchain incentivized without any central controlling or trusted agency.
• Design and implement new ways of using blockchain for applications other than cryptocurrency.
• Explore platforms such as Ethereum to build applications on blockchain.
