COURSE OVERVIEW 

The invention of the blockchain is democratising trust by creating open, distributed databases where consensus is the product of the decentralised participation of nodes anywhere on the Internet.

This workshop takes a high-level look at the concept of a blockchain, explores in detail how a blockchain works to provide the trust at the heart of a digital ledger in the case of a digital currency, considers the introduction of smart contracts as an innovation on the blockchain and explores a diverse set of real-world scenarios where blockchain and smart contract adoption is being explored. Finally, the leading commercially applicable blockchain platforms and possible applications thereof are explored.
