Blockchain technology is geared to disrupt major industries in the years to come. There are already 1000+ large multinational corporations such as IBM, Microsoft and Oracle (just to name a few) who have begun pilot projects creating business applications on blockchain. This nascent technology is going to make many of our everyday activities more secure and convenient. Blockchain provides the essentials of what is called a ‘shared ledger’ which if applied correctly, can save businesses time and costs and inadvertently cut-off the middleman.

This course provides an in-depth view of what blockchain technology is, how it works and what it can truly do for a business. Participants will go through key use cases and see first hand with live case studies and examples.
