Overview

Businesses across every industry are quickly catching onto the disruptive power of blockchain technology. Despite its early ties to cryptocurrencies, the benefits of blockchain reach far beyond Bitcoin. Blockchain provides a new way to build networks and store data across a protected hyperledger rather than stored in a single hub. The results are improved speed and efficiency as well as unhackable security, which is opening up unprecedented growth opportunities as businesses rush to get in on the ground floor. In Blockchain for Business, you’ll develop a working knowledge of blockchain basics while exploring current and potential benefits of integrating the technology into any business.

What you’ll walk away with:

  • Practical tools to implement blockchain technology in your business or career
  • A fundamental understanding of distributed ledger technologies and the global impact of blockchain disruption across a variety of industries
  • A whitepaper that will set the foundation of future blockchain development for your business
