What you'll learn in this blockchain class:

This is an intensive deep dive into blockchain and blockchain-related technologies applicable to tech and non-tech individuals. This is for individuals that are looking to understand the impact of blockchain to their careers or industries and want to formulate and understand potential risks and opportunities.

Blockchain is poised to be one of the most disruptive technologies to ever impact business. Cryptocurrencies notwithstanding, the breadth and depth of impact are breathtaking. This disruption is unfolding as we speak. Blockchain technologies are impacting industries and sectors globally and are poised to make sweeping changes - financials, banking, trading, supply chain, logistics, healthcare and more. Given this backdrop, a large number of executives and leaders are looking for ways to understand blockchain in a way that can help them identify risks and opportunities.

This is a "no fluff" course that delivers deep insights and knowledge and offers the chance for you to network with seasoned professionals and peers.

This course is specifically for people who wish to be technically savvy but don't want the "geek" speak - business executives and leaders that wish to forego the pie-in-the-sky hype and excessive technical jargon but instead get the facts that matter to make the decisions needed for short and long term.

Think of this course as management consulting minus the high fees. If you are looking to take a deep dive into the blockchain world and walk away with actionable next steps that can move your organization forward then this course is for you.

Who Should Attend
This course is an intensive deep dive into blockchain designed for non-technical people looking to develop a technical understanding of blockchain and its impact on their careers and industries. If you are an executive, manager, developer, devops, dev lead, entrepreneur, cryptocurrency or blockchain enthusiast and need structured and deep technical understanding of blockchain then this course is all you need.

The Chainhaus Certificate of Completion will be issued to all participants who attend and complete the course. The certificate and proof of it will be stored on blockchain, i.e. your certificate of completion will be registered on the Ethereum chain.

Course Materials Provided
Every student will be provided with a bound course book (approximately 100+ pages, 450 slides) and contact information for follow-up with the Professor for questions after the masterclass.
