Foundations of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

Foundations of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

Are you interested in learning about the exciting world of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency?

HCCC Continuing Education presents a program that strives to prepare students for our coming future by utilizing blockchain technology to secure everything from tax payments, voting, medical records, and, most importantly, currency transactions in our digital society. We’ll explain the background of the technology and details about what it does, how it works, where it’s applicable (and where it’s not), and when we can anticipate greater use.  

Outcomes: 
You’ll be able to explain blockchain technology, what a blockchain is, and describe the various uses and methods encompassing the technology itself. You will also be able to discuss and critique current applications and technology such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Distributed Ledger Technology in general. The class encourages students to practice getting comfortable with the technology outside of class. A coding and technology background will be a competitive advantage but not a requirement.

Topics covered:

  • What is Blockchain Technology and Decentralization
  • Blockchain Networks and Protocols
  • Blockchain transaction methods and ownership
  • All about Bitcoin
  • Cryptocurrency Trading: What to Trade
  • And much more
