Module1-Intensive Training Module (3 days)
From Nick Szabo’s “bit gold” in 1998 to Ethereum’s Metropolis release in 2017, participants will learn a historical timeline of what we call today “Blockchain technology”. After attaining historical context for Blockchain, participants will then dive into a technical and business perspective of the technology fundamentals concepts and key features. In Day 1 participants will also start the journey of identifying the problem they are trying to solve, the technology fit and the business model.
During the 2nd day of the course, participants will dive into the different Blockchain platforms, their differences and when each platform can be used.
The participants will be then going through Blockchain decision frameworks and get into the weeds of what make a strong Blockchain business case and deriving insights to help them through the process of finalizing the vision for their next Blockchain solution.
A strong focus on user design will be acknowledged to assure that participants are creating viable Blockchain business plans that solve current/future use cases.
In Day 3, participants will be able to expand on their understanding of Blockchain business models through a critical review of curated white papers of existing projects to derive forces to implement in their project and pitfalls to avoid. This will allow students to immerse into a Blockchain professional mindset.
In addition, participants will review laws and regulations by deep diving into the details of different jurisdictions and going through Blockchain legal frameworks.
This will then lead the participants to begin working on their Blockchain business plan for the Capstone Project.
Module 2-Capstone Project (White Paper) Submission (7 days)
Your capstone project is a white paper designed for a use case of your choice. It is due one week after finishing the intensive course (Module1).
