The course, titled Blockchain Mastery: From Fundamentals to Advanced Corporate Solutions, will offer participants a holistic overview of the digital assets landscape and their implications for both businesses and investors. Students will explore topics ranging from the inception of Bitcoin to unpacking blockchain consensus mechanisms, decentralized finance (DeFi), tokenomics, and smart contracts.
