overview

Blockchain is an emerging technology that can radically improve banking, supply chain, and other transaction networks and can create new opportunities for innovation. Businesses contain many examples of networks of individuals and organizations that collaborate to create value and wealth. These networks work together in markets that exchange assets in the form of goods and services between the participants. Blockchain technology provides the basis for a dynamic shared ledger that can be applied to save time when recording transactions between parties, remove costs associated with intermediaries, and reduce risks of fraud and tampering. Business networks today are often inefficient because each participant in the network keeps records, or a ledger, of all transactions between all the parties that the business interacts with. This process is expensive because of duplication of effort and intermediaries adding costs for their services.

One solution to this problem is blockchain, which provides a shared ledger technology that allows any participant in the network to see the one system of record, or ledger. By using blockchain technology, businesses can benefit from a more efficient transfer of goods and services.

BLOCKCHAIN FOR BUSINESS HAS SEVERAL ADVANTAGES: • Saves time • Removes cost • Reduces risk • Increases trust

For example, for financial services network, a business network that runs on a blockchain can speed up transaction processes and audits. That in turn reduces costs and can lead to greater customer satisfaction. A business that runs a supply chain network can benefit from blockchain by reducing errors in shipments, have better tracking or materials, and reduce the risk of illicit tampering of records.

What if there were not only internet of information but also an internet of value. Some kind of vast global distributed ledger running on millions of computers and available to everybody. Where everything from money to music could be stored, moved, transacted, exchanged and managed… all without powerful intermediaries? This course will introduce the participants to the powerful structure of cryptocurrencies aided by the blockchain technology

Cryptocurrencies are digital money, while blockchain technology is a tool to secure transactions made digitally. Participants will learn the underlying knowledge of blockchain technology and the numerous applications from banking to internet and artificial intelligence. It will take the participants from the current concept of linear economy to the gig economy
