Course Overview

TRUST – is the prevailing issue when money comes into picture. Hence, after many failed attempts at creating digital currency in the past, in 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto implemented a ledger model by using a technology called ‘Blockchain’. Thus, the Bitcoin ledger came into being. Other well-known blockchains like Ethereum and Ripple go beyond currency, such as bonds. Blockchain is a digital ledger of transactions, a distributed database that stores information in groups called ‘blocks’ and is shared across the entire network of computers on the blockchain. Each block stores a specific number of transactions based on its storage capacity, and when filled, the block is closed and linked to the previously filled block, forming a chain of blocks arranged chronologically.
