Introduction to Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency
The term blockchain has become synonymous with a world of electronic financial speculation with its own dedicated currency. Most people think immediately of the bitcoin as a new future global unit of currency and fear that this may even take over from our existing real coinage. However, there is much more to the concept, with the value of blockchain lying more in its value as a secure and rapid process for maintaining valid records of ownership through transaction information.
This course introduces the learner to the concept of blockchain and describes how its rapid development has revolutionised the way that data can be stored without the need for a central authority. It explains in simple terms how blockchain operates and provides a range of examples of its potential use throughout the business world.
