Event Details

The Blockchain Advanced course provides a more in-depth understanding of bitcoin and the blockchain and delves deeper into the concepts covered in the Bitcoin and Blockchain Beginner course. It is not essential for attendees to have attended the Bitcoin and Blockchain Beginner course, however, the Blockchain Advanced course does require attendees to already have a basic understanding of bitcoin and the blockchain.

The course goes further into Bitcoin mining, mining pools, Bitcoin transactions on the blockchain, software clients and front-ends, service providers that provide wallet services, APIs, payment gateways, explorer services and blockchain as a service.

The course covers many Bitcoin 2.0 topics such as smart contracts, smart property, side chains, decentralised services, world computers, and other exciting and innovative services and opportunities currently being used around the world.

    Annabel Dallamore, CEO Stock Shop

  • Starting a business is a daunting prospect, especially one that has a focus on an unproven and experimental technology. I have benefitted enormously from the support and wisdom I have received from AlphaCode during my time as a member.
