The outcome of bootcamp is to provide individuals with a general overview of bitcoin and blockchain and give them the tools they need to be able to leverage the technology in their personal context as well as to enhance their organisation’s value and performance.

Attendees will learn more about what bitcoin is, its history, how to use bitcoin (storing, buying and selling) as well as how to send and receive bitcoin from one person to another. The course will also provide an overview of the blockchain: how transactions are stored on the blockchain, how mining works through consensus, the differences between permissioned and permissionless blockchains and why these differences are important.

Current use cases and opportunities of blockchain technology will be discussed such as smart contracts, payment rails, immutable ledger, proof of ownership, remittances and micro-transactions.

With this technical foundation, individuals will then embark on immersive, site visits to organisations already using blockchain successfully, to embed their learning and experience blockchain in a real-world setting, connecting to the emerging tech ecosystem. Reflecting on what they see and learn, individuals will be launched into a collaborative teaming process to innovate ways of applying blockchain in their professional context and gain practical tools and methods for driving digital innovation.
