As part of our commitment to AlphaCode, our Product Team is continually working hard on adding exciting new features, along with functional improvements.
Just getting started learning about blockchain and cryptocurrencies? We have partnered with The Field Institute to provide you with a unique experience to learn from experts in the field around the basics of blockchain and cryptocurrencies; explore practical applications of the technology through case studies and site visits and develop innovative ideas to apply blockchain technology in your organisation.
How will it benefit you:
Who should attend:
MODULE 1: Introduction to Blockchain Technology and Bitcoin
MODULE 2: Experiential Site Visits
MODULE 3: Applying Blockchain to Transform your Work and Business
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.
