Bitcoin reinvents the concept of money. Although the
concept by itself may have some limitations, it has opened the door for
innovation in an alternative financial system. We want to bring this concept to
young students and entrepreneurs and encourage them to pursue this field.

bitcoin from a technology perspective. But few explore the economic
implications of cryptocurrencies. This one does. It also offers you the
following: 

  1. Theoretical
    understanding of the bitcoin/blockchain technology from a technical and
    economic perspective.
  2. Overview of the legal
    landscape
  3. Introduction to the
    opportunities this technology represents for entrepreneurs.
  4. Access to a Blockchain
    community.
  5. Training on how to transact
    your own bitcoins and how to regard bitcoin as an asset class.

Thus, the class will be fun, informative, practical,
thought provoking and shall give you access to new resources.

Blockchain cryptocurrency course 101 for absolute beginners

A complete guide to anyone who wants to really understand what this rave is all about and take advantage

In 2009 : 1 bitcoin = 2 cents
In 2017 January : 1 bitcoin = $700

Hold on, 
In 2017 October (same year) :
1 Bitcoin = $6000

Which means if you had invested 2 cents in 2009, your 2 cents will be now worth $6,000.
Also if you invested $700 in January 2017, by October  your $700 would have grown to $6,000 .
So imagine that you invested $1,000 in bitcoin then :)

This course aims at explaining the whole concept to you, this is not a course you wish to put aside because the whole blockchain cryptocurrency sphere is blowing up by the day. People who didn't get to learn about it few months ago are regretting now.

Like in all my courses, you are 100% sure of coming off this course a much wiser in these new technologies and equipped at making financial decisions that will transform your life in few months.

This course will take you from absolute beginner to full understanding the whole cryptocurrency and blockchain concepts. Its a new technology that is just about 8 years old, but just like when the internet first started, it has already made so many common people multi-millionaires.

What is Etherum ?

Ethereum is an open source, globally decentralized computing infrastructure that executes programs called smart contracts. It uses a blockchain to synchronize and store the system’s state changes, along with a cryptocurrency called ether to meter and constrain execution resource costs.

The Ethereum platform enables developers to build powerful decentralized applications with built-in economic functions. While providing high availability, auditability, transparency and neutrality, it also reduces or eliminates censorship, and reduces certain counterparty risks.

What is a smart contract ?

The term smart contract has been used over the years to describe a wide variety of different things. In the 1990s, cryptographer Nick Szabo coined the term and defined it as “a set of promises, specified in digital form, including protocols within which the parties perform on the other promises”. Since then, the concept of smart contracts has evolved, especially after the introduction of decentralized blockchain platforms with the invention of Bitcoin in 2009. In the context of Ethereum, the term is actually a bit of a misnomer, given that Ethereum smart contracts are neither smart nor legal contracts, but the term has stuck. In this book, we use the term “smart contract” to refer to immutable computer programs that run deterministically in the context of an Ethereum Virtual Machine as part of the Ethereum network protocol, i.e. on the decentralized Ethereum world computer. 

What is a DApp?

A Decentralized Application, or DApp, is an application which is mostly or entirely decentralized.

Consider all the possible aspects of an application that may be decentralized:

  • Front-end software

  • Back-end software (logic)

  • Data storage

  • Name resolution

  • Message communications

What is Web3.js ?

web3.js is a collection of libraries which allow you to interact with a local or remote

ethereum node, using a HTTP or IPC connection.

You will learn

  • installation

  • the big picture

  • network

    • create web3 object

    • local hosted with ganache

    • remote hosted with infura

  • account

    • create new account

What is an ICO?

An Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is a fundraising mechanism in which new projects sell their underlying crypto tokens in exchange for bitcoin or ether. It's similar to an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in which investors purchase shares of a company. But an ICO is much, much easier to create and basically everyone is able to start an ICO.
