Blockchain

With bitcoin valuation exceeding $11,000 and the cryptocurrency getting its own financial exchange, there is a growing interest in the technology. Companies are beginning to develop new applications for blockchain, bitcoin, and distributed crypto-ledgers. Applying blockchain technology to contracting, logistics, supply chain, healthcare, public documents, real estate, cybersecurity, and other transactions could disrupt many existing systems. Demand for experts in this field is growing, students who can fulfill this demand on the front end of the cycle will provide real value as industries and enterprises develop more applications for the technology.

Students in this course will be expected to develop a multidisciplinary understanding of blockchain technology with consideration for underlying ethical issues. They will be expected to create their own innovative applications and create fully functional distributed crypto-ledgers that demonstrate broad applications of the technology.
