Course Description

Do you like learning about fascinating technology? Are you considering investing in Bitcoin or Ethereum? Are tired of wondering what the heck the Blockchain is? Or maybe you'd just like to hold your own in a conversation on cryptocurrencies at the office?

This course is for students who wish to confidently navigate the rapidly evolving world of cryptocurrency, and it's taught by developers who love technology, rather than investors looking to pitch you. Many courses focus on teaching you how to purchase Bitcoin, but very few explain how it works or why it has become so popular.

The course begins with a basic overview of the history, concepts and vocabulary of cryptocurrency: What it is, how to acquire it, how to send and receive it, how it differs from differs from stocks and bonds, and what the heck a miner is. With that foundation, you will be ready to take on cryptocurrency's more advanced concepts: mining, forks, digital signatures, hashing functions, smart contracts, tokens, and distributed applications (DApps).

This structure makes our course suitable for students of all levels. No math or coding experience is necessary.

By the end of this course, you'll have no trouble answering the following questions:

  • What is a Bitcoin? Can I touch it? Where do I get some?
  • What is Ethereum? (and, yes, how to buy it)
  • How and why cryptocurrency Mining works.
  • What exactly happens behind the scenes in a Bitcoin transaction?
  • What is a Blockchain? What can it do? What can't it do?
  • What is a Smart Contract? What can it do? What can't it do?
  • What is an Ethereum Token?
  • What i the difference between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash
  • What is an Address? A Wallet? A Private Key?
  • What is SHA-256? RSA? ECDSA? Why does it matter?
  • What is a Digital Signature and why does it prevent someone from stealing my Bitcoin?
  • What the heck is Segwit?

This is not a course designed to pitch Bitcoin, Ethereum, or a token! This is a course taught by developers who love technology, rather than investors looking to pitch you.

This course is for information purposes only. It is not intended to be investment advice.

I've been wanting to learn more about blockchain (the technology aspect - not trading) and this course was SO helpful. The course dug into how mining actually works, how a blockchain remains secure and how individual transactions use public / private key cryptography to keep secure. Definitely recommend!

I'm Colt. I'm a developer with a serious love for teaching. I've spent the last few years teaching people to program at 2 different immersive bootcamps where I've helped hundreds of people become web developers and change their lives. My graduates work at companies like Google, Salesforce, and Square. Most recently, I led Galvanize's SF's 6 month immersive program as Lead Instructor and Curriculum Director. After graduating from my class, 94% of my students went on to receive full-time developer roles. I also worked at Udacity as a Senior Course Developer on the web development team where I got to reach thousands of students daily. I’ve since focused my time on bringing my classroom teaching experience to an online environment. In 2016 I launched my Web Developer Bootcamp course , which has since gone on to become one of the best selling and top rated courses on Udemy. I was also voted Udemy’s Best New Instructor of 2016. I've spent years figuring out the "formula" to teaching technical skills in a classroom environment, and I'm really excited to finally share my expertise with you. I can confidently say that my online courses are without a doubt the most comprehensive ones on the market. Join me on this crazy adventure!

I've been involved in Bitcoin since 2013 and I believe the underlying technology, the blockchain, is one of the most remarkable innovations of the 21st century. I've teamed up with @coltsteele to instruct a Udemy course on what they can (and can't ) do. In my spare time, I enjoy chess, [science-]fiction, photography, and quality time with my Pothos, Walter.

This course is for students who wish to confidently navigate the rapidly evolving world of cryptocurrency, and it's taught by developers who love technology, rather than investors looking to pitch you.

With that foundation, you will be ready to take on cryptocurrency's more advanced concepts: mining , forks , digital signatures , hashing functions , smart contracts , tokens , and distributed applications (DApps). This structure makes our course suitable for students of all levels. No math or coding experience is necessary. By the end of this course, you'll have no trouble answering the following questions: What is a Bitcoin ? Can I touch it? Where do I get some? What is Ethereum ? (and, yes, how to buy it) How and why cryptocurrency Mining works. What exactly happens behind the scenes in a Bitcoin transaction ? What is a Blockchain ? What can it do? What can't it do? What is a Smart Contract ? What can it do? What can't it do? What is an Ethereum Token ? What i the difference between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash What is an Address ? A Wallet ? A Private Key ? What is SHA-256 ? RSA ? ECDSA ? Why does it matter? What is a Digital Signature and why does it prevent someone from stealing my Bitcoin? What the heck is Segwit ?

I've been wanting to learn more about blockchain (the technology aspect - not trading) and this course was SO helpful. The course dug into how mining actually works, how a blockchain remains secure and how individual transactions use public / private key cryptography to keep secure. Definitely recommend!

I'm Colt. I'm a developer with a serious love for teaching. I've spent the last few years teaching people to program at 2 different immersive bootcamps where I've helped hundreds of people become web developers and change their lives. My graduates work at companies like Google, Salesforce, and Square. Most recently, I led Galvanize's SF's 6 month immersive program as Lead Instructor and Curriculum Director. After graduating from my class, 94% of my students went on to receive full-time developer roles. I also worked at Udacity as a Senior Course Developer on the web development team where I got to reach thousands of students daily. I’ve since focused my time on bringing my classroom teaching experience to an online environment. In 2016 I launched my Web Developer Bootcamp course , which has since gone on to become one of the best selling and top rated courses on Udemy. I was also voted Udemy’s Best New Instructor of 2016. I've spent years figuring out the "formula" to teaching technical skills in a classroom environment, and I'm really excited to finally share my expertise with you. I can confidently say that my online courses are without a doubt the most comprehensive ones on the market. Join me on this crazy adventure!
