What is the potential of Blockchain?
First there was the industrial revolution which produced the locomotives and then there was the electricity, the last one was the internet.

Blockchain is the next generation, foundational and revolutionary technology after the Internet.

Life, Technology, this world will not be the same in the coming decade.

Learn all about Blockchain, before it is too late.

Why Learn Blockchain?
Blockchain is a revolutionary technology. It is simply a data structure where each block is linked to another block in a time-stamped. chronological order. It is the underlying infrastructure for bitcoin, a popular cryptocurrency. In near future, many companies will be adopting blockchain technologies for various purposes. Apart from bitcoin, it can be used for a wide variety of applications such as tracking ownership, digital assets, physical assets, or voting rights. It can also store and run computer code called ‘smart contracts’. However, blockchain is still new and the communities are still exploring the best ways in which it can be used.

Why Blockchain Training?
Blockchain Training will help you understand the underlying mechanisms of Bitcoin transaction systems, Ethereum & Hyperledger. Together with learning to setup your own public/private blockchain environment, you’ll also master the concepts like Cryptography & Cryptocurrency, Blockchain Networks, Bitcoin Mining & Security, Multichain, developing smart contract on Ethereum & Hyperledger Platform.

Why this course ?
World Economic Forum report predicted that by 2025 ten percent of global GDP will be stored on blockchain-related technologyBill & Melinda Gates Foundation aims to use blockchain technology to help the two billion people worldwide who lack bank accounts

About The Course
Our Blockchain Course is designed to introduce you to the concept of blockchain and explain the fundamentals of blockchain and bitcoin. The course will provide an overview of the structure and mechanism of blockchain. As a beginner, you will be learning the importance of consensus in transactions, how transactions are stored on blockchain, history of bitcoin and how to use bitcoin. Furthermore, you will be taught about the Ethereum platform and its programming language. You will setup your own private blockchain environment using Ethereum. In addition, you will develop a smart contract on private Ethereum blockchain and will be deploying the contract from web and console. Consecutively, you will learn to deploy business network using Hyperledger Composer. You will learn to set up private blockchain using Multichain platform. Towards the end of the course we will be discussing various practical use cases of blockchain to enhance your learning experience.

Course Description
Imagine it’s 1994. The internet exists, but is still referred to as an “information superhighway.” This may feel a long way off from the Digital Age that defines our lives today — where objects in our pockets power much of our activity, where we are connected to parts of the world previously unknown, and where our relationship to reality grows increasingly blended. We are well beyond websites. Blockchain technology is in that same 1994 moment, trying to imagine its own future.

Say goodbye to the Information Superhighway and hello to the Decentralized Economy. Blockchain is about to radically transform how humans and machines engage in economic activity, forever. While humans have been using formal institutions to reduce uncertainty in trade since the dawn of time, Blockchain is evolving this age-old model into something far more interesting: the distributed autonomous institution.

This course is designed to take you through from the basics of Blockchain Technology to an expert level. Even for the most informed technologists, Blockchain Technology is very difficult and often dense subject matter to fully internalize and understand. This course is here to help students unpack the ideas and better understand what the most important opportunities are in and around this new technology. We cover the Economics, Technology, and Business of Blockchain.

The Blockchain Revolution Promises to Touch Every Industry.
The blockchain revolution began with bitcoin, which used distributed ledger technology to foster trust in a currency and transaction mechanism not backed by any government or traditional institution. Visionary entrepreneurs and CIOs building and expanding digital businesses are keeping the flow of transformation going. Their goal is to reinvent the very nature of commercial activity by removing intermediaries and enabling more-fluid business processes to be conducted in diverse ecosystems.

What is Blockchain Technology?
Blockchain is the digital ledger of economic transactions worldwide.It is the world’s leading platform for digital assets.
A blockchain operates within a decentralized network of users that constructs a globally secure consensus ledger
Anyone can access the blockchain’s record and audit the activity of its network
The blockchain is comprised of blocks of the network users’ activity or transactions, each block is chained to it’s parent’s ID (cryptographic Hash), so the longer the grows, so grows the truth.
Blockchain technology is the foundation for Bitcoin. However if the blockchain were the island of Manhattan, Bitcoin would be but one building on it…there can be so much more

Why Blockchain?
The Blockchain is a foundational technology, like TCP/IP, which enables the Internet. And much like the Internet in the late 1990s, we don’t know exactly how the Blockchain will evolve, but evolve it will.

Similar to the Internet, the Blockchain must also be allowed to grow unencumbered. This will require careful handling that recognizes the difference between the platform and the applications that run on it. TCP/IP empowers numerous financial applications that are regulated, but TCP/IP is not regulated as a financial instrument. The Blockchain should receive similar consideration. While the predominant use case for the Blockchain today is bitcoin currency exchange that may require regulation, this will change over time.

Had we over-regulated the Internet early on, we would have missed out on many innovations that we can’t imagine living without today. The same is true for the Blockchain. Disruptive technologies rarely fit neatly into existing regulatory considerations, but rigid regulatory frameworks have repeatedly stifled innovation. It’s likely that innovations in the Blockchain will outpace policy, let’s not slow it down.
