Blockchains and Cryptocurrencies 101

The blockchain. NFTs. Bitcoin. Etherium. Dogecoin. Cryptokitties?! With all of these words flying around—and transactions and trades worth collectively billions of dollars—cryptocurrencies are on the rise. In this course, we’ll cover how cryptocurrency is made, exploring fundamental coding concepts like the SHA-256 hashing algorithms that make these blockchains and currencies run. You'll develop your own programs and important features that are implemented in blockchains and cryptocurrencies and see firsthand all of the math and code that goes into mining, generating, and using these digital currencies. With knowledge of their capabilities and limitations, you’ll be well prepared for the future.
