Course Description

Currency has been many things over the ages. First, it was barley, salt and cattle. It then became metal, mostly gold and silver. Representational currency came next, where pieces of paper represented holdings in gold or silver. Then fiat became the norm, where the currency's value was supported only by the government issuing it.

You might have heard about cryptocurrency, blockchain, bitcoin, decentralization and their potential to play an important role in our lives as the Internet, but have no idea of what they mean, how they work or how to prepare yourself to capitalize on their potential.
