Introduction to Blockchain Applications

Course Abstract: Blockchain is a powerful cybersecurity technology as it creates trust in an untrusting ecosystem. A blockchain is a consensus-supported, immutable ledger of cryptographically signed statements. This short course, Introduction to Blockchain Applications, takes students from blockchain concepts to implementing a real-world use case using EOSIO, a popular open source blockchain protocol. Upon completion of this short course, students will:

– Understand the importance of Blockchain technology

– Understand how transactions are securely processed and validated on a blockchain

– Comprehend basic cryptographic concepts relevant to blockchain technologies

– Discuss the breadth of use-cases of the blockchain

– Understand how to create blockchain applications

– Implement a real-world use case utilizing blockchain
