World renowned Princeton University has started an online course on Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies. The course will be available on Coursera, which is a leading education platform that aims to partner with “leading universities and organizations worldwide, to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free.”
Earlier, we had reported that Cryptocurrency was also going to be added to the Stanford’s cyber security program.
Princeton’s cryptocurrency course will be available only in the English language and will need 6-weeks of study with minimum 3-5 dedicated hours per week.
In the introduction to the course, on the Coursera website, it is written that “there’s a lot of excitement about Bitcoin, but also a lot of confusion about what Bitcoin is and how it works. We’re offering this course focusing on the computer science behind Bitcoin to help cut through the hype and get to the core of what makes Bitcoin unique. To really understand what is special about Bitcoin, we need to understand how it works at a technical level.”
This course will be taught by senior faculties like Arvind Narayanan, Joseph Bonneau and Edward Felten of the Princeton University
