Info tab content
This course serves as an introduction to the fast-developing computer science discipline focused on blockchain, decentralized trust, and the applications of these technologies such as cryptocurrencies, NFT's, and new forms of collective organizations. Students will learn about blockchains and the decentralization of trust and power through technology, launch a cryptocurrency token, create non-fungible tokens, and build an application on a blockchain. We will also discuss applications, ethical implications, and policy questions around decentralization.
