About this course
This is a free, self-paced online course.
In this free course, we look at how blockchain can solve some of the most critical issues for online transactions, including trust, reputation and transparency.
You will hear from our academic and industry experts and develop a sound understanding of blockchain and its revolutionary decentralised and distributed trust model. You will learn about critical concepts like the trust protocol, consensus, immutability and transparency, as well as public and private blockchains.
Find out how its current and potential applications extend well beyond cryptocurrency like bitcoin and imagine a trans-national world where blockchain could safely manage and verify all your personal records, from qualifications to citizenship.
The next step will be to examine the way in which blockchain solves issues of reputational trust across a range of industries. It is a technology that offers potential solutions to issues ranging from corporate identity to supply chain integrity.
UTS's Dr Philippa Ryan and ADCA's Nick Giulietto will share their experience and expertise, complemented by interviews with industry and government leaders.
