If you’re confused about Bitcoin, Cryptocurrencies and the Blockchain, then worry no more.
We have put together a very entertaining and thorough course on the basics of Bitcoin with that most engaging expert, author Dominic Frisby. Our course takes you through the history of Bitcoin, explains the technology in simple terms, and puts the Bitcoin bubble in the context of other financial bubbles like tulips and the South Sea fiasco.
Dominic is an actor and comedian as well as financial writer. He is the author of Bitcoin: The Future of Money? which was one of the first books on the phenomenon.
He will tell you how to get started with Cryptocurrency, and describe the exciting decentralising nature of the Blockchain and its many applications.
Our course is divided into eleven highly digestible chunks of filming, totally over an hour of video.
There is a reading and further resources list, plus quiz, certificate and student forum.
