This course introduces students to the fundamental principles that give blockchains value. We will focus on how core concepts in both cryptography and economics work together to create incentive systems for blockchains. Students will also learn what it means to have a decentralized economy, and will begin to understand the protocols that govern the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services in such an economy.


Anyone interested in understanding how blockchain technology works, how it has value and what its implications are for the world of commerce



Learning Objectives

At the end of the course students should be able to:

  • Identify the cryptoeconomic properties of a basic cryptocurrency like Bitcoin

  • Describe how cryptographic techniques are implemented in the blockchain

  • Explain how cryptography is used to reach consensus in a decentralized network
  • Understand how the blockchain creates economic incentives
  • Compare proof-of-work and proof-of-stake consensus systems, addressing the economic limitations of both

    Excellent content

    This is one of the best explanations I've come across of the underlying principles behind Bitcoin! I've been reading and trying to understand it for quite a while. This really helped tie together all these abstract loosely coupled ideas I had in my head into a consolidated tangible concept. The intuitive explanations really helped nail down so many of the questions I've had, right off the bat. Thank you so much!
