Blockchain – Exploring Two Use Cases

Blockchain is a technology that has received a lot of press in recent months. In this class, we will introduce the students to blockchain by using two use-cases: Bitcoin, and Supply Chain. The students will gain a high level understanding of what blockchain is (we won’t dive into mining algorithms!) and they will gain an understanding of why there are different types of blockchains and learn when you might use one type versus the other.
