What is Blockhain?

In its most basic form, blockchain is a distributed database that enables secure, transparent and tamper-proof record-keeping. Unlike traditional databases, which are centrally managed by a single entity, blockchains are decentralized, meaning they’re spread across multiple computers or nodes. By design, a blockchain is resistant to modification of data: a record cannot be altered retroactively without the alteration of all subsequent blocks and the consensus of the network. Blockchain was created to solve the “double-spending” problem (a potential flaw in a digital cash protocol in which the same single digital token can be spent more than once), allowing public transactions without the need of a trusted authority or central server. Since then it has inspired many other applications.

Do I need previous knowledge on blockchain technology to access this blockchain master?

No, you don't need previous blockchain knowledge to enroll. The programme covers the basics in Block 0 and then builds up from there. The curriculum is designed with two paths you can choose from: the Business Path and the Technical Path. If you don't have technical expertise, we recommend you choose the Tech one, precisely to help you develop that area.

Do I need to know programming in order to participate in the programme?

No, you don't need to know programming to enrol in this blockchain master. In fact, you have the opportunity to choose between a Business Path and a Technical Path, so you can reinforce your technical knowledge in the latter.
