Sobre o curso

This first course of the Blockchain specialization provides a broad overview of the essential concepts of blockchain technology – by initially exploring the Bitcoin protocol followed by the Ethereum protocol – to lay the foundation necessary for developing applications and programming. You will be equipped with the knowledge needed to create nodes on your personal Ethereum blockchain, create accounts, unlock accounts, mine, transact, transfer Ethers, and check balances. You will learn about the decentralized peer-to-peer network, an immutable distributed ledger and the trust model that defines a blockchain. This course enables you to explain basic components of a blockchain (transaction, block, block header, and the chain) its operations (verification, validation, and consensus model) underlying algorithms, and essentials of trust (hard fork and soft fork). Content includes the hashing and cryptography foundations indispensable to blockchain programming, which is the focus of two subsequent specialization courses, Smart Contracts and Decentralized Applications (Dapps). You will work on a virtual machine image, specifically created for this course, to build an Ethereum test chain and operate on the chain. This hands-on activity will help you understand the workings of a blockchain, its transactions, blocks and mining. Main concepts are delivered through videos, demos and hands-on exercises....

This is an introductory course to Blockchain. The supplemented material (in other words self-study) is excellent and in my opinion is the only way to master the concepts and details of this discipline

I find this course helpful to absolute beginner and for one who wants to grasp the basic concepts of Blockchain . The tutor tried to explain most part with simplicity and good and sufficient details.

It is a very nice course but some of the links are outdated which made it impossible to answer some questions in the graded section and learning section.(optional)

Very good introduction to blockchain. I am not giving it five stars because some links were broken to do the online test and had to find a workaround alone.

Presenter was good, but I prefer a presenters with a clearer voice(no accent) for this learning environment only, in a personal setting it would not matter.

It is really useful. I felt some terms were familiar to me and so it was easy to pick up, but for others I don't know if they would face any issues.

A good start to blockchain. Lectures should have been more descriptive and interactive. Resources are useful and assignments are very interesting.

This is just basic of the blockchain technology. The assignment and extra readings given in this really helped me a lot to understand the basics.

The course tells you the very basics of blockchain like how to use the blockchain, basic terms in the blockchain, how the blockchain works etc.,

Great class but I think the final project should be on a network, because it not user friendly to download a virtual machine and run all of this

A perfect introduction to the Blockchain topic. The optional reading material consists of even more in-depth materials and is a must-read.

Excellent course ! The only slight negative point I found is the English subtitling which, sometime, is not correct and creates confusions

I was a little acquainted with the subject, the explanation were a little too summarized even for high level course. Anyway very good.

Interesting enough to get curiosity to go for Course 2.

A stepwise approach to get the concepts behind the generic name "blockchain"

Great. Informative. The lab was really good, although I'd prefer a more advanced CLI environment for learning the network concepts.

The final program part was not that well optimized. But apart from only that part everything else was pretty interesting to learn
