Introduction to Blockchain tehnology - september 2017
The course aims to give participants a solid understanding of Blockchain technology. Despite the fact that it covers only intrusive topics around the main technological aspects, economic benefits and the future of Blockchain, details of ICO, DAPP, smart contracts, and cryptography will also be affected so that the course is a transition to the next two parts of the learning cycle in Software Foundation, where you will see the technical details and the necessary programming skills and tools.
The partner of the course – Aeternity – will provide 20 scholarships for selected students enrolled in the training. Anyone wishing to apply for a scholarship can write to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 26th by submitting answers in Bulgarian or English to the following questions:
1. Public block networks have a major problem – they can not handle a substantial number of transactions and smarter contracts. How is it best to resolve this issue – on-line or off-chain? Why? (up to 300 words)
2. The ëternity block will make it possible to create multiple decentralized applications. Which of them do you think would be the most successful? Why? (up to 400 words)
3. Why are you the best candidate for æternity scholarship? (up to 300 words)
