Blockchain course contents
The blockchain course at its basic level will discuss its meaning, advantages and disadvantages, the areas in which it exercises most strongly, its entry into the financial market, the use of Bitcoin (BTC) in the crypto sphere, and the impacts on the transformation processes in digital industry companies.
During the intermediate level, the students will learn about the operation and application of blockchain in greater depth, with the understanding that “it has potentials still unexplored,” as detailed by the Mayor of Bogotá.
The course lasts four weeks and does not have a registration deadline since it will keep indefinitely online.
Although the initiative targets people residing in Bogotá, over 14 years of age, users can enroll in the course from anywhere in the world, because it is entirely virtual.
Taking advantage of the conjuncture of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bogotá’s Chamber of Commerce will also hold a free webinar on “Fintech challenges and opportunities” on Tuesday, April 28, at 10:00 AM local time (15 GMT).
The webinar was going to be an on-site conference, but it was re-scheduled as an online meeting because massive events cannot be held in the country yet.
