What you will learn:

Crypto is everywhere nowadays. Some say the technology has the potential to revolutionize the world in ways similar to the arrival of the internet, whereas others claim crypto is an elaborate pyramid scheme. For the non-technical of us out there, crypto can seem like an overwhelming and deeply technical topic.

In this elective, we'll examine the fundamentals of cryptocurrencies including their use cases based on real-world examples. We'll start by exploring how Blockchains work while considering why they represent a revolutionary technological breakthrough. We'll then make our way into the use cases for cryptocurrencies, followed by an in-depth discussion of NFTs, the field of decentralized finance, and the emergence of DAOs or decentralized autonomous organizations. We'll then dig into the concept of the metaverse and finish with an open discussion about how the world might look very different in 20 years if crypto achieves its potential.

'Crypto for Everyone' is designed for non-technical individuals interested in understanding the technology and its potential impact on the world.
