BLOCKCHAIN AND CRYPTOCURRENCY FREE COURSE:

BLOCKCHAIN AND CRYPTOCURRENCY FREE COURSE:

Who does not know the name of Bitcoin, the most popular and costly Cryptocurrencies of the day. This is a kind of virtual currency. The foundation of Cryptocurrency is based on Blockchain Technology, which is a public ledger to share information in a trustworthy and secure way. The concept of this Technology has now spread from Cryptocurrency to various other fields like IoT, business process management, smart contract and many others.

Thinking the future of this Blockchain Technology on various fields, National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning which is briefly called NPTEL is going to launch a free course. It is a joint venture from academia and industry like IBM. Almost all the top IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) like IIT BOMBAY, IIT DELHI, IIT GUWAHATI, IIT KANPUR, IIT MADRAS, IIT KHARAGPUR, IIT ROORKEE and IISc BANGALORE is the part of this course.
It is good news for those who are too much interested in Blockchain and also the cryptocurrency. The investor of such currency should know about the Technology behind it. The course is open to all. There is no restriction or age bar for entering into the course. This is an online course without any cost. If a person taking this course want the certificate only Rs. 1100.00(INR) has to pay as Exam Fees. The Examination will be held in India only.

    2. Blockchain Technologies (blockchaintechnologies.com) Blockchain Technologies is a huge static content website that covers practically every single question you might have about blockchain. Additionally, the site also has a news section where stories from the largest cryptocurrency news blogs are gathered. I added this site to this list of the 27 best cryptocurrency blogs for three main reasons. The first is that the content is absolutely amazing. It is very obvious that the writer spent A LOT of time researching about cryptocurrencies. Secondly, the UI of the website is astonishing. The colors are very well picked, the site charges in the blink of an eye and it is completely responsive. And finally, although the Blockchain Technologies blog has a couple Ads, it is very clear that the main objective of the site is to inform, and not to just make money with visitors.
