Start with a solid understanding of blockchain and crypto fundamentals. If you are not sure about what makes a blockchain unique, what tokenized assets are or how smart contracts differ from a lawyer's contract, this is the right course for you. You will understand all building blocks of this technology so that you can design and present your own blockchain use case.
Upon completion of the Swisscom Blockchain Starter Pack, you will receive a certificate issues by Swisscom Blockchain AG in collaboration with University of Lucerne – Information Technology.
