Objectifs de la formation

Blockchain is not a technology story, it is a psychology story. But in order to really understand what it is and what it is capable of doing in the areas of finance and politics, we first need understand the Block chain structure and Bitcoin protocol – where did it came from, what set of problems was it trying to solve, and how does it actually work.

Furthermore, we will explore the Blockchain ecosystem as a whole, getting to know its main actors, challenges and threats.
