I've gained a strong knowledge of Bitcoin's architecture but wish this course was updated to include the developments of the last two years. A few lectures on alt-coins would have been useful as well.

Great course, a very broad and in-depth overview of concepts surrounding cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin in particular. Would be great to have an update of course; perhaps once the ICO craze is over? (-:

The course is great!
The teachers very prepared, but there are some things to change like, for example, the assignments (that are difficult and not consistent with the contents of the course) and some contents that, nowadays, are partly obsolete.

Interesting introduction to the subject matter. The assignments could use some refinement to make their goal a and the testing a little easier. There were also some errors in the economic analysis presented during the course.

It's a good course to get a grip on the fundamentals of cryptocurrency, beyond pure technology.
But the content must be updated, and practices are no well designed according to the flow of the course.

I love the assignments (better than any other classes I knew) but the instructions and also helps weren't clear.
The materials are a bit out-dated. Some of the materials from Week 8 aren't useful.

Should have more lesson about alt coins and develop a Blockchain. Also tell more about concurrences of blockchain (tangle, hashgraf and so on).
Should have explicit the need of java programming.

1 Very poor preparation of programming assignments
2 Poor preparation of video content (like switching to video from camera just to demonstrate laser pointer)

Good information even if it could be explained in a better manner. The labs are very poorly designed with vague requirements and poor grading logic.

It was very hard to figure out what is required to complete assessment tasks.
I did't find much correlation between lectures and practical tasks.

A good introduction, but could be better. The assignments' code is poorly documented and the assignments themselves are not clear.

A little dated (2014) and not enough technical detail, coverage a little too broad. Java homework exercises are great, though

Assignments were vague and too much time had to be spent on unnecessary things like browsing forums.

Good introduction to blockchain and cryptocurrency, simple and to the roots, to start to know.

I had troubles in understanding assignments. I think they should be more descriptive

Contents are referred to 2014 status of bitcoin and of the related topics.

The course covered a lot of things, but the programming assessments are very poor. In first the assessments the bonus task is basically not about blockchain, but rather about graphs. I would recommend adding to course more small coding assignments to get familiar with blockchain and bitcoin platform in a more practical way.

This was a tedious and boring course! the assignments were impossible to decipher and I fail to see the end result of the point of the coins. Wouldn't it make more sense to have some form of physical currency or bartering instead?

Lectures were extremely good, but assignments and graders were very low quality and difficult to decipher requirements from. Professors and TAs were not active in the forums.

Data from 2014 isn't useful in today's environment. Although fundamentals are clearly valid tpday, an update to course is mandatory
