Q​uite informative on how blockchain works and its properties. To fully understand this section one needs to do some outside reading that some sections fully sink in. The only thing I wish that could be improved is that some parts need to be updated to the current state of cryptocurrencies.

Professor Wachter was great and actually explained how things worked. It seems like the lecturers did not coordinate much because there was quite a bit of overlap/repetition in content. As in the other module, a number of mistakes and spelling errors in the slides which is frustratring.

I got a big picture of this new industry, including the common biases, what kinds of niche industries in the ecosystem and the potential opportunities. I like this class! It is my first class in this field.

a great overall introduction to this area. Well structured and presented. The additional speakers were a bonus and cemented the argument why blockchain and digital currencies are here to stay,

Simple. Compact. Suitable to touch the surface of the technology.


No assignments. A lot of names (organizations, terms) stacked. Lack of even simple CS-related explanations.

Good course work and information for beginners. Would be good to have some modules that can cover the more recent happenings in the block chain world and some focus on DeFI.

Really enjoyed the last module by Sarah Hammer. 2nd Module was a little tech heavy. I would suggest more visual information to help keep the content more dynamic.

Week 1 and 4 are awesome for a beginner in BC but week 2 and 3 require more focus, right now it looks more technical and less informative.

A glossary would be fine, because the teachers don't use vocabulary that average people would use. The vocabulary is super complex.
