LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

  • Is familiar with domain-specific terms like PGP encryption, DAO, Smart Contracts or Distributed Computing;

  • Understands the basic concepts, elements and principles of blockchain technology;

Lehrmethodik

Joint exploration of the field; learning through teaching (students prepare interactive presentations); invitation of external experts for specific topics (e.g. Bitcoin miners); practical and theoretical in-class exercises

The course will start on-site (one afternoon). After that the course will be run solely via synchronous web conference sessions (webinar, virtual classroom). The system will be provided free of charge. The use of a headset and a webcam is strongly recommended. The course will be accompanied with asynchronous communication tools  for collaboration.

Inhalt/e

There is hype around blockchain technology right now, mostly due to cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, built on a blockchain, reaching record high prices. But which technology is behind blockchain? Which other fields face disruption? Many think that blockchain is the future of technology, commerce, education, media, governments and even democracy. 

The course will discuss how disintermediation will advance. We will try to imagine Airbnb or Uber without the company or platform behind, just a network and software. Economy and governments could work without a central authority. The concept of blockchain is global and it might have a tremendous impact.
