Wherever you turn, Bitcoin seems to be there. It is in the spotlight especially after the world's richest man joined the frenzy.
What is it?
Why are people going crazy about it?
How did it all start?
Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious internet figure gave birth to Bitcoin in 2008 as a way to escape the global financial system. What was ridiculed in the earlier days is now a trillion-dollar asset in market capitalization! This is the story of perseverance, hard work, and most importantly a vision of attaining freedom.
Political and Financial Freedom.
Bitcoin has no leader.
Bitcoin has no headquarters.
Bitcoin has no marketing departments.
It is something that is owned and controlled by none. So, hackers and scammers across the internet are taking advantage of the ignorance of internet users as they rake in billions of dollars every year. This is because only a very few of us know the intricate workings of Bitcoin.
Why is this the case?
When you search about Bitcoin to understand the concept, a lot of Boring stuff pops up, making it boring and hard to learn it. However, the truth is, it's very simple and easy to learn. In this course, we are using visual elements to make it engaging. I believe in the quote,
"Tell me and I forget
Teach me and I remember
Involve me and I learn"
So, I will involve you in every chapter. You will dive deep and learn:

The first 2 sections were great, but the 3rd section can be a lot better if it the content is explained a bit more clearly.
I found it a bit difficult to keep up, also some of the concepts explained here like assigning zero bits to the beginning of the hash using nonce should've been explained in the beginning of section 2.
Nice Concept in giving the description of this course. Hope to have another course from this instructor.
The First two sections of this course were amazing in explaining Bitcoin and Blockchain. The Third section repeated the concept again with little bit additions, which could have been incorporated in the first two sections itself. Overall Good Experience.
Enjoyed most of the course but seems to be cut off on the Private Keys section? Only an intro is included.
I tried to understand bitcoin and its related technology from many sources. This course really gave me the true insights on what I was looking for. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to know bitcoin well.
So simple and I learned a looooot!!! I watched really complicated videos on Youtube but this course made it reallyy easy to understand everything! Thanks a lot! Excited to be in the world of crypto!!
