Deep Dive into Blockchain 2021
Linking Economics, Technology and Law (Online Course)
This online Summer School gives you a complete immersion into the topic of blockchain from world-leading experts and practitioners in the field. Blockchain-based systems, with cryptocurrencies as the most prominent example, have disrupted and reshaped the way we now think about digital finance and other similar applications, such as supply chains. Blockchain and related technologies allow to store sequential, trustful information without enforced consensus by central authorities or trustees.
For a full understanding of Blockchain, with all its implications and potential for application in practice, it is absolutely crucial to look at it from a multidisciplinary perspective. This is exactly what the UZH Blockchain Center offers during the three weeks of this course: you will understand the three key pillars of blockchain systems, namely the technology, the economics and the legal aspects behind it. Building on this, we will then explore other fields of application, such as forensics and data analytics.
The course is taught by different professors and lecturers from UZH and other leading universities worldwide, as well as top practitioners from various fields.
Further, the program is highly interactive, with hands-on practice sessions incorporating the most advanced and promising blockchain-based platforms.
