Learn the basics of blockchain and cryptocurrency in this comprehensive non-technical course, and how you can use it to advance your business.

If you’ve heard of blockchain, it’s likely that you’ve seen the negative publicity it receives. This is because it’s often confused with cryptocurrency and Bitcoin – but the reality is that blockchain can be used in your business, if you know how to use it.

Blockchain can secure online privacy, transfer money, make micropayments, issue shares, remove complications from international shipping processes, and even register music copyright. While these functions of blockchain are more advanced, once you have the building blocks, you will be well on your way to using blockchain to further your business.

In this masterclass, aimed at those with little or no understanding of blockchain, expert Gary Nuttall will take you through the key aspects in non-technical terms, showing you how it works and why it is different to existing systems and technologies. You will leave with a solid understanding of the basics of blockchain, what the major use cases are for the technology, and how you can use it.
