Description:‌ 
This‌ ‌first‌ ‌course‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌Blockchain‌ ‌specialization‌ ‌provides‌ ‌a‌ ‌broad‌ ‌overview‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌essential‌ 
concepts‌ ‌of‌ ‌blockchain‌ ‌technology‌ ‌–‌ ‌by‌ ‌initially‌ ‌exploring‌ ‌the‌ ‌Bitcoin‌ ‌protocol‌ ‌followed‌ ‌by‌ ‌the‌ 
Ethereum‌ ‌protocol‌ ‌–‌ ‌to‌ ‌lay‌ ‌the‌ ‌foundation‌ ‌necessary‌ ‌for‌ ‌developing‌ ‌applications‌ ‌and‌ 
programming.‌ ‌You‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌equipped‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌knowledge‌ ‌needed‌ ‌to‌ ‌create‌ ‌nodes‌ ‌on‌ ‌your‌ 
personal‌ ‌Ethereum‌ ‌blockchain,‌ ‌create‌ ‌accounts,‌ ‌unlock‌ ‌accounts,‌ ‌mine,‌ ‌transact,‌ ‌transfer‌ 
Ethers,‌ ‌and‌ ‌check‌ ‌balances.‌  
 
 
 
 
 
You‌ ‌will‌ ‌learn‌ ‌about‌ ‌the‌ ‌decentralized‌ ‌peer-to-peer‌ ‌network,‌ ‌an‌ ‌immutable‌ ‌distributed‌ ‌ledger‌ 
and‌ ‌the‌ ‌trust‌ ‌model‌ ‌that‌ ‌defines‌ ‌a‌ ‌blockchain.‌ ‌This‌ ‌course‌ ‌enables‌ ‌you‌ ‌to‌ ‌explain‌ ‌basic‌ 
components‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌blockchain‌ ‌(transaction,‌ ‌block,‌ ‌block‌ ‌header,‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌chain)‌ ‌its‌ ‌operations‌ 
(verification,‌ ‌validation,‌ ‌and‌ ‌consensus‌ ‌model)‌ ‌underlying‌ ‌algorithms,‌ ‌and‌ ‌essentials‌ ‌of‌ ‌trust‌ 
(hard‌ ‌fork‌ ‌and‌ ‌soft‌ ‌fork).‌ ‌Content‌ ‌includes‌ ‌the‌ ‌hashing‌ ‌and‌ ‌cryptography‌ ‌foundations‌ 
indispensable‌ ‌to‌ ‌blockchain‌ ‌programming,‌ ‌which‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌focus‌ ‌of‌ ‌two‌ ‌subsequent‌ ‌specialization‌ 
courses,‌ ‌Smart‌ ‌Contracts‌ ‌and‌ ‌Decentralized‌ ‌Applications‌ ‌(Dapps).‌ ‌You‌ ‌will‌ ‌work‌ ‌on‌ ‌a‌ ‌virtual‌ 
machine‌ ‌image,‌ ‌specifically‌ ‌created‌ ‌for‌ ‌this‌ ‌course,‌ ‌to‌ ‌build‌ ‌an‌ ‌Ethereum‌ ‌test‌ ‌chain‌ ‌and‌ ‌operate‌ 
on‌ ‌the‌ ‌chain.‌ ‌This‌ ‌hands-on‌ ‌activity‌ ‌will‌ ‌help‌ ‌you‌ ‌understand‌ ‌the‌ ‌workings‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌blockchain,‌ ‌its‌ 
transactions,‌ ‌blocks‌ ‌and‌ ‌mining.‌ 
 
Main‌ ‌concepts‌ ‌are‌ ‌delivered‌ ‌through‌ ‌videos,‌ ‌demos‌ ‌and‌ ‌hands-on‌ ‌exercises.‌
