A technology that means versatility, safety, and advancement
The recent popularity of blockchain technology is not without significance.
Regardless of geographic and economic barriers, blockchain has completely broken through all business activities and is already causing a profound impact that ensures the following: Blockchain is here to stay.
The 5th Generation of the Internet represents an increase in the possibilities of its applications. Blockchain connects decentralized systems in a format that is open source, versatile and unalterably secure without depending on third parties, so that everyone can participate directly in the exponential change that is taking place.
60% of CIOs were about to integrate blockchain into their infrastructure by the end of 2020.
53% of C-Suite professionals identified blockchain as a crucial part of their organizational infrastructure by 2020.
77% of executives agree that they will lose their competitive advantage if they do not adopt blockchain.
An online course to understand the fundamentals and applications of Blockchain
This course provides professionals from various sectors with an insight into the fundamentals of blockchain and its practical applications. The objective is not only to understand how this technology works, but also to learn what its applications are in order to obtain the maximum benefit in the digital transformation projects that are developed.
Among those applications, you will be able to discover:
The skills you will develop
You will understand the historical,
technological, and commercial reasons that have led to the birth of blockchain.
You will analyze the impact of blockchain
in all industries and, of course, in your own business environment.
You will master the fundamentals of blockchain technology,
