Cryptocurrency: Beyond Bitcoin Teach-Out

University of Michigan Teach-Out Experts, University of Michigan

Delve into the importance of cryptocurrencies in today’s financial system

Since Bitcoin was created in 2009, the landscape of global finance has rapidly evolved. Unfortunately, the discussion is increasingly complex, jargon-heavy, and at times controversial, making it difficult for newcomers to join the conversation.

This course will introduce you to the mechanisms of cryptocurrency, systems of blockchain, and the process of mining. It will also take you through the characteristics of currency and the history of cryptocurrencies.

Investigate the impacts of cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin is a revolutionary technology that some say has the potential to reshape global finance, but it isn’t without its critics.

On this course, you’ll assess the societal and ecological impacts that cryptocurrencies and their technologies have, looking at ways to mitigate any negative impacts. You’ll also consider whether cryptocurrencies carry some of their purported risks - investment fraud, market disruption, and criminal activity.

Explore the future of blockchain technologies

Cryptocurrencies are constantly evolving, as is how we use blockchain technology. Blockchain technology has the potential to redefine many industries; one example can be seen with the recent rise of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).

You’ll look to the future and discover how changes to financial systems and technologies could affect you, especially in regards to education and developing your financial literacy.

Learn with top professionals from the University of Michigan and the wider industry

This course is led by the experts from The University of Michigan and professionals working in the industry, including lawyers, financial experts, and human rights advocates. They will guide you through the topic, helping you to understand cryptocurrencies and how you can improve your digital financial literacy.
