Blockchain Technology Adoption and Implementation
This course prepares students for successful and well-thought out blockchain adoption and implementation. Its practical-oriented approach introduces key considerations and components to address, including legal and regulatory, data integrity and protection, interoperability, risk factors and others.
What you can learn.
- Lead successful blockchain adoption with due consideration to key technical and non-technical factors of success
- Recognize the novel risks that blockchain poses as a consequence of the nature of the technology
- Adopt a global and holistic view to blockchain adoption covering a broad range of factors, disciplines, and functions
- Understand the decentralized paradigm shift within the legal and regulatory landscape
About this course:After a few years of proof-of-concepts, blockchain solutions will now be adopted at scale. The difficulty in scaling from proof-of-concept to fully viable solutions is where many blockchain solutions fail. This course aims to empower the student with tools and knowledge to shape well-thought out blockchain implementations. Discussions and coursework build on vital insights and real-life learnings to aid in the deployment journey, helping you de-risk early adoption and ensure careful consideration of consequences for permissioned blockchains. The course will also be a great addition to build knowledge and understanding of blockchain technology in more general terms. It introduces key components including laws and regulations, digital identities, personal data handling, smart contract legalities, cybersecurity, governance of blockchain networks, interoperability, and others.
