Prerequisites

None, entry level 

Educational approach

This training is based on both theory and practice

The objective is realised through a balanced mix of theoretical interactive sessions  and hands-on Blockchain experiments with a Blockchain Serious Game and a Blockchain Simulation, allowing the participants to absorb the fundamental nature of Blockchain and grasp the functioning of Blockchain wallets, nodes and miners.

To benefit from the practical exercises, the number of training participants is limited to 10.

General Information 

You need an individual laptop with internet connection or a Workstation.
