Open Access Learning: Crypto Lectures
The University of Basel has taken a pioneering role in offering Blockchain courses since 2017. Due to the great demand from our students and the general public, the CIF has decided to make the two main Bachelor and Master level courses on this topic available in an open-access format.
At the intersection of economics, computer science, and cryptography, the courses comprehensively introduce various aspects of this fascinating topic. Being university-level courses, the high level of detail within the topics will require some time for you to complete. However, no prior knowledge is required.
