“There’s ton of misinformation out there, and I think Antonio did a great job synthesizing that information, really narrowing down what Blockhain is and what its applications are. In terms of the class, it looked like a lot of people from different backgrounds which added to the richness of the experience. I give this class an A+ “, Eric L.
“I think it’s been really helpful separating the hype from the reality, understand the ecosystem and gave me a better idea of how we can take advantage of this new technology”, Sean B.
“I loved the fact that it combined both sessions, there’s something for the management and founders, something for the business people and something for the tech people”, Andrey S.
“The instructors are very well educated and doing a good job at teaching people understand and implement blockchain to your own business and your work environment “, Leon L.
