Beyond the Basics of BlockchainThis course moves away from focusing solely on blockchain to discuss how blockchain can be replaced, expanded or improved to meet the needs of a particular use case.
Course descriptionSo far, this learning path has been focused on blockchain-based distributed ledgers. This course goes beyond this view to discuss how the blockchain protocol can be replaced (using different underlying architectures), expanded (with second-layer protocols) or improved (using advanced cryptographic primitives) to overcome some of the limitations of blockchain technology.
