The Draper University blockchain intensive bootcamp has been designed to teach executives about the fundamentals of blockchain technology in order to understand its potential to create efficiencies in new business models.  

All industries and facets-of-life will inevitably be forced to adapt or face disruption by blockchain technology, similar to how they had to adjust to the Internet. The full potential of blockchain remains largely untapped. The path towards a more trusting and efficient blockchain future is being paved minute-by-minute by innovators around the world.

What will we cover?

Blockchain Overview: Utility, Architecture, and why it matters

You will learn about various types of Blockchains, how their designs are created to solve different problems, and which to apply to your solution. 

Blockchain Strategy: Efficiencies, New Business Models and Tokens

You will learn how to apply blockchain as an infrastructure to create efficiencies and new business models as well as leverage tokens to realign incentives for your customers.
