From Banking to Bitcoin

An overview of the Bitcoin blockchain. We expose the characteristics of the infrastructure of Bitcoin as a replacement for fiat money. We highlight the cryptography involved in securing the access to the network. After explaining how securing the network with mining and a consensus algorithm work, we describe the infrastructure of the Bitcoin blockchain. In case of a divergence of opinion, we see how forking the network can play out.

Duration: 4 hours

Ethereum, The World Computer

An overview of the Ethereum blockchain. We go over the differences with Bitcoin, its vision, key features, and specific components. We take a look at what Web3 might look like and how and who is building it. Moving forward, scalability is going to be a big problem and we see how it can be solved.

Duration: 4 hours

A few things to consider when choosing with whom to learn

values   |   dedication   |   skin in the game

We have been involved with Distributed Ledger Technologies since 2015. We firmly believe in the transformative impacts that DLT will have on the way societies organise themselves. We have been organising events for multiple platforms and formats. And we quit our former job to dedicate ourselves to crypto.

Cryptoeconomics

Arguing why cryptoeconomics is relevant at the blockchain base layer and at the dApp token layer. Blockchain is antifragile and cryptoeconomics is responsible making blockchains benefiting from stresses or volatility. Tokens can be considered as incentive machines with superpowers. Cryptoeconomics also offers a path to potential solutions for the scaling problem of blockchain.

Duration: 4 hours

Recommendation: we advise you to take this module if you are already familiar with Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Token Based Economic Networks

What are token-based economic networks? How social order, a balance between collaboration and cooperation, has been achieved historically and where does cryptoeconomics fit in this context to foster innovation in the way economies are organised? What are the super powers of mechanism design? How it works and what role do tokens play? What is the state of the art of the tooling used in mechanism design, i.e Token Engineering?

Duration: 3 hours

Recommendation: we advise you to take this module if you are already familiar with Bitcoin and Ethereum and Cryptoeconomics.

Governance Protocol

Governance is critical and hard because it should allow participants to engage in the decision making process of any project, and at the same time let them feel represented and engaged. Unfortunately, it is often the weak spot of new projects in the blockchain space. We explore the structure of the governance process proposed by Vlad Zamfir, some governance tools, and finally we take a look at a couple of projects to illustrate the concept.

Duration: 2 hours

Recommendation: we advise you to take this module if you are already familiar with Ethereum.

dApp in-depth

In–depth analysis of dApps that actually need to run on a blockchain. We cover sectors such as: identity, economy of attention, stablecoins, personal data, legally–binding agreements, dispute resolution, supply chain, energy.

Duration: 1 to 4 hours

Recommendation: no pre-requisite required, although the more familiar you are with Ethereum, Cryptoeconomics, and Token Based Economic Networks, the better you will understand the transformation process those industries are going through.

Professors

Sandra Becker

Sandra Becker is an economist with more than 10 years of experience in designing statistic models within market, social- and trend research.

Since the beginning of 2015 with a special focus on concepts of the decentralised economy. Co-founder of the community Ethereum Madrid and since 2017 teaching the concepts behind Bitcoin and Ethereum for various education programs as well as for the Master of Collaborative Economy at the University Sergio Arboleada.

In the beginning of 2018, together with Laurent, Sandra launched the Cryptoeconomics.hub with the objective to create a global academic space for collaborative learning and researching around cryptoeconomics and its elements.

Laurent Hardy

I like to think that I’m a challenger by nature: eager to get to bottom of things, understand how they work, find loopholes in reasonings, try the new instead of sleeping on the old.

In late 2015 I discovered blockchain technologies while I was working as senior technologist at Repsol Technology Centre on singular and futuristic matters. I could never stop learning about it. It has been a Pandora’s box that will last a long time before I can get to the bottom of it. Wiser and brighter people came into my life and made me see the world differently.

I cofounded Ethereum Madrid in 2016 as way to learn, meet new people and share knowledge. In 2017 I started to go deeper in cryptoeconomics and in 2018, Sandra and I we cofounded Cryptoeconomics.hub to actively work and bring people together on what we believe is the most fundamental layer of logic of the blockchain space.
