Redesign systems using blockchain. Open to students with any level of technical ability.
This project-based course will give creative students an opportunity to work together on revolutionary change leveraging blockchain technology. The course will provide role-playing opportunities to internalize blockchain concepts, as well as group discussion of blockchain fundamentals in a flexible format accessible to those with or without a strong technical background. Specific topics include: incentives, ethics, crypto-commons, values, FOMO 3D, risks, implications and social good. Application and impact areas may come from medicine, law, economics, history, anthropology, or other sectors. Students will each discover a new possible use-case for blockchain and prototype their vision for the future accordingly. Student diversity of background and foreground valued highly.
