I liked the course, because it was beginner friendly, and at the same time slowly moving on to core concepts. I liked it when all the instructors where introducing a new word, or seemingly difficult concept, and told us not to worry or think that it was hard. Loved the course!

I liked the clarity of the course! Blockchain is still a very new concept, even for people researching that, and not an easy concept to grasp all mechanisms, and to realize/think what could be done with this technology in the future. Instructors and their materials are very clear and attractive! It makes it easy to understand, and I am very very thankful for that!

In-depth and comprehensive content that was designed in a manner so as to not overwhelm a beginner with excess details. A fine balance has been achieved I think.
