This course discusses the differences and details of private, permissioned blockchain (BC) technology, in contrast with the better known (but less used in business applications) public blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum.  Private blockchains have a much faster consensus methodology and can process many orders of magnitude more transactions than public blockchains.

This course illustrates some of the current applications of BC for business operations and its use for safely sharing information with partners.

Of the courses in the series, this one had a little more technical aspects and jargon for blockchain. This was probably a slightly deeper dive than I anticipated. And oddly enough, there is not CPE credit available for CPAs. I struggled to maintain my focus on this course.

Course Complexity: Intermediate

No advanced preparation or prerequisites are required for this course, but completing “Understanding blockchain technology and its capabilities” beforehand is highly recommended, especially for those who do not know blockchain basics
