Next to the Internet, Blockchain is considered to be one of the most impactful technology developments in recent history. Welcome to the new and decentralised economy. The technology is already transforming how humans, machines, corporations, and governments interact. It’s not just a new technology; it’s an economic and business innovation that has the potential to disrupt every industry.
Blockchain has taken the exchange system to a whole new level, driving engagement, certainty, and trust that has long been taken for granted. Now autonomy, democracy, and distribution are standard play for forward-thinking and emerging companies.
In our one-week Design a Blockchain Product course, you’ll work on your very own Blockchain product. Our expert instructor will guide you on ideation and concept development, right through to MVP creation. At the end of this course, you’ll have the skills to pitch your final concept and the ability to identify a problem, a market, and a solution.
This course will teach you the fundamentals of Blockchain from theory, to cryptocurrency creation, to product and strategy, to design tools and techniques.
In this next intake WWF-Australia and Academy Xi are partnering to give you the opportunity to amplify impact through a Blockchain-based idea. At the end of the course, you could even have the opportunity to be incubated and supported by Panda Labs – WWF-Australia’s innovation program that accelerates new ideas with positive social and environmental impact.
There are no prerequisites for this course. We only ask you have an interest and willingness to learn and elevate your skills.
We’ll introduce you to Blockchain concepts including cryptocurrencies, tokens, and ICO’s. Learn the fundamentals of blocks and cryptography and what it means when we refer to ‘private’ and ‘public’ chains.
Also, look behind-the-scenes to understand what it’s like to work on a live Blockchain product: DApp (Decentralised Application) on the Ethereum
Learn which businesses have already adopted the Blockchain and understand how they’re using this technology to solve problems using innovative solutions.
With competitive research at hand, you’ll be guided through the ideation stage of a Blockchain concept. Deep dive on your concept by understanding the intricacies of the Blockchain and how it can be used to address specific customer problems in your chosen industry.
We’ll introduce you to economic design; from game theory to how we create incentives within a token economy. Take a look into token design examples within the industry and understand how this fits into your own prototype. At the end of the week, you’ll detail the actors and interactions using the Smart Social Contract.
