Next to the Internet, Blockchain is considered to be one of the most impactful technology developments in recent history. It’s a powerful tool that can drive social impact by enabling initiatives that were not feasible in the past.
For our Sydney course, we’ve partnered with WWF-Australia to give you the exclusive opportunity to amplify impact through your Blockchain-based idea. Your idea could leverage the potential of the sharing economy to reduce unsustainable consumption or reduce waste. It could also help improve the livelihoods of people in emerging economies, or prevent global deforestation – or something else?
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. Panda Labs creates a platform for collaboration by working with partners to explore how emerging technology, products, and new ways of working can be used to help protect the planet.
In our one-week Designing a Blockchain Product course, you’ll work on your very own Blockchain product on the Ethereum testnet. Our expert instructors 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 and all with a focus on social 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 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.
