Bitcoin is now an Online Course
Yes, Bitcoin enthusiasts, as well as beginners, can now learn the inner workings of Bitcoin in an academic environment. Bitcoin Association, a global industry organization based in Switzerland pushing the adoption of the Bitcoin SV blockchain for businesses, announced the launch of Bitcoin SV Academy before the year ended.
The Original Bitcoin
“Education is a cornerstone of the work we do at Bitcoin Association, as we help businesses and individuals alike understand the Bitcoin system envisioned by Satoshi Nakamoto, and how Bitcoin SV is the only project implementing that Satoshi Vision,” Bitcoin Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen states.
Bitcoin SV, with SV standing for Satoshi Vision, has successfully restored the original Bitcoin protocol, uncapped the size of its blockchain’s data blocks to accommodate big data, enhanced its security to a level never before seen in cryptocurrency history and adapted a regulation-friendly mindset—all in accordance to Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision of global adoption.
“Bitcoin SV Academy will be a key component of that work moving forward, providing a platform to deliver a robust curriculum tailored to all levels of ability and knowledge, as we educate the world about just what’s possible with the power of the original Bitcoin protocol,” Nguyen further states.
With this launch, Bitcoin SV further solidifies its position as the blockchain businesses can use and trust.
Bitcoin SV Academy caters to those who are just starting to learn about Bitcoin and for those who think they already know all about it. It offers accurate, university-style courses and materials that are of academia-quality. Bitcoin SV Academy is starting off with three course streams: Bitcoin Theory, Bitcoin Development and Bitcoin Infrastructure, which are offered at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels.
Just like any educational course, a culminating assessment will be given to test the students’ understanding and knowledge of Bitcoin. Once students pass this exam, they will earn a certification. Enrolment is open for the introductory module of the Bitcoin Theory stream, with the course able to be taken at your own pace and in your own time.
Why Learn about Bitcoin?
This is probably the question everybody who is not familiar with Bitcoin is asking. Bitcoin SV is not a mere cryptocurrency used as a payment system or as digital gold. Rather, it is an entirely innovative technology upon which an unlimited number of platforms can be developed and built. And this is why it has to be studied—in order to gain full knowledge of its capabilities and understand how to utilize it to the maximum.
“The most important piece of infrastructure that Bitcoin can have is access and availability of education—not only does it broaden the pool of talent available to work and build with Bitcoin, but it also helps to spread awareness of what Bitcoin as an entire technology system can do and is truly capable of,” Technical Director of the Bitcoin SV infrastructure team Steve Shadders says.
