When you hear everybody and their brother (and my husband Jordan!) talking about Bitcoin, are you up on the lingo, or do you feel like your grandmother when the conversation turns to apps? Do you wonder, “Are they really coins? Why do I keep hearing about mining? Are they searching for tiny bit-sized coins???”
Here is a free course to walk you through exactly what this new money concept is all about. In 10 hours you’ll learn the “basics of Bitcoin for beginners: Bitcoin economics, investment, philosophy, and history, as well as its technical and practical components.”
Soon you’ll be able to dazzle your friends with your knowledge about how “Bitcoins are transferable digital tokens that are created on the Bitcoin network in a process known as mining.” Ok, I got that from the catalog lol! I haven’t done the course yet, but it makes me want to! Plus it’s FREE as part of the Saylor Academy. They offer free college courses online. Everything from Art History to Sociology, and all FREE. I may not be Bitcoin savvy (yet!) but I know free is good!
Does anybody want to take this course with me?? Lmk! We can have a discussion group!
