The Diploma in Blockchain is aimed at the skills gap in the evaluation of enterprise grade Blockchain solutions, the evolution of digital currencies, and the tokenisation of assets. This is important to the learner as it goes beyond exploring the open decentralised Blockchain upon which many cryptocurrencies are based, by introducing them to the added levels of privacy and security that are the cornerstone of many of the centralised enterprise grade Blockchain solutions.The blockchain diploma provides learners with the requisite skills to analyse the contemporary business development challenges of Blockchain adoption through a mixture of underlying conceptual and applied practical leaning outcomes.
