BCIS 4750 - Blockchain for Business

3 hours

The course offers an introduction to Blockchain for business. Much like the internet in its early days, blockchain seems difficult to understand and forecast, but it could become pervasive in the exchange of payments, goods, services, information, and interactions between organizations. Beginning with the history of blockchain and it antecedents, we will explore the significance of blockchain in the marketplace starting with existing implementations like bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, emerging and probable applications, as well as the possibilities for the expanded use of blockchain in business, government, and not-for-profit organizations. Topics will include the strengths, weaknesses, and technical limitations of blockchain; its legal, regulatory, and governance implications; its potential to disrupt industries and organizations; and much more.

Prerequisite(s): None.

Meets with BCIS 5750.
