Animal Ventures teams up with Wired magazine to talk blockchain

Article by Tom Serres

Animal Ventures Co-Founder Bettina Warburg attempts to prove that even a 5-year-old can understand Blockchain. Recently, WIRED challenged us to explain blockchain to 5 different people; a child, a teen, a college student, a grad student, and an expert.

We gladly accepted.

In the spirit of learning, we have our newest Blockchain courses for you:

The World According to Blockchain:

We will provide an analytical framework through which to understand how decentralizing technologies are shaping our future. We look into the story of trade over time, and how Blockchain (with the help of AI and IoT) is affecting our current economy.

Technology Fundamentals of Blockchain:

From blockchain wallets to tokens — get the prerequisites for building Decentralized Applications. Students will learn how blockchain wallets and tokens function conceptually. Then, we will demonstrate installing a blockchain wallet and sending a test transaction as well!

Animal Ventures is releasing two new courses to add to its leading online Blockchain course, The Basics of Blockchain. Nearly 6,000 students have taken our course from 111 different countries — a course designed initially to help beginners wrap their mind around this dizzying and mind-bending technology.

Our new courses introduce our upcoming “Survive” and “Thrive” series. They will cover everything from token offerings and smart contracts to actually getting your hands dirty with some decentralized application development. These are the first two of this series so stay tuned!
