This program has been set up in cooperation with the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center which is a think tank and research center which investigates implications of the blockchain technology for companies and their business models.
What’s Certified Blockchain Expert ?
The course delivers an insight into the Ethereum and Hyperledger platforms among others; you will develop your understanding of the full range of potential blockchain use cases and business models. As more and more blockchain based applications evolve, an in-depth knowledge of the underlying technologies is becoming indispensable. Equipped with this knowledge, you can leverage blockchain opportunities to build your company’s digital future.
Why Certified Blockchain Expert ?
The Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is the first university in Germany to offer blockchain-based certificates. With this new technology, it is possible to create fraud-resistant certificates and statements. One can also make them permanently available without restriction – and in compliance with data regulations. For this pilot project, the business school cooperates with Consensys, one of the leading software companies in the field of blockchain. Consensys developed a decentralized app (dApp) for so-called “Self- Sovereign Identities“: An identity created by the user that is stored on the blockchain and thus tamper-proof. Data and degrees can be administered by the user.
