The courses, including all reviews, are offered for free and are available through Saxion University to anyone around the world interested in Bitcoin.
“What is Bitcoin and why is it important?” is the first of four planned MOOCs that will be created in collaboration between the Bitcoin Association and Saxion University. Future courses should build on the knowledge acquired in previous courses and be part of an advanced curriculum that continually addresses more technically advanced content.
Learners can progress through the class at their own time and pace. At the end of each course, participants are asked to complete an assessment to demonstrate their expertise. Upon successful completion, a course certificate from the University of Saxion is available.
The series of MOOCs is taught with an emphasis on Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision), a restoration of the original Bitcoin protocol prescribed by creator Satoshi Nakamoto. As Satoshi had envisioned, the Bitcoin SV network can be scaled indefinitely, which enables high transaction throughput with minimal fees (the average cost of sending a transaction on the Bitcoin SV network in 2020 was less than 1/100 US cent ) and a large number of companies enable data functionalities that are unique to the blockchain.
