Money, like mathematics, is a uniquely human creation. Thousands of years ago, we invented it and we haven’t stopped evolving it since. Money is basically anything that is accepted as a form of payment for products and services.

Today, how we pay for things continues to evolve. But the link back to traditional financial institutions has remained largely the same. However, there’s a rapid emergence of digital products and we’re seeing the digitization of money as well.

Cryptocurrency is a new class of digital currencies that are decentralized and use cryptography to function. It looks like we are in the early days of a possible new revolution in how money is created, stored, and used.

If you’re curious about the basics of what cryptocurrency is, then this course is for you.
