I've gained a strong knowledge of Bitcoin's architecture but wish this course was updated to include the developments of the last two years. A few lectures on alt-coins would have been useful as well.

Great course, a very broad and in-depth overview of concepts surrounding cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin in particular. Would be great to have an update of course; perhaps once the ICO craze is over? (-:

Interesting course. Good points: material is interesting and comprehensive, lecturers are knowledgeable. Not so good points: assignment specifications and test code is poor (or non-existent).

Good overview of crypto currency. The programming assignments are interesting (can help if there is some support on the forum). overall good program for someone wanting to learn blockchain

The theory part is quite good: you get a rather strong in-detail understanding of the technology behind Bitcoin. The Java programming assignments, however, are an organizational disaster.

There is quite a bit of material within this course. Having the supplementary book and Princeton online material helped substantially especially when debugging the assignments.

I feel this course to be very interesting. However, the programming tasks can be a little bit difficult to understand, thanks to the debate forums that was much easier. Thanks

Good course but I found it a little difficult to follow. The prof. speaks very fast. It becomes a little uneasy to follow the slides and I need to pause the video frequently.

Would have been much better if more coding problems & assignments were there in Python similar to Udacity.
Current course is more of theory based rather than practical.

Great course the amount of info i learnt from this as well as the cryptocurrency talks @thebandwidthbarn makes this worth while, note you need some java dev skills

Assignment code is a little unclear, and could be better documented, providing unit tests to the students could also help improve the quality of the submissions

Somewhat dated material, and some decidedly poorly written assignments. However, all in all, a very interesting class with some great, well taught fundamentals.

Great content but if you don't know how to code it's very difficult given direction given on the assignments. Need to have some computer science background.

Very good introduction into blockchain technology. Unfortunately no certificate and completion requires Java programming skills. Also a bit outdated (2018).

good !!! really enjoyed the programming bits. Also Loved the way crypto-currency economy is introduced, legality and technicality coverage is brilliant !!

The course was good. If you want to start with the bitcoin & Co this is one course to start with.
I wish that the code exercises will be more elaborated.

A very good introduction to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
Somes parts looked out of date, or at least would need to be update ! Thank you for all that !

Lessons 1- 8interesting and well organised, exercises are hard to nail and require commitment.
Latest part very rushed and superficial, irrelevant

Great course. Very well explained topics. The only criticism would be on lack of tests in coding tasks, and only one language supported. (Java)

The content and videos are good, but the programming assignments could really use some work to make them easier to understand and implement.

Overall it is a great course. Just think that the assignment could have been break into many smaller sections with a slower learning curve.

According to the pre-requisites, the course said we don't need any coding background, but the assignments were very much code-oriented

Course is a nice introduction, although a bit updated at the moment and more details about the bitcoin code itself could be given.

The tasks could have been broken in smaller pieces to make them more understandable. Course material (Videos) are understandable.

Excellent course!. Just 4 stars because it is becoming a bit outdated. Blockchain frenzy is to be blamed, not the teachers ;-)

Very nice course. I would have appreciate a treatment slightly more mathematical, but overall it is a great course.
