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? (-:

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.

Should have more lesson about alt coins and develop a Blockchain. Also tell more about concurrences of blockchain (tangle, hashgraf and so on).
Should have explicit the need of java programming.

1 Very poor preparation of programming assignments
2 Poor preparation of video content (like switching to video from camera just to demonstrate laser pointer)

Good information even if it could be explained in a better manner. The labs are very poorly designed with vague requirements and poor grading logic.

It was very hard to figure out what is required to complete assessment tasks.
I did't find much correlation between lectures and practical tasks.

A good introduction, but could be better. The assignments' code is poorly documented and the assignments themselves are not clear.

A little dated (2014) and not enough technical detail, coverage a little too broad. Java homework exercises are great, though

Assignments were vague and too much time had to be spent on unnecessary things like browsing forums.

Good introduction to blockchain and cryptocurrency, simple and to the roots, to start to know.

I had troubles in understanding assignments. I think they should be more descriptive

Contents are referred to 2014 status of bitcoin and of the related topics.

The course covered a lot of things, but the programming assessments are very poor. In first the assessments the bonus task is basically not about blockchain, but rather about graphs. I would recommend adding to course more small coding assignments to get familiar with blockchain and bitcoin platform in a more practical way.

This was a tedious and boring course! the assignments were impossible to decipher and I fail to see the end result of the point of the coins. Wouldn't it make more sense to have some form of physical currency or bartering instead?

Lectures were extremely good, but assignments and graders were very low quality and difficult to decipher requirements from. Professors and TAs were not active in the forums.

Data from 2014 isn't useful in today's environment. Although fundamentals are clearly valid tpday, an update to course is mandatory

Not a big fan of this course. I wanted to learn about the different types of currencies and their usage, but these guys go way too deep into the code structure, even making the 1st assignment code based. Just because I am interested in cars, doesn't mean I necessarily have to know how to build one. I merely need to know some base facts, it's safety, handling, fuel economy, size etc. Their approach is way more mundane and impractical for daily needs of working with Cryptocurrencies, going way too deep into early theory and applications.
