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.

As an introduction to cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin in particular the lectures were top quality, and I returned a number of times to watch certain parts again. Thank you for well prepared lectures and material. The java exercises I found a bit laborous and not exactly matching with the content of the lectures; for someone with a lot of experience in java probably easier, but as I saw in the forum discussions, many java programmers had difficulty finding their way to the solution as well.

Very good course, but be prepared to do some non-trivial java programming as part of the assignments.

Testing environment for coding assignments was difficult to use to troubleshoot programs for errors.

Very good course and good material.
The programming exercises are not too difficult, but the code setup given is not very easy to get into, and could use a clearer purpose and direction.
Could do with a credit exam as well.

Gives a good basic knowledge of how cryptocurrency works. Assigments were interesting, although in my opinion the first one could have a better description. I liked the grading system. Would be great if there were more of those assignments.

Course has very good content and well structured. However it lacks more details on the mechanics, under the hood functioning of Blockchains.
The practical assignments are not adequate. Propose more exercises that goes up in incremental content and difficulties and allow students to get more practical insight upon how a blockchain really works.

Great course about crypto-currency. With technical detail understanding and non-technical (ethical,...) considerations. If I may, I feel the assignments may be a turn-off for people that don't know how to code (Java) and assignments explainations could be improved.

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

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.

Assignments are disjointed and lectures a bit dated but great basics that are well presented

A very well designed course for entry level students

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.

The course is just amazing, the assignments on the other hand are much less: hard, grader issues ...

Good overview of the impact on society, also the principles and the technical details.

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.

I enjoyed this course. The point, is that I think this course could use a different environment, like datacamp, to receive the answers. In my situation, I have some difficulties, such as upload my class course assignment files and, if I was at datacamp, I wouldn't need to setup a java at my notebook and this is another point. I think the course could be in Python language, this is most common and we could be have an alternative languages instead only one.

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

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.

Havent done any programming part as it was too technical for me.Also was lost in same parts. But generally it is a great introduction. The biggets problem i see is that its developing so fast that it would need to do updates of the course almost every year

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.

This course has open my eye more on my new career is a bit stronge for beginners but you fit in into new world of global economy.
