Autumn 2023

This course comprises 4 lectures: Fundamentals of cryptography, Fundamentals of blockchain, Tokens and tokenization and Blockchain pros, cons and tradeoffs. It is relatively non-technical and is designed to be a self-contained guide to the basics of the blockchain and digital asset world in the early 2020s. It is liberally sprinkled with hyperlinks and references to resources I have found useful and which should be accessible to undergraduates with some intellectual maturity. The slides have been presented in various forms to various groups. They soon will be complemented with more applied materials on smart contracts and analyzing blockchain data.
