The Bitcoin price surge has led to an extreme hype around blockchain technology.
However, blockchain technology is much more than just a technological framework for
Bitcoin. It enables new applications in finance, art, community management, and in the
Metaverse. This module enables students to explore the technical and economic
foundations of blockchains. In the first part, students will gain a thorough understanding
of the technology, the economics of blockchains, and the thriving Swiss blockchain
ecosystem. In the second part, students will deep-dive into current hot topics such as
NFTs, DAOs, blockchain gaming, and many more. In this module, students work in
interdisciplinary teams to study different blockchain application fields.
