Find out how to understand its challenges thanks to the École Polytechnique Executive Education which provides the first certification training, Blockchain Starter Program.
Media coverage and the rapid growth of cryptocurrencies have brought blockchain into the limelight.

The leaders of this course, Daniel Augot and Julien Prat, both professor-researchers at the École Polytechnique, are also co-directors of the Blockchain & B2B Platforms chair at the École Polytechnique.
In addition to being aimed at a wide audience (industry leaders, consultants, representatives of the IT, finance or innovation professions, for example), this program allows you to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to implement new features around the blockchain. Participants will address the legal, economic and technological issues of the blockchain. This is an opportunity to evaluate the potential of this new technology in a professional context.
Based for example on the use case of the very first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, students will understand the added value and contributions of the blockchain in its functioning.
