Why learn Designing Blockchain Solutions

Australia is currently facing a blockchain skills shortage. "From financial services and oil and gas, to mining and government, the potential is huge, and we are already seeing the real world applications for blockchain across many industries.  However, to move the technology forward and get to the next stage, we need the talent." John Harris, Managing Director Financial Services Technology Consulting, Accenture.

Designing Blockchain Solutions is an industry-approved short course, developed in partnership with Accenture and Stone & Chalk.
