This 90 minute session designed to prepare you to study for and take the Certified Bitcoin Professional Exam (CBP). For those new to the industry, this will be your introductory course to blockchain related topics. You'll then attend other sessions to learn more and reinforce the topics covered here. If you've been into blockchains for awhile, this course is the perfect refresher and preparation course before you take your CBP examination. As a reminder, the cost of the exam is included with your ticket to BTC2019.

In the CBP prep series, you'll learn about:
  • The history of money, bitcoin, and how the price of bitcoin is derived. 
  • Basic cryptographic terms, hash functions, encryption, and digital signatures.
  • Bitcoin Basics, including addresses and keys, transactions, the blockchain, bitcoin as a unit (e.g. millibt, satoshi), ways to earn, buy, sell, and store bitcoin, blockchain explorers and Unspent Transaction Outputs (UTXO). 
  • Bitcoin wallets, specifically: wallet types (hot/cold, paper, hardware, multi-sig, etc) bitcoin clients, and wallet backup/recovery.
  • Bitcoin commerce, including how to accept bitcoin for products and services

This course is appropriate for people new to the industry, professionals, and aspiring blockchain developers who do not yet understand the basics of Bitcoin.
