More mainstream global money movements are on the rise, flowing through a mix of blockchain-era stable-money services that operate along a centralization-to-decentralization spectrum. During this session we will look under the hood of Bitcoin core and compare it with the new cryptocurrency of Facebook's Libra core software client.

What will students learn?
You'll learn the fundamentals of Bitcoin Core and gain a greater understanding about the new digital asset of Libra Core's validator nodes and governance model.

This course is appropriate for people new to the industry and professionals, with an appetite for code, as well as current and aspiring developers who want to understand how Libra and bitcoin core differ.
