Start Introducing blockchain and cryptocurrency related Course and Projects

Codecademy need to be innovative otherwise it won’t attract the potential users or existing membership users !!!

  1. Start Introducing BLOCKCHAIN and CRYPTOCURRENCY related Course and Project

  2. Start Accepting USDT or Crypto as method of payments

  3. Creating interesting projects regarding Blockchain projects, such as Cryptopunks or any Ethereum based blockchain projects

Please consider

This is a really good idea. Would be cool to see that implemented.

i just came on here to suggest the same thing. Crypto and blockchain is what i want to learn.

This man right here, speaking the truth

We are waiting for some steps from the code academy :slightly_smiling_face:

I am new with my course blockchain and cryptocurrency… it’s really good idea.

Those kinds of services are really demanded right now. So, it’s an excellent idea to provide introductory courses for those who want to learn about blockchains and cryptocurrencies. Many people would like to invest in this sector. But they’re afraid to take this risk because of the lack of knowledge. I think that guidelines like - learn forex trading step by step also were highly demanded when forex trading became new but gained popularity quickly. You probably might use this as a layout for your course and apply some ideas to your project.

There are already a few blockchain courses, specifically an “Intro to Blockchain in Python” that goes over the basic technical features of a blockchain and how to build one. They are either buried in the Catalog or removed since I last took one.

The problem with blockchain/crypto courses is that to understand them from a developer’s perspective takes a fairly advanced understanding of several other concepts. It definitely isn’t a beginner-friendly topic to cover, and even less so with the regulations coming down the pipeline. Building a blockchain developer course is more complex than writing a course on web development or data analysis because someone taking the course and building their own cryptocurrency can find themselves in pretty serious legal & financial trouble if they aren’t careful, and I don’t see Codecademy wanting to risk the ramifications of that.

With that being said, a lot of the fundamentals of blockchain tech are captured in the Computer Science course, because ultimately blockchain is just a set of technologies built off of those fundamental concepts. It adds a few more concepts and complexities, but the Comp. Sci. course is a really good starting point for understanding blockchain tech.
