    "the curriculum’s most valuable component was the active discussions behind actual crypto Use Case examples"

            I cannot overstate the critical elements of both insight and understanding that Jarrett provided me – two things that will undoubtedly serve me as an Information Technology professional and a solution designer with lots of use cases in his head! From debunking common myths and misconceptions, to the mechanics of wallets and exchanges and tokens

            I highly enjoyed Jarrett’s Cryptocurrency Foundations course. Not only did it provide a thorough introduction of the topic but the course was practical as well. Jarrett walked us through the various exchanges, opened wallets and analyzed whitepapers. It was a wonderful course!

            The cryptocurrencies foundation course was very helpful since it takes every branch of the crypto world and breaks it down so everyone can understand the basics of the whole. Jarret was an excellent prof, knowing very precisely when and how to do a certain approach so we could take the very best of each topic, also open to answer every question
