UC Berkeley Launches a Blockchain Fundamentals Program on edX

The average salary of a blockchain engineer in Silicon Valley is $158,000, while blockchain-related jobs are the second fastest growing in today’s labor market, with 14 job openings for every blockchain developer.

Responding to this demand of blockchain talent, UC Berkeley is releasing on July 9 at edx.org a 6-week Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies course, as the first online class of the Blockchain Fundamentals professional certificate program.

This program, one of the most popular at the UC Berkeley campus and intended for students with no background in computer science, provides an understanding of how the blockchain and systems that are built on it, like Bitcoin, work.
