Free Online Course on Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies
Bitcoin Magazine has a story about Princeton's Bitcoin MOOC on Coursera that starts September 4th. It's taught by Professor Arvind Narayanan of the Princeton Computer Science, along with Joe Bonneau, Ed Felten, and Andrew Miller. The course focuses on the computer science behind Bitcoin; it cuts through the hype and gets to the core of what makes Bitcoin unique.
The course is accompanied by a new textbook, Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies, to be published by Princeton University Press but now available free on-line as a pre-release draft.
