Stanford to Offer Course in CryptoCurrency

As part of its new graduate certificate program in cybersecurity, Stanford University is offering a course titled, “Crypto Currencies: Bitcoin and Friends,” taught by TRUST researcher and Stanford Professor of Computer Science Dan Boneh and launching in September 2015. Boneh will also be extending the course online to professionals enrolled in the program.

Boneh and others in the field feel the time is right to develop on online course to help others learn about the opportunities and challenges created by virtual currencies, including Bitcoin. The course will explore ways to ensure that new payment technologies are designed to secure privacy while also protecting digital assets.
