| About Your Instructor:

Elliot Friedman has been involved in cryptocurrencies since 2014 when he first became aware of this new asset class. Elliot is very excited about the potential for blockchain technology and the industries it can disrupt. He has a background in the C Programming Language that makes learning new blockchain frameworks easy. He is specifically interested in smart contracts, and privacy oriented cryptocurrencies as he believes corporations should not get to mine and collect consumer’s financial data. He has built blockchains in C, Python, and Javascript. He is currently reviewing source code from a new DAG that allows users to create smart contracts on top of a private chain.
