Bitcoin, virtual currency, cryptocurrency conceived and developed by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009, emerged as an alternative currency to the current ones, in a decentralized environment independent of politics. For years it has been a subject of curiosity especially for "geeks", however, over the years its use has been standardized and more and more, different companies and businesses accept it as a payment method. There is an entire economy around Bitcoin that allows you to buy and sell goods and services in Bitcoin outside of traditional financial circuits.
The transactions that are carried out through Bitcoin are carried out directly, without the need for any intermediary. In addition, it emphasizes that it is a decentralized currency, which means that there is no government that supports it. Instead, its way of operating is carried out through a proof of work system, in this way double spending is being prevented and consensus is reached among all those nodes that make up the network.
In this course, the basic knowledge necessary to buy, sell and use Bitcoin will be explained, but we will also see other practical applications since it is not only a currency but a technical tool that goes far beyond the concept of currency, it allows applications such as certifying the authorship of documents, secure electronic voting, email signing. We will see advantages, disadvantages, myths, as well as all the concepts that surround the Bitcoin world (hash, blockchain, sha256 algorithm, cryptocurrency, mining, wallet, wallet, blockchain.)

Yield FarmingObservationsThe course lasts two weeks in which the student and the teacher are in contact at all times.
The structure of the course is as follows:The students will have the complete documentation in PDF format, so that they can have it printed at the time of class and it will be easier for them to follow it.
On Tuesday there will be an online session from 8pm to 10pm, in which the slides corresponding to the current week will be explained in depth and practical examples of all the concepts studied will be given.
These sessions will be recorded and posted in the virtual classroom. In this way, if a student misses them or wants to see them again, they can do so at any time.
On Wednesday the student must have advanced in the study of the weekly documentation. All the doubts that may arise must be exposed in the "forum of doubts".
On Thursday there will be another online session from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., in which all the doubts published in the forum will be resolved and the study of the documentation will continue.
The rest of the week, the student can use it to work on the documentation and the "optional" practical exercises that will be made available to them. Any questions should be asked through the "Forum of doubts".
During the week all doubts raised through the forum will be resolved, so that all students can see them and learn from them.
