(*) Program starts on November 12th by a one week online introduction, followed by two weeks in Hong Kong and one final week online report.
Blockchain technology is about to disrupt the old economy and transform our vision of business. Brought in the light by the explosion of the cryptocurrency market (global market cap over US$ 200 billion early September 2018), this technology is proliferating and offers great potential for many industries and services. The program is designed to explore the basic and advanced properties of Blockchain technology, to recognize how Bitcoin and other crypto use these properties in their ecosystem and to ultimately understand the power of disruption that is shaking the business conventional rules.
Why NeXperience program?
“Knowledge is nothing without experience” is the motto of this program.
Accessing a wide range of materials is only the foundation layer. In order to develop your skills, you will work in small groups on several use cases. In a domain with such an extent of works, applications and opinions, research and collaboration are key to success.
During the two weeks in Hong Kong, you will also share the perspective of influential professionals who use the blockchain technology and create the solutions of tomorrow.
You will also have the opportunity to participate in networking sessions and develop fruitful contacts for the future. Finally, during the last week of the program, you will apply your experience and knowledge to your own project. The best pieces of work will be published on NexStep Network (NSN).
The four-week program is built over three periods:
Week 1: One week to prepare…
At the beginning of the week, you will receive documents and links to materials. This will help you to build up a first level of general knowledge on blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.
By the middle of the week, a quizz will be sent for you to return before your arrival in Hong Kong. The results of the quizz will be discussed during the Hong Kong part.
Week 2 & 3: Two weeks to experience Hong Kong…
During the first week in Hong Kong, you will be broadly introduced to all the properties that make Blockchain a promising technology and how it is underpinning the main cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin and Ethereum). The second week will focus on Blockchain’s power of disruption in a business strategy approach.
You will contribute to four working groups by analyzing use cases and learning from experience. Lastly, you will build you own project or research.
Week 4: A last week to explore…
The last week is dedicated to your own project. Whether is to deepen your knowledge on a particular application of Blockchain or to work on your own case, we will give you the framework that will allow you to perform a professional piece of work that will enhance your skills and abilities.
