Blockchain Revolution for the Enterprise
Don and his son, Alex Tapscott, teach the Massive Open Online Course Blockchain Revolution for the Enterprise, designed in partnership with INSEAD and Coursera. This four-course Specialization introduces learners to the world of blockchain technology—explaining what blockchain is, how it works, and why it’s revolutionary. Learners are taught various categories of cryptoassets, and the ways they can be transacted on a blockchain. You will learn how blockchain is disrupting business models and financial services, offering organizations new choices in how they create and manage value.
Early in 2020, a second specialization was released, this one directed to the financial services industry. This specialization is based on insights provided by Financial Services Revolution, an in-depth compilation of exclusive Blockchain Research Institute research from the world’s foremost thought leaders.
Blockchain Revolution Global
Co-hosted by the Blockchain Research Institute, a global independent blockchain think-tank, and MCI Group, the world’s largest event management company, BRG will educate, inspire, and prepare leaders to be part of the revolutionary transformation that blockchain technology is bringing to business, government, and society.
Don, as Executive Chairman of the Blockchain Research Institute, leads this initiative, bringing together thought leaders from around the world to educate the conference’s audience on what is being done in blockchain, and where the technology could go.
