“I came in and was absolutely blown away by the amount of coverage and in-depth analysis that was explained throughout this summer. From blockchain analysis, to central bank responsibilities to the remittances market, it’s evident that much care was involved in designing the curriculum as it relates to budding financial service professionals interested in incorporating bitcoin into our modern economy. Thanks a bunch guys!”
Michael Mendonca
“This subject was very interesting and taught with passion. A nice change from normal University lectures.”
Rupert Hackett
“Having completed numerous online courses, free and otherwise, from top schools around the world including Thunderbird, Stanford, MIT, Edinburgh and others, I feel I am qualified to say that this course in terms of effect, design, breadth and depth is among the best on the world, and most definitely raised the bar in many regards, perhaps the most significant being the visionary boldness and innovative in taking on the challenge of high quality instruction in the emerging field of digital currencies. I am proud to say I was there when academic history was made.”
Philip Dursey
“I believe that the high success rate of this course has to do with the fact that a large number of people enrolled due to their genuine interest to find out more about the exciting world of cryptocurrencies and not just to add another certificate on their CV, and also because the course was so well structured, presented and highly interactive that it maintained and even managed to intensify this interest from start to completion.

As an asset manager, I have been intrigued by the potential of cryptocurrencies as an evolving asset class and its future importance in my work, as well as the significant role they will come to play in our everyday lives. For me there was no better way to find out more about this fascinating area than taking this course and learning firsthand about it from pioneers in the field such as Andreas Antonopoulos and Antonis Polemitis.”

“I highly recommend this course for anyone interested in the business and technical aspects of digital currency. The two professors, Antonis Polemitis and Andreas Antonopoulos bring amazing depth to the course whether you are interested in the softer business attributes of digital currency or the hard coding aspects of digital currency. The Introduction to Digital Currencies MOOC has quickly established itself as the authority for all things digital currency.”
J.R. Sedivy
“It has been a great experience to be part of this first ever MOOC in Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technology. Keeping track of all subjects and concepts proposed by this fabulous teaching team, has made more understandable this new exciting innovation to a person like me (50 years old with no previous background in computer tech, or the world of finances).

Taking part in this master’s degree has opened my mind further to the idea that whatever the future brings, Blockchain technologies will be part of it, directly or indirectly, as long as the Internet or a similar communication transport exists. The way all these technologies involved in Bitcoin are put together, to match a service that anyone can freely use around the world, able of avoiding the use of a centralized third party as a means of trust, is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever tried to understand.”

Javier Asís
“This DFIN 511 MOOC course completely surprised me with its depth and the overall completeness of its coverage of Digital Currency. My knowledge base of this new and emerging subject increased exponentially! What this course also handles well is the rapid changing climate of Digital Currency. Using a platform with multi educational tools, as professors, you are able to adapt to real time events and map those onto the course material! Bravo. I have already recommended this course to others and will continue to do so.”
Lisa Jaya Waters
“Excellent course, both for the quality of the teaching and the resources available in the platform. I highly recommend the great experience of this ‘cutting edge program’ to beginners who are moving the first steps in the world of cryptocurrencies, as well as to professionists and academic researchers who need to acquire an in-depth knowledge in this area. I will definitely continue with course in September.”
Marcell Atzori, Ph.D
“Thank you all at University of Nicosia for putting together such an amazing introduction to this brave new world of digital currencies! For me being an economist with major interest on Monetary Economics was a great experience, and learned a lot.

I hope I can contribute in the developing of this subject from an academic point of view and practical uses of the blockchain (which for me is the great development behind digital currencies).”
