hi will this be recorded?
Nathan Samson
25:43
Will people who take and pay for the class on Coursera be able to access the new and updated resources you provide after they have completed the class so their knowledge stays relevant and up to date?
Justin Chen
26:00
I’m assuming everything (all projects) is going to be on the Ethereum blockchain is that correct?
Syeda
28:41
Is this course still appropriate and available for a person that has an undergraduate degree in an unrelated subject (such as a liberal arts degree)?
Jennifer Sta Maria
28:51
what are the courses offered by coursera?
Summer Thorn
31:43
CPA here, currently bored to death by my job as an internal auditor. I want to transition into the fintech space, but am not sure how to make that jump. Any advice?
Nishant Tacheth
32:15
As this course is majorly dedicated to FInance , I am wondering after we complete the course; would we be capable of using Blockchain platforms for other non-finance usage ? As I read blockchain can be used in many other business areas ?
Peggy
32:34
How long does it take to finish the whole courses?
Michael Lord
33:10
Second the Summer Thorn question.
Nathan Samson
33:51
Does the time in the class involve any chance to network with lots of blockchain industry insiders?
Justin Chen
35:06
Can I ask again about what platform we’re using? I know “blockchain” is being used a lot, but the smart contract/wallet/etc. seems pretty geared towards Ethereum. Is that the primary blockchain we’re working with?
Ed Sandler
35:28
how much programming knowledge is required? how much of the program is programming oriented?

VENKATESH V

would Block chain be applicable at present in emerging markets as much as in developed markets ? or are we behind in the curve ?
Nathan Samson
37:01
How does the transition from taking the course on Coursera transition into the full masters in fintech program at Duke? Would there be any admissions advantages or benefits?
Patrick Tupa
37:11
I am a commercial Real-Estate broker. Where do you see smart contract integration with real-estate?
Syeda
38:28
Thank you very much-that makes me feel much better :)
Nathan Samson
39:09
And also would you say the Masters program at Duke would be a big help to someone who wants to get involved in the blockchain space or would almost all of the benefits stay similar to if we chose to only take the course?
