The Blockchain Turkey Platform (BCTR) aims to organize regular training on conceptual, technical and applied subjects. Trainers who are experts in their fields will lead these programs, which aim to increase the number of people proficient enough in this technology to both identify problems in their sectors that blockchains can resolve and lead projects to develop associated solutions.
The schedule of training programs, including their purpose, content and trainer, will be published on the BCTR website and announced to all BCTR bulletin subscribers by email. Please fill in the form below if you wish to subscribe to our email bulletin and receive advance notice of all new training programs.
Everything you need to know about what blockchain is, how it works, and how you can get started building a blockchain network today.
Understand exactly what a blockchain is, its impact and potential for change around the world, and analyze use cases in technology, business, and enterprise products and institutions.
About this course
Blockchain technology is changing how business is executed. It’s important to understand why blockchain is different and how it works in comparison with technologies of the past.
The first segment of this course covers all the main concepts of what Blockchain is. It discusses how it began as a triple ledger system first introduced for the administration of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, and how it is now applied to all aspects of business including government, banking, supply chains, and a host of other industries.
It also analyzes the concept of transparent ledgers, both public and permissioned, and focuses on using cryptography to achieve consensus, immutability, and governance of transactions. This is all part of Blockchain’s ability to provide “trusted data from untrusted sources,” disrupting traditional accounting methodologies and international trade.
The course then dives into the various methods of blockchain governance that currently exist in the marketplace as well as how consensus fits into governance. It explores how to reach consensus through proof-of-work or proof-of-stake.
Other aspects of the course include examining the very specific features of blockchain that solve problems that have been difficult to overcome in the past with more centralized architectures.
The final part of the course takes a deep dive into the various use cases of blockchain, complete with analyzing real examples of how different industries are executing the technology and improving their business. Examining a problem, and then depicting a blockchain use case that solves the problem, will help gain an understanding of how blockchain is applied to real-world situations.

About this course
This course is the definitive introduction to blockchain for both the developer and non-developer audience. Beyond the technology, this course will introduce you to some of the philosophy behind decentralization and why there is so much excitement around it. During the first three modules, you’ll be introduced to blockchain and the technology behind it. In module four, we’ll go beyond bitcoin and delve deeper into a next-generation blockchain called Ethereum to introduce you to what modern blockchains can do. The use cases featured in the final module are drawn from among the businesses in ConsenSys’ startup portfolio. We believe we’re uniquely positioned to present you with a valuable behind-the-scenes look at the people and companies working in this space to help give you a better understanding of the business side of blockchain. Together, we’ll examine businesses use cases, hear from industry leaders, and give you the opportunity to develop and analyze a use case yourself.
With this course, not only will you be the one who is able to explain blockchain to your colleagues, you’ll be well on your way to making educated business decisions with your new, foundational understanding of the technology.
