We set up a Metamask wallet and explore the Decentraland world to practically introduce and understand tokens and NFTs.

“My experience of this course was one to remember, each class was a learning experience with some challenges, some examples where trying to comprehend the different between proof of work vs proof of stake, or even the blockchain, with little things like nodes being the primary function of the software. All broken down with great explanations and with that I was able to understand in great depth. Being a part of this course has helped me tremendously with the fundamentals of blockchain and how it’s being used and how far it’s potential will go for the coming years.” –Reuben Saba
Most of the content of the Metaverse and Web3 course was new knowledge for me. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and sometimes made me think outside the box. I loved the presentation and the quizzes and the explanations were super helpful and the sessions had a great sense of humour. The questions/ comments made by others made us think and made the sessions more engaging. So grateful to be a part of this course and for the opportunity to learn from the guest speakers/ experts in the field! Thank you very much for everything! – Afsha Hossain
I learnt a great deal in my Metaverse course. I was taken through the fundamentals surrounding data and how important it is for it to be secure. The structure was well designed and the pace just right. The enthusiasm shown by everyone behind this course was a reason why I completed to the end. I would highly recommend this study to anyone with an interest in possible futures. – Chris Ighodaro
