Blockchain is a system in which data is encoded in the blocks linked by chains, these chains make the transfer of information secure.

It is easier to understand Blockchain than one might think at first. Blockchain is said to be decentralized as it does not require intermediaries and is controlled through multiple nodes that make it impossible to lose information. The advantage of this system is that even if the network is down, the information will not be lost as long as the node remains active.

Cryptocurrency and the economic sector have been the most popular aspects of blockchain, Bitcoin gave it the prominence it enjoys today. Bitcoin is possibly the most publicly transcended element of the many possibilities provided by blockchain technology. Bitcoin is the best-known and most influential cryptocurrency. However, the advent of the blockchain has not just revolutionized the economy but many other areas as well.

Blockchain makes it possible to store data and add more information to a chain over time, these data cannot be modified or revised and are transmitted through the links in the chain. All this can be done thanks to the use of algorithms established by the participating nodes.

The Master’s Degree in Blockchain at the University of Salamanca provides students with a highly demanded professional profile, given the importance that this technological paradigm is acquiring. Students will learn about computer models used in Smart contracts, cryptocurrency, blockchain, etc. Upon completing this course, they will be experts in the technology of the future.
