In order to understand the future of money, it’s necessary to understand the history of money. In this course we’ll answer what money is, the functions it fulfills and how that’s changed over time. We’ll explore how we went from using shells to gold to paper, and now, to Bitcoin.
This is a non-technical, introductory level course and suitable for those without prior knowledge of economics, finance or monetary history.
If you are interested in learning about these topics in-depth we highly recommend The Bitcoin Standard Book by Saifedean Ammous. We admire his work and he inspired us to teach about the history of money.
This course consists of approximately 5 hours of content including video lessons, assigned readings and homework activities.
