The London School of Economics (LSE) is following the cryptocurrency and blockchain trend with the launch of a new course promising “practical skills to interact with cryptocurrency exchanges”.

Back to school: LSE offers cryptocurrency and blockchain course

The six-week certificate programme titled ‘Cryptocurrency Investment and Disruption‘ begins in August and promises to explore blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies within the context of the economy and the effect on business.

The online course does not require any prerequisites from its students, but it will set them back around £1,800 in exchange for enough “theoretical and practical knowledge to become an active participant and investor in cryptocurrency markets”.

For those looking for a more academic way in to the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain, the course should provide a grounding into the explosive growth and hyper volatility of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as well as the distributed ledger technology that underpins them. Participants will also learn how to use wallets and evaluate the analytics of an initial coin offering (ICO).

So, while you should expect to understand the cryptoasset world don’t expect any investing advice.
