With 21 Lectures, two board members of the Bitcoin Association Switzerland are taking the Bitcoin education in Switzerland to the next level. Education, and through that getting more developers to contribute to open source Bitcoin projects, has always been one of our main goals. We invited some of the most well-known experts from all around the world to speak in Zurich, but there is only so much you can learn from one talk in the evening.

At the our 21 Lectures courses attendees will learn the essential knowledge about Bitcoin & related technologies. We cover cryptography, the structure of transactions and blocks and how they are chained, smart contract language, the Lightning protocol as well as software and toolkits to develop on top of the block chain and Lightning.

You will learn directly from world-renowned specialists such as Lightning protocol co-designer Dr. Christian Decker, Bitcoin Core Maintainer Jonas Schnelli, Libbitcoin contributor James Chiang, as well as from the practical experience in developing Bitcoin software from the Shift Cryptosecurity AG (Digital Bitbox) with Marko Bencun, Kaspar Etter and Henrik Jonsson.

The 21 Lectures courses are made possible thanks to the support of our ecosystem partner Xapo.
