arrow Why do this course?

Blockchain solves the problem of manipulation. In the West, people say they trust Google, Facebook, or their banks. But the rest of the world doesn’t trust organizations and corporations that much — Africa, India, Eastern Europe, or Russia. It’s not about the places where people are really rich. Blockchain’s opportunities are the highest in the countries that haven’t reached that level yet.

By allowing digital information to be distributed but not copied, blockchain technology has created the backbone of a new type of internet. Originally devised for the digital currency, Bitcoin, the tech community is now finding other potential uses for the technology. Join this course to understand blockchain’s true potential.

arrow FAQ

The Blockchain is a technology based on the virtual digitized decentralized network with “blocks” of information. When you add any information in the network (e. g. transaction), you add it in all computers in the network. But if another user in this network adds his information and make a new block after yours, you can’t modify your block. However, you can edit your block if you make it editing from all computers in the network and make similar changes in one moment only. It makes Blockchain one of the best technology for saving and structure information.

Blockchain technology refers to a distributed database for all the digital transactions, which eliminates the need for the third party to authenticate the transactions. In recent years several consumers, institutions, and organizations are adopting blockchain technology as it not only reduces the transaction cost as it removes a point of verification but also speeds up the actual transaction process. Analysts anticipate that the global blockchain technology market will witness a spike in demand as it is known to reduce the risks related to frauds and identity thefts. Citing this reason, financial institutions are exploring options of collaborating with blockchain startups as well as investing in their research and development projects. The proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) across various industries is also expected to play a crucial part in the uptake of these technologies.

The self-regulatory mechanism of the blockchain is called “distributed consensus”. The reason for that name is two-fold:

  1. The blockchain is a distributed system that consists of many independently acting computer nodes that maintain their own copy of the whole history of (transaction) data, hence the term “distributed”.
  2. The nodes of the system have to agree on one version of the whole history of (transaction) data, hence the term “consensus”.

  Distributed consensus is nothing that can be explained in two or three sentences. It is actually a very complex subject. The major idea of the blockchain is to achieve distributed consensus in a fashion similar to an ongoing democratic vote. Each node takes part in the vote about the content of the data history in two ways:

  1. by adding new data to the collectively maintained history of data by submitting a new block to all other nodes of the system
  2. by reviewing the nodes that were submitted by other nodes.

The blockchain uses a fine-tuned mechanism of rewards, incentives and punishment in order to ensure that the nodes behave correctly, that means that they monitor, supervise and regulate themselves.

Yes you can. Our course doesn’t require a prior knowledge of programming.

One of the best ways to start is to pick a framework like ethereum and perform buy and sell transactions. For more questions you can email us at ml@mcal.in

Blockchain technologies are generally cross platform. We have trained students with different operating systems like Windows, Mac, Linux, Ubuntu etc. If your machine has 4GB of RAM and a free space of 0.5 GB on your hard disk, you are good to go. One more thing we recommend is a Mic. You will use it to interact with the instructor during the live classroom sessions. However if you don’t have a mic, you can still attend the course and use the chat feature of our online classroom.

Yes. Before the training starts we send out a detailed step by step guide on what to do before your first class. Our handbook will give all the links, resources and guide necessary to install the relevant software on all the popular operating systems. It takes about 15 minutes to go through the instructions and make the necessary installations before the class starts. Sometimes students face issues installing and we help them get over their issue. In short you will not have any issue in getting setup before the training starts.

Our instructors are professionals with many years of experience and are currently working on live blockchain projects. Our instructors not only bring the knowledge of blockchain to the course but with specially crafted assignments bring the latest and greatest in this field.

The typical duration of the course is 5-6 Weeks. It's the right amount of time that lets you absorb the theory and do the practice exercises. This structure is best suited to absorb the challenging concepts of blockchain, bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, ethereum and other frameworks.

The course will have 3 types of hands on activities:

  1. The instructor will do exercises in the classes live to show key concepts
  2. During the live classroom the instructor will give out assignments to students and have them work on it. Students are asked to present their solution to other students during these exercise which further bolsters the understanding of the student
  3. We give detailed and well researched home assignments that students work on during the week to revise the concepts taught in the class.

I am a working professional, is this course taught in weekends? Yes this course is designed with working professionals in mind. It is conducted on weekends to make sure that it doesn’t interfere with the existing work schedule of working professionals. The live classroom sessions are conducted on Saturday and Sunday.

While we like all of our students to attend all the sessions, sometimes there are are some students that are not able to attend one or two class. We make sure we record all our sessions in high definition and share the videos in our state of the art learning management system for them to access it for lifetime. Together with session videos we will also share home assignments, handouts and other reference materials for you to keep and use for your life time.

All our classroom sessions are recorded in high definition. The session videos are processed in our state of the art lab and made available to students for them to keep for lifetime. Together with session videos we will also share home assignments, handouts and other reference materials for you to keep and use for your life time

When the instructor is giving the lecture to the class, the session will be recorded. After the class the recorded video will be uploaded to our state of the art e-learning portal and its access will be given to you for lifetime. Together with session videos we will also share home assignments, handouts and other reference materials for you to keep and use for your life time.

We have an award winning and popular infographic resume builder. Its very easy to use and its premium features are available to our students free of charge. Using our resume builder you can create stunning resumes. You can view some samples using the following link: https://resume.mcalglobal.com/socialresume/user/signup.htm

We constantly update our training course. We make sure to share those with our old students so that they are updated with the latest changes in the course. We have a blog where we put valuable material for our community to use and benefit from. You can access our blog at: https://www.mcalglobal.com/blog/ We have created a Facebook group for our course and we give exclusive access to it for our students. Anyone can ask any question they have and the whole community helps out. You can request to join our Facebook group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/mcalglobal

We do create separate batches for groups. Sometimes there are working professionals who would like to have the timings tweaked to fit their needs. There are companies we train who like to have a customized curriculum created to suit their needs. If you have any customized need, we urge you to contact us at ml@mcal.in so that we talk and look for ways to best serve you.
