UBC Micro-certificate in Blockchain Innovation and Implementation



Champion Blockchain with Confidence

Blockchain is an emerging, but rapidly evolving technology that offers trust, transparency, traceability, accountability and immutability in business and social digital networks. It’s quickly becoming an important tool for innovation, and for creating business and social value. In a 2020 Deloitte Global Blockchain Survey, 88% of senior executives indicated they believe blockchain technology will eventually achieve mainstream adoption.
