Cryptocurrencies and NFTs took the world by storm in 2021, but what exactly are they? Or how do you build them? With the rise of cryptocurrency, blockchain technology has taken a front seat in making it a safe platform for investments. Blockchain allows individuals to deal directly and securely through a decentralised system without an intermediary. While the technology has been around for a long time, its recent popularity has attracted tons of professionals and students who want to learn the art of blockchain. Analytics India Magazine has listed out the ten best online courses, both long and short, to learn blockchain technology in 2022.
