This is an overall great course on blockchain. The Python part is a bit boring and the “speak parts are sometimes a bit too long and slightly unprepared by Kirill Eremenko since he sometimes tries to come up with too many examples that was not prepared, and therefore making the sections a bit too long. That said is probably the best course on blockchain out there right now, but it is missing a proper discussion about proof of stake and to show an implementation of PoS.
