GM Surgers,

Learning about the mechanics of what goes underneath the hood of Web3 can be highly technical and complex. It's why we've open sourced a Web3 Course to help you navigate how everything ties together.

We're releasing a chapter a week to subscribers for free on YouTube, starting with deep dives from our first chapter.

Here’s a TLDR on what you’ll learn in Chapter 1 👇🏼

What is a blockchain and how does it work?

A blockchain is a distributed, decentralized ledger that holds chronologically organized transaction records.

Blockchains; like Bitcoin or Ethereum are open and permissionless. This means anyone can take part in the consensus mechanism or access the information about the chain.

For example, you can use block explorers such as Etherscan to access all information that gets written into the Ethereum blockchain.
