But we had no idea where to start, and because there is never a perfect time to start, we just started with what we knew best: develop a course, find enthusiastic students and build from there. After a few test runs, we initiated the first validated blockchain course in 2017, and very quickly expanded the content, students and partners. In 2018 we added two major changes: the first was additional flexibility in the curriculum where students could chose from different tracks, assignments, etc., and the second one was opening up the entire course to the public so more people could join and mix with our students. To support this, we build a first prototype; a website without thresholds, where everybody could find the course materials, join the blockchain program and the community. This open approach proved to be an important key and enabled us to acquire all kinds of different values like new knowledge, talents, small funds, skilled specialists and network to expand the platform.
