“As an established protocol, Tezos is at the cutting-edge of advancements in the blockchain space, and we are excited to be able to create this course with input from the Tezos Foundation, and that they share in our vision of making learning more accessible.” Damien Ducourty, co-founder of B9lab
Tezos gives stakeholders the ability to amend the protocol through an innovative on-chain governance mechanism. Tezos is designed to evolve, allowing it to implement future innovations without the need for contentious hard forks. The native smart contract language for Tezos was purpose-built for security and supports formal verification, which enables the rigorous testing of key security properties.
