Blockchain Architecture - Dropped Like It's Hot!

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin

Following our hugely successful first round of masterclasses, Nodeunlock ( presents a fresh set of blockchain education made simple.

3 hours of mind-blowing education, a breakdown of the technology layers that make up blockchain and distributed ledgers, walk away with 70+ resources to help you continue learning.

Acronyms, technical jargon, and generally hoarding knowledge through large walls of insider talk is something we H-A-T-E at Nodeunlock. The goal of this next session will be to arm you with the ability to cut through a lot of the shit when talking to an "informed" person in the Blockchain space by educating you on the tech stake, as well as architecture.

Yes, we know the words "tech stack" and "architecture" are somewhat intimidating, but hear us out!

In these workshops, we'll simplify everything down to a human level and we don't stand on a pedestal speaking at you, but actually embed you into the learning experience.

So what does that look like?

Well, we incorporate games, brain teasers, use case debates, rapid-fire quizzes, and plenty more, but keep this in mind before taking the leap of faith... Nodeunlock is a company that delivers experiences and blockchain education just happens to be the channel that creativity has been unleashed.  If we don't make you get up out of your seat at least 45 times during the masterclass, we ain't doing it right!

Learn by doing.
