Blockchain tech is just getting started – learn to harness it for just $29

Do you know the difference between bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and blockchain? While there is definitely overlap between the three of them they are each their own thing. Right in the center is blockchain, the revolutionary and paradigm-shifting technology that is just now coming into mainstream popularity.

While 2017 might have been the year when many jumped into purchasing Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies, blockchain has been around for more than a decade. And, whereas it was once relegated to those nerdy, super-early adopters, it’s now something that many major corporations are starting to take very seriously.

Institutions have taken notice and are getting into blockchain; it’s time you do, too. But, where to start? First, you’ll want to master the concept itself. From there, you might want to invest in a project, or even build your very own one.

If this sounds interesting to you, we recommend getting started with the Blockchain Certification Advanced Training Bundle. Currently 96 percent off, just $29 from the AndroidGuys Deals Store, it’s the jumping off point that will help you to understand what makes the technology so interesting and powerful.

Some of the instruction in this two-part package is overarching, covering blockchain’s central role in the cryptocurrency craze, but most of it goes deeper, expanding your knowledge into the various ways decentralized data mining and organization impacts the world.

Your blockchain training bundle includes:

  • Get an overview of blockchain concepts & objectives
  • Learn about blockchain data structures & identifiers
  • Create blocks & add them to blockchain w/ the help of Mining
  • Buy & sell Bitcoins
  • Comprehend blockchain transaction limitations & public policies
  • Learn to use the latest blockchain tools such as Ganache, Truffle, Meta Mask, & Geth to build blockchain applications
  • Set up your own private blockchain network using Hyperledger
  • Deploy smart contracts on Ethereum

Of course you’ll learn what the blockchain is as well as the ever-expanding application behind smart contracts. But, you’ll also come to understand how cryptocurrencies, like bitcoin, are developed and employed. Moreover, you will dive into specific topics like Hyperledger, Meta Mask, and even into the ways you can create versions of your own blockchain projects.

The two courses in this bundle typically retail for $800 on their own, but our Deals Store has them for pennies on the dollar. There are more than 35 hours of training which means you’re paying less than a dollar per hour.

Hurry, and take advantage of the 96 percent savings. Who knows, maybe this time next year you’ll have your own project for others to invest in and support!

Opera bakes VPN into latest browser release

Our online security is becoming more and more important. From online trackers to local hackers, we need to start paying more attention to our information and how it’s exploited. Popular browser development house Opera agrees. With its latest release, the company is included a VPN in the browser itself.

With Opera 51, you will receive a free, built-in virtual private network to help secure your online habits. The update will hit users today, March 20th 2019, and is available on the Android app via the Play Store. The company’s SVP of Android development, Peter Wallman, cites several trends to lead the browser to this addition:

“By enabling Opera’s VPN, users make it very difficult for third parties to steal pieces of their information and can avoid being tracked…

…We want to make VPN adoption easy and user-friendly, especially for those who want to feel more secure on the Web but are not aware of how to do it..”

Opera is offering a key solution to increasing your online security with a VPN readily available inside the browser. The company is also clear that this is for the betterment of the user and not for other gains. The VPN is free, unlimited, and requires no login to use. While most VPNs aren’t overly pricey, they are commonly a paid service.

The devs also made is super easy to set up the new VPN services inside of Opera.

  • Download or launch Opera
  • Tap the Settings with the “O” logo in the bottom right
  • Find VPN under the options
  • Enable the feature and the region you prefer

That’s it! Clean, easy installation and you have your very own private network. This will help protect your information while on public WiFi and even help against web trackers while surfing under normal conditions. This is another addition to a great browser with security-minded features like ad block that Opera already offers.

As a reminder, all Opera updates are done regionally in waves. If you don’t immediately see the update, it’s on the way.
