by Martijn completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
I'm afraid that I'm not a fan of this course. The blockchain introduction in week 1 is very shallow, and the following weeks are mostly interviews with some companies in the sector. Yes, they use blockchain, but it is a mystery why blockchain should be used instead of conventional technology. Each week took me less than an hour to complete, and I feel I would have learned a lot more watching videos on Youtube.

Having said that, the total time investment is not that large. So if you're considering this course, try it out, but don't expect the moon ;-)
