On Tuesday, May 22, 2018, Ray Godsey became the 18th Certified Blockchain Professional by scoring a 80% on the certification exam. Ray remarked, "I have worked in security sales for a number of years. Verizon is releasing a blockchain security solution. As a salesperson I wanted to learn more about blockchain beyond what could could find with Google searches so that I could have intelligent conversations with my customers/prospects. I worked with Paul in the past and when I was doing research for which book/course to take, I found his information and book/website, so this made it an easy decision as to what course and book to purchase based on my trust and knowledge of Paul. I first purchased the book. Great read with a lot of information. I was especially interested to find the number of Blockchains that are available and how many private Blockchains there are. Being able to differentiate and understand the private Blockchain options are key. Understanding the real world use (beyond Bitcoin) was especially useful. Smart contracts and having multiple but trusted copies of the data were also very important. Selling to enterprise customers, the private Blockchains are of more practical use. After reading the book, I decided to sign up for the course to get more information and learn/understand it better. I think anyone who wants more information about Blockchains and how they could be used in a business environment could learn from the class and book. The tests were challenging. You definitely need to print out the course handbooks and take good notes. " Please join me in congratulating Ray on his achievement! You can see more of Ray's background on his LinkedIn profile here.
