On Thursday, May 31, 2018, Ruchika A. Bokadia became the 19th and first Woman Certified Blockchain Professional by scoring a 90% on the certification exam. Ruchika remarked, "I felt the course was really helpful to learn what Blockchain actually is. The class really clarified all the relevant Blockchain concepts and I loved the way all the topics were presented. My favorite topics were Blockchain + IOT, Smart Contracts and Gaining Consensus. I learned about the Blockchain deeply and I came to understand its concepts and implementations. The modules built upon each other so more difficult concepts could be grasped as you moved forward in the course. The test questions were well designed and clarified what you learned in each module. As I passed each test I came to realize how much I had learned about Blockchain. Alas, the course is well designed and the concepts were made easy to understand." Please join me in congratulating Ruchika on her achievement and becoming the first Woman Certified Blockchain Professional! You can see more of Ruchika's background on her LinkedIn profile here.
