4 hours Advanced universal_currency_alt 16 Credits
Blockchain and related technologies, such as distributed ledger and distributed apps, are becoming new value drivers and solution priorities in many industries. In this Quest you will gain hands-on experience with distributed ledger and the exploration of blockchain datasets in Google Cloud. This Quest brings the research and solution work of Google's Allen Day into self-paced labs for you to run and learn directly. Since this Quest utilizes advanced SQL in BigQuery, a SQL-in-BigQuery refresher lab is at the start. The final lab is an advanced challenge-style lab in which there are elements where you are not provided the answer but must solve it for yourself.
