BitPrime is an affiliate of edX. Dedicated to the education of New Zealander’s about cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, we have chosen to promote the edX courses as we believe they are of an extremely high standard. Members of our staff have completed BerkeleyX’s Blockchain Fundamentals programme and believe it to be very beneficial for those with limited knowledge in this area.
