About The Instructor

Gurinder Bhangoo has been heavily involved in Cryptocurrencies since he mined his first Bitcoin transaction in 2013. Currently, he is the Director of Blockchain Technology for Fair Trade - who have developed a Ride-sharing app that utilizes a forked Ethereum Blockchain. His first Blockchain presentation was held at the Sunnyvale Plug & Play Tech Center back in 2014. Currently, Gurinder is teaching Ethereum Smart Contracts on the road (with Blockchain Innovation Lab) for Developers, Managers, & Enterprises. His knowledge of multiple Blockchains is invaluable for people who are trying to cut through the noise in this rapidly growing industry.

He is actively developing two Mobile DApps “BlockSteps” & “MarketMe”, which are both built on Ethereum Blockchains. Gurinder’s teaching philosophy mirrors that of the Innovation Lab's - encouraging student engagement and providing real-world examples to help his peers learn faster and more efficiently than they would in a traditional education style.
