Citizens Reserve, Inc. is a blockchain platform who has collaborated with a private research university called Duke University located in Durham, North Carolina., in order to support blockchain education.
This collaboration will create a new incubation lab on the Duke campus for students. Working on real blockchain projects will be done through the lab. Hosting blockchain events will be done through the lab as well.
This collaboration will conduct a blockchain-based curriculum, connect students with blockchain experts and help them in finding blockchain jobs after graduation. A group of former Deloitte blockchain employees leads Citizens Reserve.
The blockchain platform Zilliqa has collaborated with King’s College London in order to support blockchain education. This collaboration will conduct a blockchain program called Blockchain A-Z program. The main purpose of the program is to explore both the business and technological aspects of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). The students can understand the limitations and barriers related to the adoption of the blockchain. It will start on March 26th, 2019.
Xinshu Dong, the CEO of Zilliqa, said, “Blockchain education is essential in securing a sustainable future for the wider industry. With Zilliqa’s roots in academic research, Blockchain A-Z enables us to not only give back to academia but to also engage with the next-generation of talent and equip them with the necessary knowledge and resources to bring their ideas to life,” Crypto Briefing reported.
The chief innovation officer of the blockchain platform Citizens Reserve Yonathan Lapchik said, “As a Duke MBA alumnus, I am excited to spearhead this program, and help the next generation of blockchain advocates and leaders succeed. Many industries, including finance, supply chain, and healthcare, are already exploring the potential of blockchain technology, so it is more important than ever to provide students with the tools needed to develop the skills, connections, and knowledge employers will seek from tomorrow’s workforce,” CoinDesk reported.[The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views and/or the official policy of the website. ]
