Teach students about blockchain
In a press release shared with Cointelegraph on Oct. 10, it was announced that top crypto projects Tron and Stellar will work together to form a new educational alliance that will provide university students with the connections and knowledge needed to successfully enter the blockchain industry workforce.
Tron and Stellar, together with eleven other members of the nascent Blockchain Education Alliance, will jointly develop and fund a number of educational initiatives to bring blockchain technology to the masses.
The new educational alliance is spearheaded by blockchain accelerator Mousebelt, which intends to build a network of industry leaders to bring blockchain technology to the forefront through education and research. MouseBelt Director Ashlie Meredith said that students are eager to be educated by established blockchain experts, adding:
“Universities need established experts in the space to help develop curriculum and projects — and Stellar, TRON, Hedera, ICON, Ontology, Wanchain, Harmony One, Nervos, Orbs, LTO Network, Emurgo, NEM, and ETC Labs are well positioned to share valuable knowledge. We have an opportunity to have a positive impact on how blockchain technology is introduced to students, which will result in more blockchain developers, more innovative research, and higher quality companies.”
With the launch of the Blockchain Education Alliance, MouseBelt hopes to entice its founding members to bring more funding to students’ activities and expand its educational opportunities in the field.
More blockchain education at California universities
MouseBelt launched a blockchain education initiative in August at UC Davis, UC Los Angeles and UC Santa Barbara to support blockchain-focused education, research and entrepreneurship. Ashlie Meredith said:
“We aim to help these universities become a driving force for innovation in the blockchain space, as well as provide students and researchers with the opportunity for both theoretical and industry experience.”
