First Blockchain School in Russia

Today I will write about the opening of the first blockchain school in Russia.

In the capital of the IT tehnology at Moscow’s Phystechpark, Russia launches the first blockchain school. The program will a focus on the technical aspects of the Ethereum network. The classes will begin on March 1st, where students will be trained in programming with blockchain technology. It is stated that the duration of the training will be one semester. During this time, students learn the theoretical organization and architecture of the blockchain network and find out how the application develops in Ethereum network.

Also, one of the novelties for Russia is that it will place the new cryptocurrency known as the “CryptoRuble”.

Russian communications minister Nikolai Nikiforov said that the Russian cryptocurrency will be controlled by Russian authorities and mining will not be possible. CryptoRuble owners will be able to exchange their holdings for the regular Russian currency Ruble at any time, provided that the owner confirms the origin of the acquisition of  CryptoRuble.

It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Russian CryptoRuble becomes reality because Russia is one of the important countries in the world of cryptocurrency. It produced important figures for cryptocurrency, such as the founder of Etherium, Vitalik Buterin and the founder of the Telegram, Pavel Durov.

Schools around the world provide blockchain courses

The demand for blockchain technology is growing and there is a huge need for blockchain talents around the world.

Many schools around the world offer blockchain courses; among them are the best business schools in the United States. The goal is to get to know the players in the blockchain technology arena, explain why the technology is revolutionary and help the students explore other potential applications of this technology in different areas.

One elementary school in Melbourne is one of the leaders in the next Digital Revolution. Six months ago, the school received 21 bitcoins of investment from American programmer Andrew Kwon. This investment has helped the school build a blockchain base and an innovation lab that has 3D printers, Microsoft’s HoloLens glasses, robots and programmable drones.
