Blockchain Academy, Satoshi Centre tie up to drive blockchain education in Botswana
The Blockchain Academy that provides training on digital currencies and blockchain technology, has announced its partnership with the Satoshi Centre in order to bring blockchain and bitcoin education to Botswana on 1st and 2nd May 2017.
The blockchain training will help developers in the country to learn how to create and build blockchain applications with the help of Bitcoin Core.
“We are seeing a real demand for blockchain skills in South Africa and we expect to see this in Botswana among other African countries soon, as companies are starting to research and build proof-of-concepts with blockchain technology. This is an extremely interesting space to be involved in and provides many opportunities for incumbents and individuals to experiment with this emerging and disruptive technology,” Sonya Kuhnel, Managing Director of the Blockchain Academy, stated in the release.
Established in 2015, the Blockchain Academy is offering training and education in South Africa, India and Zimbabwe. The two-day blockchain training curriculum in Botswana has been designed to offer a comprehensive understanding of bitcoin and blockchain technology for developers.
Blockchain Academy has provided inclusive training to biggest financial institutions in South Africa such as Standard Bank, Absa, Barclays to legal firms, insurance companies and entrepreneurs. Earlier this month, Indian State Kerala announced that it will be setting up its own ‘Blockchain Academy’ in order to lead the research and innovation as well as to impart technical consultancy in a cutting-edge technology.
