The new Crypto School Program is now available to access directly on the NewsCrypto platform and currently has five different topics available, including the basics, trading strategies, and charts. There are also crypto development and economics topics currently in development, these are listed as “coming soon” on the platform.
Blockchain Education Initiatives are in Vogue
NewsCrypto isn’t the first platform to make a major push for blockchain awareness and education. Back in 2019, MouseBelt, a blockchain accelerator firm, launched the Blockchain Education Alliance and teamed up with the University of California to launch three eight-week courses, covering blockchain leadership, blockchain engineering and the business of blockchain.
Likewise, the popular cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase launched its own ‘Coinbase Earn’ platform in mid-2019, allowing users to earn small amounts of various cryptocurrencies, including Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar Lumens (XLM) and Orchid (OXT) in return for watching videos and completing short quizzes on the content.
It isn’t just short educational courses and quizzes that are appearing either. As of April 2020, there are now several bonafide university degrees covering blockchain, cryptocurrencies and related topics like the Internet-of-Things (IoT) and distributed networks. The first of these was launched way back in 2014 by the University of Nicosia in Cyprus, which offers a Master of Science in Digital Currency.
Since then, things have come a long way, and there are now even full-fledged undergraduate degrees available. One of these was recently unveiled in China, after the Ministry of Education of China granted Chengdu University of Information Technology (CUIT) permission to open a major in blockchain engineering.
This trend paints a clear image of the rapidly growing demand for blockchain and cryptocurrency education, demonstrating the meteoric growth and maturation of an industry that is widely predicted to disrupt practically all other industries.
