Blockchain Academy in India

Cardano Launches a Blockchain Academy in India

Emurgo, the subsidiary of the cryptocurrency project Cardano, has recently claimed to develop, incubate and support the commercial startups following the launch of a blockchain school in India aiming to train more than 2,500 blockchain developers.

As per the close sources to the development of the new project, Emurgo has established its academy for blockchain in India and is preparing to train over 2,000 developers by the end of 2019.

According to Emurgo, the company is planning to collaborate with around 200 institutions in India this year, and setting up offices in numerous cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune and Chennai before 2020.

The team cleared this up that the full-time program, which is set to start from April 2019, would be divided into several online as well as offline courses.

The entire program will run for 175 hours and is designed for both those who are new to coding and the ones who are professional. Reportedly,

“The training will be conducted by both blockchain-focused small and medium enterprises (SMEs) as well as seasoned experts in the blockchain space.”

Even though it’s new, it’s still worth saying that Blockchain Technology is gradually but surely being adopted by several companies across the world in different sectors of the economy.

The Development of Blockchain

Since blockchain’s fast development in various sectors, the demand for technology is getting higher. Such a revolutionary technology has a huge demand, but there is still a major shortage in the number of professionals who understand the technology completely.

BTC Manager reported –

“Against that backdrop, CEO of Emurgo Academy, E. Venkatesan has stated explicitly that the project is aimed at training blockchain developers that can fill the DLT gap in SMEs, as these startups may not be able to train their employees internally.”

Even though this initiative by Emurgo is a welcome development, it’s worthy of note that platform is not the first to launch such a big program. However, the initiative surely indicates that blockchain is making its footprints everywhere.
