January 18, 2018
Whether it’s everyone and their grandmother Googling how to buy cryptocurrencies or tea companies simply adding the term blockchain to their name and witnessing a huge spike in their stock price, 2018 is the starting out as the year of blockchain. But those inside FinTech, RegTech and other industries have known about technology for years and understand its true potential to impact businesses and institutions across all sectors. For this to happen however, regulators, consumers and developers must all fully understand the core technology that rests beneath the hype and trends. Blockchain education efforts are critical for having the technology achieve ubiquitous mainstream adoption beyond the hype.
While blockchain was first seen as a disruptive technology, directly antagonizing current structures, it quickly progressed to one that cooperates with, supports and integrates with existing frameworks and systems. It therefore makes sense that blockchain education would rely on traditional avenues. To reach its goals of nurturing an educated and passionate blockchain ecosystem in Vietnam, Infinity Blockchain Labs (IBL) has partnered with many top universities in the nation to establish courses, labs and instructional material. They also have recently announced partnership with leading technology training center, Robusta, to increase people’s understanding of blockchain and how best to harness it for their businesses, institutions and industries.

In December, IBL and Robusta signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) as a formal agreement to collaborate blockchain education efforts. IBL will help Robusta implement specific courses about the technology by offering training, teaching and organizational assistance. The two will co-sponsor a workshop focusing on the technology as well as assist one another in general promotion of events, courses and opportunities to learn more about blockchain.
These joint blockchain education initiatives are certain to increase Vietnam’s understanding of blockchain and fluency in its use. Educated developers and managers will be eager to use blockchain to maximize their products and services, while regulators understanding of its safety and reliability, will establish favorable frameworks that allow it to flourish. Blockchain education collaborations like the one between Robusta and IBL are helping lead the way to Vietnam establishing itself as a global blockchain hub.
