Blockchain Education Comes to Botswana

Announcements | March 28, 2017 By:

South Africa’s Blockchain Academy has partnered with the Satoshi Centre to help drive education on bitcoin and blockchain in the African nation of Botswana. The training is set to take place on 1st and 2nd May 2017.

The training is aimed at developers who will learn how to build blockchain applications using the bitcoin core. The two-day curriculum is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of what bitcoin and blockchain is and how developers can use this technology to build their own applications.

“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,” said Blockchain Academy managing diretor Sonya Kuhnel. “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.”

Blockchain Academy was founded in 2015 to provide bitcoin training and education in South Africa, Zimbabwe and India. Its clients have ranged from the biggest financial institutions in South Africa, including Standard Bank, Absa, and Barclays to legal firms, insurance companies and entrepreneurs.
