VEB and Ethereum to train blockchain experts in Russia
VEB and Ethereum signed a cooperation agreement, under which they will jointly develop educational programs on blockchain, as well as train specialists for government entities of the Russian Federation, RBC reports.
The development will be carried out on the basis of the VEB Blockchain Competence Center. The companies have already determined three main areas: educational programs, blockchain popularization and professional support.
“Educational programs will be a basis for training professional staff that later on will be able to develop blockchain-based solutions. To promote the technology of the distributed registry, we will hold conferences and publish analytical articles”, says the member of the Ethereum supervisory board Vladislav Martynov.
Vitalik Buterin believes that such a partnership is a great chance for Ethereum to start the development of blockchain solutions for the government.
“It is a unique opportunity, due to which we will be able to adapt blockchain to the needs of the government entities of Russia”, said Vitalik Buterin.
