Binance-backed smart contract platform BNB Chain has announced a new partnership with the Blockchain Center of the University of Zurich to participate in the forthcoming three weeks of the University’s International Summer Schools for blockchain education.
With a central theme to explore a “Deep Dive into Blockchain,” students will be educated on the essentials of crucial blockchain concepts,, including the Consensus Model, assets in the ledger, data storage in blocks, identity, governance, and smart contracts. Per the announcement, BNB Chain will be represented in the program by Alvin Kan, its Ecosystem Coordinator for Games and NFT and Director of Data & Research.
“BNB Chain wants to accelerate the development of blockchain technology and empower students to build innovative projects. This collaboration is an opportunity for the students to dive deeper into blockchain technology and contribute to the future of Web3, as well as for us to amplify the mass adoption of blockchain,” said Alvin in a statement.
Specifically, Alvin will help in designing a section of the course on fundamental blockchain concepts and host an NFT workshop for students. He will also help develop a use case that will see a group of 5 students collaborate on projects utilising BNB Chain’s strength.
Participation in the program will be accompanied by an issued certificate and a Proof-of-Achievement certificate in the form of NFT. The broader Binance ecosystem is well in tune with the inherent innovations of blockchain as a disruptive technology in several areas of the economy.
The exchange raised $500 million earlier this month to drive blockchain innovation and Web3 adoption, with education a crucial element of this vision. The trading platform also recently signed a pact with the government of Kazakhstan in which it will look to foster blockchain education as the country seeks to align more with digital transformation.
