19 participants from various industries took part at The Blockchain Academy organized by B3 – Blockchain Business Board and held in Politecnico di Milano on December 12th-13th. Academy participants had the opportunity to grasp most of the various elements which made Bitcoin prosper that are at the crossroad of game theory, Cryptography, computer networking and data transmission as well as economic and monetary theory.
The proposed approach of The Blockchain Academy is that more than a technology this is a groundbreaking cultural paradigm shift. Participants were able to study as well as practice what they have been listening from Ferdinando M. Ametrano who has been speaking about Bitcoin at Banca d’Italia, Italian Parliament Lower House, IlSole24Ore, and Chairman of the Host Committee for Scaling Bitcoin 2016 in Milan.
The Blockchain Academy two days’ course showed that there’s an increasing demand from consultants, bankers, IT experts to fully understand the intricacies behind this technological breakthrough.
Both Vincenzo Morabito and Marco Favia, Founding Partner and Head of B3 respectively, are truly enthusiast after the first successful Blockchain Academy. Marco Favia pointed out that:”Education is the key for those who want to take a real competitive advantage about the upcoming Blockchain adoption. Our sold out Blockchain Academy shows us that we are moving in the right direction.”
The Blockchain Academy is still on the go and the next event is going to take place in London in March. Stay tuned to be updated!
