Indian's Government Ran Kerala Blockchain Academy Becomes A Partner Of R3 Corda

Kerala Blockchain Academy (KBA) from the southern state of India has recently announced that they have chosen to be general partners of New York-based enterprise blockchain platform R3.

R3 is an enterprise blockchain software firm working with a broad ecosystem across industries to develop on Corda, its open-source blockchain platform, and Corda Enterprise, a commercial version of Corda. It raised $120 million in 2017 to build out Corda, and the company now employs 200 people at offices in New York, Brazil, and London.

KBA has already designed a developer certification program on Corda Blockchain and will be rolled out next month. The academy's courses are intended for individuals who possess little or zero prior experience in blockchain, and for those who wish to train themselves to consequently transition from other careers.

It further aims to prepare students comprehensively to explore potential application domains, introduce them to basic principles and operations, and experimenting with smart contracts and D-Apps.

The academy could potentially be a platform for blockchain developers to explore opportunities in the industry, opening up the possibility of becoming a blockchain solution provider to a wide array of businesses.

This is the first time for a government institution to offer a developer program on Corda blockchain in Kerala. Noticeably numerous local banks have already started to use Corda blockchain-based platform for their core banking systems.

Even though India is not known for their ease of using crypto, it is making progress when it comes to implementation of blockchain technologies. Southern states of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka have already shown interest in various blockchain projects.
