MouseBelt's Blockchain Education Alliance Adds Mastercard, Binance X, Xpring, KuCoin and NEO

Launched by MouseBelt, which is a blockchain accelerator, the Blockchain Education Alliance has gained a few important new members.

The announcement was made by the MouseBelt Blockchain Accelerator’s university program director Ashlie Meredith, on February 11. It seems the new members are the payment processing giant Mastercard, Binance X, which is Binance’s innovation arm, the Xspring accelerator from Ripple and the crypto exchange KuCoin.

NEO, IoTex, Quantstamp and Constellation Labs also Members

The platform for smart contracts NEO, the internet-of-things (IoT) firm IoTex, the Quantstamp blockchain security company and Constellation Labs, the big data blockchain service, are also part of the Alliance. When it was first launched in October last year, it already had members like TRON, the Stellar Development Foundation, Icon, Harmony One, Icon, Hedera, Ontology, LTO Network, Nervos, Emurgo, Orbs, ETC Labs and Nem. MouseBelt launched in August 2019 the blockchain education campaign at 3 of University of California campuses.

The Alliance Takes Care of Students

The Blockchain Education Alliance official website says the Alliance’s main purpose is supporting education so that students have the connections, skills and knowledge required to make a contribution to the blockchain system.

Why Do Crypto and Blockchain Need Education?

The crypto and blockchain space didn’t move forward for a very long time because there wasn’t a specialized workforce for them. Last year in August, the head of social impact for Ripple, Ken Weber, made some comments in which he says universities from all over the world should include digital assets and blockchain courses in their education programs.

Nikolai Mushegian, who was a contributor for MakerDAO and graduated from Carnegie Mellon, made last month a contribution of 10,000 MKR, which was at that time valued at about $5.65 million, to his alma mater for a research program on decentralized applications to be developed. More than this, the University of Malta launched a Master’s degree in blockchain and distributed ledger technology just last year in October.
