The Tron Foundation intends to support the trend of educational courses in blockchain and crypto that got strong last year with various universities and colleges around the world starting to teach about how the new technology works and what it is about. Now, Tron is going in this direction too.
Tron and San Jose State University
On Thursday, a Twitter post appeared on the Tron Foundation’s account saying that Tron has set a goal for 2019 to spread knowledge about crypto and DLT, helping everyone to get to know these areas.
Tron has partnered with San Jose State University in order to set up learning events for young people.
One of our core initiatives this year is to share our knowledge of blockchain through education. We have partnered with professional fraternities at @SJSU to educate the youth about this emerging industry. More educational events with students coming soon! pic.twitter.com/y8bGCFPd3u— TRON Foundation (@Tronfoundation) March 21, 2019
Most likely, a big share of information to be taught at San Jose university will be about Tron itself and BitTorrent. Thus, the Tron Foundation and Justin Sun have found another way to promote their platforms and coins.
Blockchain is getting its foot into university courses
Many universities around the world, realizing the importance of new technologies in the future, have been offering their students classes to study how blockchain and cryptocurrencies work. These courses include both general knowledge data and practical skills of coding for programmers, so upon graduation they can get a job with any crypto startup.
Among these universities are New York University, the University of California at Berkeley and many others, not only in the US.
There are also numerous online courses that teach these new technology areas to students. Crypto exchanges also offer brief educational programs on all aspects of crypto or only on particular coins.
Good examples here are the Binance Academy and Coinbase. The latter teaches about Zcash, allowing participants to earn Zcash coins for learning.
