The Blockchain Education Alliance launched by blockchain accelerator MouseBelt has gained several noteworthy new members such as brewing company Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB-InBev), Dutch bank ING, cryptocurrency exchange Multi.io, and luxury car company Rolls Royce.
It has been reported by the head of Education for MouseBelt Blockchain Accelerator Ashlie Meredith that the addition of these firms makes 26 current members in the organization.
However, MouseBelt stated that these companies have been utilizing blockchain technology for up to five years.
Blockchain Education Alliance was involved in a three-day conference that streamed nonstop in May when many students were still sheltering in place and unable to attend classes. The Reimagine 2020 virtual conference hosted students from more than 20 universities.
The company said that it would connect related projects to students, researchers, and blockchain protocols through the Blockchain Education Alliance.
The alliance aims to support education “to ensure students receive the skills, connections, and knowledge necessary to contribute to the blockchain ecosystem.”
Thus, Meredith said:
“In a time when many students will not be returning to campus, increasing opportunities for educational experiences, jobs and internships is of utmost importance.”
