Cornell University Remains Leader In Crypto Education

crypto education

Cornell University still remains a leader in crypto education since twice as many students report having to take a crypto course more than they did in the previous years, as we are reading in the latest cryptocurrency news today.

According to research that included more than 735 US students aged 16 and older, there was a comprehensive course at 50 international universities, analysis and research citations and non-coursework offerings but professors and student interviews as well. Cornell University is still the leader in crypto education as per this latest researches.

A few years ago, the undergrad Joseph Ferrera wanted to learn more about blockchain technology and cryptocurrency which was dominating the news since Bitcoin was in the headlines every day. A few classes existed at that time as a part of the crypto education courses so he formed a club for interested students called Cornell Blockchain. The club filled a room with 120 students and most of them were not even involved in computer science and the rest joined from other campuses as well. The computer science professor Dawn Song from the University of California Berkeley commented:

 “The blockchain domain’s interdisciplinary nature makes it very different from any traditional field.’’

There was a lot of interest from the business schools to learn blockchain but also from the medical schools, management schools, and even the agricultural school according to Ferrera. He graduated from Cornell School of Hotel Administration and is now working as the business manager of Ava Labs which is a startup that works on decentralized, blockchain-payment network technology:

”We’ve had so many professors reach out to to learn more about blockchain and see how it applies to their field.’’

The classes only a small chunk of the story of the university’s commitement to blockchain technology so this year there were other analyses made regarding the student-run crypto clubs and other schools that leverage data from google scholar attributions. Among the students, there is distrust in the current financial system as well which is feeding the curiosity around crypto and it cuts across the disciplines. More than two-thirds of the students describe the current financial systems as unstable and inefficient.

More than 34 percent of students surveyed expressed interest in taking the course on crypto or blockchain compared to about 28 percent back in 2019. There are twice as many people that took a class on the topic compared to the number reported from 2018.

commerceblock ico review
In our CommerceBlock ICO review, we are listing all of the details about this new prosperous ICO. If you are new to it, you should know that it is also new in the cryptonews. However, there is a reason why many are investing in it and its concept is pretty interesting. To begin with, we should say that this is an ICO where the team is actually focused on getting tools and API ready for financial developers to build systems on the back of the blockchain and the BTC/ETH technology. The team believes that there is a huge amount of funds which resides within the traditional banking system and is plagued by nepotism, delays, centralized control and wastage. Another part we would like to highlight in our CommerceBlock ICO review is that the team wants to liberate the funds from centralized control and bring in more security and transparency as well. The fact that the current storage of large amount of funds within the legacy banking systems is a cause for worry for a lot of people in the world. Still, it remains to be seen whether the blockchain would become the liberating force that these funds need so that they are made more accessible to the retail clients who would love the transparency which the blockchain can bring in. As we said above, the current financial system involves the presence of funds within an age-old banking system with centralized control. The CommerceBlock ICO review shows that there are a lot of inefficiencies that this projects can solve. They are also in the blockchain news for stating that this technology would help in the decentralization of control and that it can be used by any individual or business to manage trade flows, hedge currency risk and any such kind of business transaction. The team at CommerceBlock is a small one (from what we can see from their website and white paper) but they certainly have a lot of experience on the blockchain. Full of advisors and expert scientists, the development and maintenance of APIs and SDKs on the blockchain would require a lot of development effort and they plan to hire more developers for this purpose once the funds settle in after this ICO.

Algorand Cemented Its Position As A Major Ethereum Challenger In 2020

algorand cemented
The world's most used stablecoin, Tether, has recently become the first stablecoin to be issued on the Algorand network. Additionally, Algorand cemented its position as a network which could challenge the Ethereum network in 2020. The crypto news showed that Tether has an estimated daily trading volume of 40 to 64 billion and recently announced that they will be partnering with Algorand. Traders will now have the option to use the USD-backed stablecoin on the Omni, Ethereum, Tron, EOS and Algorand blockchains. Regarding this collaboration and the fact that Algorand cements its position this year as an ETH challenger, the CTO of Tether Paolo Ardoino said:
“A key strength of Tether is that it is underpinned by a rich diversity of different blockchains. Our latest collaboration with Algorand leverages the speed and security of Algorand’s protocol to give traders fast settlement and reduced counterparty risk in their fiat to digital asset transactions. Tether and Algorand both share a desire to keep building next-generation financial products and we feel our growing customer base will appreciate and benefit greatly from this collaboration.”
Led by a Turing award winner named Silvio Micali, Algorand is a public, permissionless and proof-of-stake blockchain that is currently working on creating a borderless global economy. The inherent design and architecture is how Algorand cemented itself from the competition, easily conducting 1000 transactions per second and a block production time of 5 seconds per block. In comparison, the Ethereum latest news show that Ethereum manages less than 25 transactions per second and has a block production time of 15 seconds. All in all, Algorand is on a good way to provide a highly scalable platform for Tether to function at its maximum capacity. On the other hand, the network can leverage Tether's immense popularity to attract more users and institutions to its platform. This won't only increase the platform's usage - it will also bring in more developers and applications as well. While Algorand cements itself as a direct competitor to Ethereum, Tether (USDT) is also moving up and recently become the latest high profile project to collaborate with Algorand. The native token of Algorand, ALGO, has meanwhile been accepted on many major exchanges in the likes of Binance, CoinBasePRO, Huobi, Kraken and several others.

Rarible Blockchain Art Platform Sparks Fraud Discussions

Published

rarible
Rarible, the blockchain-based art platform had one of its artists, Karan Singh, notifying the platform that some of his work was fraudulently listed. The issue was resolved quickly but the NFT space has started discussing the crypto regulation issues and how to prevent these incidents from happening in the future as we are reading in the crypto news today. The primary goal behind the Rarible blockchain platform is to tokenize the works of digital art is that the tokens are visible on the blockchain. The creator and the points of sale can be tracked over the life of the work. The hosting platforms such as Rarible, will mint the tokens using Ethereum and other competitors in the space including SuperRare and KnownOrigin. Once an artist uploads the work and the work gets created to a tradeable ERC721, the artists can then auction the piece so the buyers take solace in the token and trust that they are the true owners of the digital creation. However, with the latest fraud case, this trust was breached. Karan Singh who worked with Apple reported a fraudulent copy of its work on the blockchain-platform: “This is actually my work,” he tweeted, linking to his Instagram account. “And so are all of these. [Take] them down.” Another user that pretended to be Singh, had sourced the work of the artist and placed them on sale at Rarible according to the co-founder of Rarible, Ilya Komolkin. Komolkin banned the impersonator and asked the holders to burn all of the tokens that they had minted including Singh’s work. The German artist Mario Klingemann also helped to identify the fraud after having bought the work. After the announcement, he urged the buyers to burn their tokens too. The platform mitigated much of the issue and Singh’s fast response helped to keep the fraud under relative wraps and prevented the imposter from making tons of money. Since then, members of the NFT community have posed various solutions to prevent such events from happening in the future. In Singh’s, the stakes were low because he caught the fraudster quickly. If he hadn’t arrived when he did, the fraudster could have easily made money.
