The Africa Blockchain Institute (ABI) is proud to announce the start of the Rwanda blockchain school for local developers and programmers. The school is now a viral topic in the blockchain news and was first unveiled on December 26 by the ABI Executive Director, Kayode Babarinde.
Babarinde revealed that the new school will have five courses in the pipeline, including:
- a blockchain essentials certification course,
- a blockchain developers’ course,
- an enterprise blockchain course,
- blockchain for lawyers and
- blockchain for impact.
The Rwanda blockchain school was planned for some time and the main idea behind it was inspired by a pilot phase in Ghana, where the school launched an inaugural class for a blockchain essentials certification course.
While the course areas had already been broadly sketched out ahead of the pilot in Ghana, the Rwanda blockchain school will be inspired from this plans. However, there are still many aspects which have been revamped and updated on the basis of the responses and experiences of all course participants.
As the official from ABI also noted, the Rwanda blockchain school is also in cooperation with the Blockchain DLT Rwanda Association and its chairman, Norbert Haguma. He has been a key factor in the decision to launch the school.
“Every technology company is looking for an enabling environment to serve the continent. This means supportive policies, resource management, and visibility for the market. All these make Rwanda stand out in Africa,” Babarinde stated, noting that the local context has been highly conductive for investments in new technologies.
If you follow our cryptonews daily, you probably know that blockchain is one of the technologies with many implementations this year locally – and a lot more planned for 2020. The Rwanda blockchain school is a perfect example for that, stimulating international collaboration and partnerships which are seen as key to sustaining the adoption of blockchain all around the continent.
Babarinde also noted that a robust regulatory framework is now needed as the key step to reducing the traction of crypto-related scams. He also alluded to the recent “unsolicited activities” in East Africa. Earlier this month, the blockchain associations of Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya also issued a joint statement warning the public against these risks.
