The University of Zurich added Cardano to its new blockchain curriculum for 2021 that will include a class for the cryptocurrency into the Deep Dive Into Blockchain lessons so let’s read more in our latest Cardano ADA news.
The University of Zurich announced that they are adding Cardano to their latest Deep Dive Into Blockchain 2021 curriculum and students will be able to learn about the UZH Blockchain Center modules. They will also learn about the blockchain platform for innovators and changemakers which is expected to bring more positive global change. The course aims to teach students about a few facets of blockchain technology and not only limited to their technical scope but the critical design theory as well as economics and incentives behind the blockchain-based systems and how these systems can interact with the current infrastructure in the real world.
The University of Zurich brought in several talented guest lecturers to teach the course like members of the Tezos Foundation and IOST. The CEO of Cardano will also be a guest lecturer. The move signifies how the blockchain space and the emerging technologies are getting fast adopted by educational institutions because they see the long-term potential of giving students the relevant knowledge and expertise as well.
There are a few major universities across the world that offer these kinds of blockchain courses like Cornell University, MIT, and Harvard University. This is another great sign for Cardano’s ecosystem because it shows that the institutions are taking interest and see it as a serious contender on a scale larger than a personal use alone. The fact that Cardano as a technology is being taught in universities and schools means that it will legitimize even further and blockchain technology is finding a center space in the world.
Cardano also released more details on Plutus which is the native programming language that will be used to write smart contracts after the new major upgrade Alonzo. In a blog post, IOHK commented that Cardano prepares for the latest Plutus smart contract upgrade and said that the smart contracts consist of parts that run on-chain and parts that run on the user’s machine off-chain. It also added that both parts are actually written in the Haskell programming language but then are compiled by Plutus which provides the framework for smart contracts on Cardano. Just like Bitcoin, Cardano uses the UTXO model where the inputs are unspent outputs from past transactions.
