Ripple has been working hard over the past couple of months mostly working on increasing the knowledge on blockchain technology in universities through their University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI) which was first launched in June last year. We are going to find out more in today’s crypto news about this great program which now includes 29 schools.
There are plenty of popular universities on the list such as Cornell, Georgetown University, University of Kansas, University of Michigan, Institute for Fintech Research, the National University of Singapore and much more.
The program is mostly focused on academic research, innovation, blockchain, cryptocurrency, and digital payments. The UBRI program is designed to teach people in engineering and software development to find their career paths perhaps in the blockchain industry.
For example, UBRI has partnered with the University of California-Berkeley which has allowed for the creation of multiple departments and collaboration between students on research projects and blockchain-related activities.
There aren’t many examples of the same type of collaboration but because the blockchain technology has an incredible amount of use cases, the heads of the different school departments were able to see how learning more about this technology would improve the advancement in the career of their students.
Ripple has managed to partner with 29 schools in about 7 months which is a great sign for the future of blockchain into the world of the academy. There might be still some new technological breakthroughs in the future as a result of the blockchain protocol and Ripple seems to have the front row seats to be the first company to benefit from those innovations.

“We’ve had some bullish moves on ETH, BTC, and altcoins over the last 2 weeks. Is the bear market over? Maybe, the fact of the matter is we are going up. Traders must see PA for what it is and can change bias quickly. If you have been stuck with a bearish lense you are missing out.’’Over the past few months, Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies show similar movements. BTC showed weeks of stability but it later plunged by 10 percent. However, the current stability is not a guarantee for improved future performance. The crypto market shows a period of stability for the past couple of weeks. Ethereum made gains during today’s trading session. After the 12 percent surge in the price of ETH, crypto trader DonAlt said:
“Well, this is a proper moon. Not a big liquid spike but rather a nice controlled walk up. Didn’t expect quite this much action into the weekend but I’m not complaining. ETH as the top gainer on BitMEX. Right at resistance here – will be interesting if it can break through or not.”
