RMIT, an Australian public research university, has just announced the opening of its first university blockchain course.
The eight-week course entitled Developing Blockchain Strategy will not just give you a basic understanding of theoretical claims. It will also teach you why and how to use crypto.
Jason Potts, the director of the Blockchain Innovation Hub, said that this is the time when different technologies have worked together to create something beautiful. In this case, that beauty lies in teaching people in business and executives everything about the blockchain technology. Potts said that he intends to show business people how they can utilize the blockchain technology to enhance their current business models.
The general manager of Stone & Chalk, Alan Tsen, also shared his point of view regarding the subject. He said that in times like this, there is already working connection between banks and the blockchain technology.
Tsen also mentioned that practically everyone already has a basic idea about cryptocurrency. However, since the knowledge is insufficient, there arises a need for cryptocurrency education. He believes that this new program will help address that problem.
This is not the first time, however, that something like RMIT’s course linked academes and blockchain together. There is also the UC Berkeley which offers a course regarding cryptocurrencies. Later this year, there will also be a South Californian study that will guide young people into the potential blockchain careers that they can venture.

There were more than 60 financial investigators from the Interpol and Europol organizations from over 30 countries that had attended a workshop which discussed the methods that can be used to stop or at least minimize the exploitation of cryptocurrencies.
Head of Europol Rob Wainwright said that over USD 5.5 billion worth of cryptocurrencies is laundered annually.
Because Monero is focused on a private-centric design, it has come to be known as the drug dealer’s favorite crypto. It was discussed in the workshop that more measures are needed to ensure the proper monitoring of the said cryptocurrency.
With that, the participants of the workshop, including the USA, EU, Japan, and Australia, decided to step up for the war against illegal cryptocurrency trades.
