The research and education department of the Huobi cryptocurrency exchange announced a partnership with the University of Gibraltar on various blockchain-related initiatives.
According to a press release, Gibraltar’s Secretary of Commerce Albert Isola signed a memorandum of understanding on behalf of the university, formally announcing the start of cooperation. Huobi University president Jianing Yu, who also signed the document, noted:
“We are very pleased with the prospect of cooperation between Huobi University and the University of Gibraltar and regard it as a way to accelerate the development of high-quality blockchain-oriented educational initiatives. “Both sides share the desire to promote high-level academic research around the growing DLT industry, and I look forward to seeing this vision take shape.”
Yu also expects cooperation to lead to a mutual exchange of blockchain progress between China and the West. In addition, the press release states that cooperation may include various academic programs, as well as research projects and courses.
Educational initiatives include distributed business models, investments in digital assets and asset management, a blockchain that interacts with 5G and the Internet of things, and the use of blockchain in various fields. The company noted that in the future it plans to launch a series of courses in English for entrepreneurs and investors from different countries.
Universities around the world strive to keep up with the times and include educational courses on cryptocurrencies and blockchain in their programs. Recently, the American exchange Coinbase conducted a study among the 50 best universities in the world and it turned out that more than half of higher education institutions have already launched cryptocurrency courses.
