Europechain is amongst the world’s first to teach blockchain technology at a global university. Europechain has delivered an advanced EOSIO course at the University of Geneva as part of its official Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) on blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). The EOSIS Blockchain is considered Blockchain 3.0 because of its zero transaction fees, TPS rates of 10,000 per second and fast scaling ability. The teaching of EOSIO at Geneva marks a further step in the adoption of blockchain as a new and vibrant digital technology.
Blockchain, in general, offers a paradigm shift for traditional businesses, governments, and non-profit organizations. The first stage of adoption is always education, demonstrating the next wave to professionals and enthusiasts of the potential benefits.
The EOSIO lectures were given at the Geneva campus by the CTO of EOS Amsterdam, a member of Europechain. He is well known under the nickname "cc32d9" in the EOSIO community.
The blockchain CAS at the University of Geneva delivers 12 official European (ECTS) credits and is led by Dr. Jean-Marc Seigneur, who has published more than 100 scientific peer-reviewed papers in the field of decentralized trust. The CAS covers several DLT such as Ethereum, NEO, Hashgraph Hedera, Libra, Komodo, Hyperledger, Binance Chain and of course EOS. The main focus of the certificate is to design and prototype a DLT system covering the main technical solutions, as well as business and legal aspects.
Europechain’s CTO, aka‘Cc32d9’, is a senior software architect working in the industry of software and telecommunications for more than 20 years. He started working in EOSIO space in June 2018, shortly after the EOS mainnet launch.
