Malta has been deemed the “Blockchain Island” based on the incredible steps made by the administration. Notably, it has a governmental authority whose mandate is certifying distributed ledger platforms and offering frameworks necessitated when establishing ICOs

As a result, Malta has become a force to reckon with in the blockchain space based on its friendliness. The nation has also been making steps in ensuring that blockchain education is integrated into the populace because of its exceptional capabilities. 

The University of Malta is offering a Masters of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology with the first enrollment taking place this October. Presently, this program has attracted nearly 35 students.

The Master’s program is noble and unique because it is the only DLT-specific in this nation. Realistically, there are a few similar programs across the globe. 

As reported by Coindesk on 20 Oct, Malta’s Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat, has been making consistent efforts in ensuring that the nation becomes the global trailblazer in blockchain technology

The Masters Program Director, Joshua Ellul, has asserted that those enrolled in the Master’s program will be part of the future blockchain specialists that steer the world forward.

As reported by Blockchain.News in August, the present-day blockchain industry is being hindered by the structural scarcity of talents. The Masters of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology being offered in Malta is a positive move in eradicating this challenge.
