The Blockchain Academy Inc. becomes a Founding Member of the Blockchain Certification Association

Englewood Cliffs, NJ –  Blockchain technology has fundamentally changed the technology markets.  Industry sectors from: finance, insurance, healthcare, automotive, fashion, agricultural and luxury goods are all embracing blockchain.

Cisco recently published a report suggesting that over 10% of all global economic activity will be on a blockchain in the next 6 years.  To achieve this, industry and companies need to hire a lot of blockchain developers.  The biggest obstacle to this is that there has not been a single source which provides an Industry Standard Certification for blockchain technology.

“The reason the Blockchain Certification Association was created is to provide a useful benchmark as to the skills of blockchain developers.  Currently, training companies were issuing their own certifications, many with dubious value.  It perplexes me to think that you can take a 6 hour developer course and then end up with a certification representing mastery”, say Bryant Nielson, Executive Director of The Blockchain Academy.

The Blockchain Certification Association seeks to become the Industry standard for blockchain certifications.

“We are very pleased to be a part of this effort to improve the value of these technical skills,” Mr Nielson says.
