Tether introduces a cryptocurrency and blockchain teaching program in Switzerland.
“It is critical that educational institutions be established to help better enlighten not only traders and investors but also future business owners,” Paolo Ardoino stated. As part of a collaboration between the local administration and Tether, Switzerland’s southern city of Lugano will host a blockchain and cryptocurrency-focused school (USDT). Tether and Lugano announced on Thursday that they would start the Plan Summer School with an aim “to offer blockchain and crypto education to the mainstream.” The education facility is part of Tether’s “Plan” activities with the Swiss city, which have included the legalization of Bitcoin (BTC), Tether (USDT), and the LVGA token.
The two-week program, which will take place in July, will feature speakers such as Blockstream CEO Adam Back and Tether and Bitfinex chief technical officer Paolo Ardoino, according to the school’s website. Basic introductions to stablecoins and cryptocurrencies, as well as blockchain research and regulatory policies around digital assets, are among the topics covered. “As adoption drives involvement in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, it is critical that educational institutions are put in place to assist better enlighten not just traders and investors, but future company owners eager to apply these financial tools into their daily life,” Ardoino added. The Plan school program, co-organized with the adjacent Franklin University Switzerland, or FUS, and backed by the Università Della Svizzera Italiana and FUS’ Taylor Institute, aims to train a new generation of employees with the skills required in the digital asset field. Other crypto-friendly countries, such as El Salvador, where Bitcoin has been legal money since September 2021, have opened similar instruction centers in an effort to encourage acceptance.
