Polkadot launches 2nd phase of blockchain academy in Argentina



Polkadot’s education initiative, the Polkadot Blockchain Academy, is set to start the second round of blockchain education at the university of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Following the announcement on Twitter, the Program is targeted at equipping engineers with the right knowledge to build better Web3 products.

Polkadot Blockchain Academy was launched in 2022 by Gavin Wood, the founder of Polkadot alongside other professionals from Parity Technologies and the Web3 Foundation. The first edition was held as an intensive in-person course at Cambridge University from July 11th to August 7th, 2022.

The academy is designed to be a physical classroom experience that covers a thorough explanation and understanding of blockchain technology while using Polkadot and Substrate as the starting point. 

Participants will learn about economics, governance, game theory, cryptography, peer-based and distributed network systems, systems and API design, and more, which will lead to the building of blockchains as the practical side of the program. 

According to Polkadot, the program is open to anyone with a knowledge of software engineering, whether in Web2 trying to migrate into Web3 or already developing in the Web3 space. 

The future of Polkadot, and crypto in Argentina

In the first week of February 2023, the Web3 Foundation, one of the organizations behind the Polkadot project, explained that DOT, the native token of the Polkadot blockchain, cannot be addressed as a security. Asserting its stand, the organization explained that DOT is software instead as the blockchain has more than 66 different blockchains built on it as of October 2022.

All of these are coming at a time when the security firms like the SEC are creating structures that define crypto assets as either securities or commodities. Also, the Web3 Foundation extracted support for its argument from the case between the SEC and Ripple.

Argentina has shown a huge affinity for digital assets, and one of the latest steps taken by the country to position itself in the crypto industry is a forthcoming set of requirements to be created by the nation’s National Securities Commission for crypto companies in Argentina.
