Former Chief Developers Of Alibaba And Baidu Launch A Blockchain Academy

Developers of the largest giant companies in China are creating an academy focused on blockchain technology. Its goal is to contribute to the development of the next generation of talent in the field of fintech.

According to ETHnews , Alibaba's former chief architects, Jianxiang Moe and Baidu, Haiyang Xu, are joining together to establish an educational institution for training the personnel for the fintech industry - the blockchain academy - in China. Investors have already invested $ 100 million in the project.

The curriculum will be devoted to the field of fintech. Details of when and where the academy will be built are not yet disclosed.

There are only a few hundred people in China who can write codes with a public key, which leaves plenty of room for demand. This is what the academy hopes to change by training 50-100 "generals" who will lead the teams for blockchain development.

- explained Jianxiang Mo.

Xu and Mo predict that by the end of 2018 the educational platform will be put into operation.

Recall that the Internet giant Baidu, which previously worked Haiyang Xu, last autumn joined the Internet consortium Hyperledger as a premier participant. In January of this year, Baidu launched an open platform such as "blockchain as a service".
