Tertiary institution Signs MOU with Cryptography Development Initiative in Nigeria
As the rest of Africa makes an effort to secure a position of relevance in the blockchain space, Nigerian based Nile university has gone into partnership with Cryptography Development Initiative in Nigeria (CDIN), the announcement was made in the official Twitter handle of CDIN on October 16.
Prof. Aras, the institution's Vice-Chancellor(VC) of the university who spoke at the event, used the opportunity to express his pleasure in the new partnership as he believed that it would play a significant role in fortifying the students with the necessary skills needed to survive the digital space. Professor Can also bolstered the points made by the vice-chancellor by saying that this partnership was going to provide a reliable platform for students to sandwich their theory-based knowledge with helpful practicals.
CDIN happens to be a non-profit organization that aims at tackling the wide learning gap and practice of cryptography within Nigeria.
Mr. Fadele, who stood on the position of the spokesperson for CDIN, commended the warm welcome shown by the institution in a time when not many institutions recognize the need to value and integrate blockchain-related skills to the school system. The event was wrapped up with the formal signing of the MoU.
The efforts to integrate blockchain and crypto-related skills into the educational system, as seen in a report from Coinbase, have shown that rising interest of students in crypto and an increasing number of courses focused on blockchain, cryptocurrencies, or Bitcoin that are being taught across a range of disciplines. This increased interest in studying crypto at colleges and universities could pass for an indication that the future of money has a lot yet to be seen.
