Europechain today announces it has delivered an advanced EOSIO blockchain course at the University of Geneva as part of its official Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) on blockchain and DLT. 

The course

The blockchain CAS at the University of Geneva delivers 12 official European (ECTS) credits and is led by Dr. Jean-Marc Seigneur, who has published more than 100 scientific peer-reviewed papers in the field of decentralized trust. The CAS covers several DLT such as Ethereum, NEO, Hashgraph Hedera, Libra, Komodo, Hyperledger, Binance Chain and of course EOS. 

The main focus of the certificate is to design and prototype a DLT system covering the main technical solutions, the business and legal aspects, thanks to several international lawyers specialized in DLT, new trends and the know-how to develop and deploy a decentralized application or smart contract across a wide range of technology stacks with the mentoring of the experts teachers. 

Full information on the course is available here.

Why blockchain technology?

Blockchain in general offers a paradigm shift in the way data is handled, stored, and transferred for traditional businesses, governments, and non-profit organizations. The first stage of adoption is always education, demonstrating the next wave to professionals and enthusiasts of the potential benefits. The EOSIO Blockchain is considered Blockchain 3.0 because of its zero transaction fees, TPS rates of 10,000 per second and fast scaling ability.

The lectures were given at the university campus by the CTO of EOS Amsterdam, a member of Europechain. He is well known under the nickname “cc32d9” in the EOSIO community. Details of the course content can be seen here.

‘cc32d9’ is a senior software architect, who has been in the industry of software and telecommunications for more than 20 years. He started working in EOSIO space in June 2018, shortly after the EOS mainnet launch. Most of his work is published as open-source and is described in detail in his Medium blog.
