A course called “Development of blockchain-strategy” was developed by the innovation center RMCH Blockchain Innovation Hub and partners, including the Asian centre Fintech Stone & Chalk and consulting firm Accenture. It lasts 8 weeks and includes a hands-on program that goes beyond the conceptual aspect of the Blockchain, so that the course participants have the opportunity not only to obtain theoretical knowledge about the blockchain, but also to learn how this knowledge to use in practice.
Jason Potts, Director of the Innovation center Blockchain, told Business Insider Australia:
“A large part of this course is to help managers and business leaders to understand not only how this new technology works, and what it stands for, but also how it can be used for business strategies”.
General Manager Stone & Chalk, Alan Price, connects between FINTECH, banks and Blockchain and considers that such a course is a must:
RMIT University is not the first in the world who has offered this training. UC Berkeley offers an interdisciplinary course on the Blockchain, and in southern California in June, will study potential career opportunities in the field of Blockchain for students.
In December 2017 the Australian stock exchange (ASX) announced that they are the world’s first securities exchange, which uses Blockchain technology to replace its current system of processing shares.
In January of this year, Brisbane airport announced that plans to introduce cryptocurrency in one of their terminals, shops and restaurants that will accept Bitcoin, Ether and Dash.
