Binance Smart Chain (BSC), the decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible token (NFT) infrastructure, has confirmed its plans of working with information technology universities internationally via the $100 million Talent Development (TD) program that is “focused on advancing research, education, and career opportunities in crypto and emerging technologies.”
Being a part of $1 billion Growth Fund, the program is “designed to spread awareness and increase crypto-native talent to enable the future growth and innovation of blockchain and cryptocurrencies,” according to an update shared with CI.
The TD program will be targeting different sets of challenges and audiences “across four major categories, namely: Investments, career opportunities, awareness conferences and community support,” the announcement revealed.
Freddie NG, BSC Talent Development Coordinator, stated:
“Being one of the largest DeFi blockchains, BSC’s ecosystem hosts a multitude of growth and career-driven opportunities. We’re looking to tap into tech talent pools and create resources for the betterment of the entire cryptospace.”
BSC will be supporting innovation and development of emerging technologies (Emtech) and concepts across universities, educational organizations and institutes to “help these academic sectors penetrate the cryptocurrency markets.”
With this effort, BSC aims to “increase the growth of local developer communities,” the update noted while adding that this includes connecting crypto job aspirants “with suitable career options across marketing, tech, business, and security and internship opportunities in and outside of the BSC ecosystem.”
BSC will also be sponsoring a wide array of live events “focused on crypto education at various leading information technology and research based institutions and universities. A list of these universities will soon be announced on its official channels.”
