Anchorage Digital, IEEE Portugal Section Partner on Blockchain/DLT Education Initiatives

Anchorage Digital and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Portugal Section are pleased to announce a partnership “focused on educating the next generation of engineers and technologists about blockchain, distributed systems, and cryptography.”

Together, Anchorage and IEEE Portugal (with more than 1,300 members in the country) plan to “host a series of IEEE networking events to educate members on the technical aspects of crypto and careers in crypto and blockchain technologies.”

Two upcoming events will kick off their joint goals “in advancing technology and building a global community of engineers.”

IEEE Portugal’s Leadership Camp from 1–2 October, 2022, “with IEEE sharing details on social media.”

A webinar series called “Engineering in Discussion” scheduled in December 2022 “will enhance IEEE members’ technical knowledge about crypto assets.”

Diogo Mónica, President and Co-Founder of Anchorage Digital, said:

“An important part of Anchorage’s workforce is based in Portugal. We intend to increase that presence and continuously nurture Portuguese tech talent by partnering with high-profile institutions like IEEE Portugal,” 

Rodolfo Oliveira, Chair of IEEE Portugal Section, said:

“IEEE’s mission is to advance technology for the benefit of humanity, and we are proud to partner with Anchorage so our members can learn more about how crypto is changing the global financial system,”

With 20% of its employees based in Portugal, Anchorage has “a significant presence in the country and is actively hiring for a number of roles, including engineers and other technical staff.”

Partnering with the IEEE “supports Anchorage’s ambitious hiring goals by strengthening our relationship with Portugal’s emerging technical talent at the university and graduate level, and building much-needed literacy around cryptography and blockchain.”

As covered, Anchorage Digital is “a regulated crypto platform that provides institutions with integrated financial services and infrastructure solutions.”

With the first federally chartered crypto bank in the US, Anchorage “offers institutions a combination of secure custody, regulatory compliance, product breadth, and client service.”

Founded in 2017, Anchorage is “valued at over $3 billion and is backed by leading institutions including Andreessen Horowitz, GIC — Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, Goldman Sachs, KKR, and Visa.”

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Anchorage “is remote-friendly with offices in New York, New York; Porto, Portugal; Singapore; and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Learn more at, on Twitter @Anchorage, and LinkedIn.”

As noted in the update, IEEE Portugal Section is “the Portuguese operating organizational unit of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, with more than 400,000 members in more than 160 countries.”

IEEE and its members “inspire a global community through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.”
