Encode Club and BitDAO announce a long-term partnership to educate and accelerate blockchain talent. Using Encode’s expertise and talent network, the programme will be one of the most significant educational initiatives in open finance and the decentralized economy.
The Encode Club x BitDAO Programme
With the dramatic growth in crypto, there is an urgent need for skilled individuals to continue the pace of innovation and expand economic opportunities for all. Encode Club and BitDAO are taking the lead in that effort. Their 18-month partnership will bring new talent to the space by training individuals in the skills necessary to secure employment or start projects.
Specifically, the Encode Club x BitDAO programme includes:
- Monthly educational workshops to teach newcomers about blockchain.
- 2 x Solidity bootcamps where web 2.0 developers learn intensively every day for ten weeks.
- 4 x Month-long hackathons to build exceptional early-stage projects.
- 2 x Accelerators to help hackathon projects scale into startups.
Encode Club CEO Anthony Beaumont says of the programme,
“There is simultaneous demand within crypto to onboard talent alongside massive demand from non-crypto talent to get into crypto. We truly believe the bridge is education and opportunity, and this long-term partnership provides just that to an extent not seen in crypto before.”
Representing BitDAO, Alec Taggart of Windranger Labs adds,
“Total value locked is a common growth metric in DeFi. Also important will be the talent and R&D resources the sector can accrue. We are excited to work with Encode Club to do our part in helping to grow the total talent locked in DeFi.”
