The second best university of the world, based in Stanford, California, will open up a center for studying the blockchain technology. The idea was sponsored by a bunch of cryptocurrency projects and startups, including OmiseGO, Ethereum Foundation and others.
The lab will be engaged in analyzing and researching this innovative technology and also coming up with new ways of its application and implementation into education and other spheres of life. However, this is not going to be the only focus of this center. The official press release states:
“Center scientists are creating courses to help future students and working professionals use blockchain to develop financial instruments, protect intellectual property, manage vital records and more.”
The founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin expressed his excitement about the upcoming opening.
