Guiyang Launches A Blockchain-Focused Vocational College

Guiyang blockchain college

            The Inauguration Ceremony of the College

In an effort to broaden the use of blockchain tech, Guiyang launched a blockchain-centred vocational college on March 31, together with the opening of the first training program designed to build a great team of blockchain experts.

As one of China’s least developed city, Guiyang has never stopped exploring the best path toward prosperity. Since 2014, Guiyang has taken the exciting opportunity of the big data industry to add jobs and boost economy. With advantages of cool weather, sufficient power supply and lower electricity prices, Guiyang has emerged as China’s big data center. People may find it hard to believe it, but Guiyang, whose GDP only ranked 77th in China in 2015, is the first local government to issue a whitepaper on blockchain development and application on Dec. 31,2016.

Guiyang started the blockchain college as a way of integrating resources at universities, enterprises, communities and governments to make Guiyang blockchain ecosystem sound and sustainable. The college will work with its international counterparts to combine training, informative talks and workshops to train and certify more blockchain experts.

40 people from local governments and enterprises take part in the training course. The course will guide people through 30 days to help them grow in confidence as they master blockchain technologies. It is composed of online training and traditional training where highly-skilled trainers will meet all clients for one or two days per week.

It is said that the college aims to train 2000 people in 2017 to develop, test and scale blockchain applications.

    i know IBM and Nasdaq has been working on blockchain for years. But now as China is joining the race, i wonder will China be the world leader in this area or Japan who acknowledged bitcoin as a legal currency.

    Well both china and japan is strong and have the quality to lead such a thing, but one thing in my mind that im sure, if either japan nor china will reinvent or acknowledge bitcoin, i will still used it for good, because i dont really matter if what country is leader specifically china or japan, as long as it can be used for everyone

    Japan and China just copy stuff… real invention will come from Europe or Australia, Canada etc. Even in the USA, people are a bit too afraid of the governent.

    It’s becoming like that everywhere to be honest.While a lot of the inventive spirit has come from Europe and the West in general, there is a growing number of people who simply don’t care and are, frankly, not willing to go out and actually do anything. The entire system is looking to collapse in on itself, and this factors in heavily as to which country will be “leading the charge” so to speak.I’m expecting that the lead organization for the push forwards already exists. The question becomes, now, who?

    You’re Forgetting the point, IBM & Nasdaq has been working to reach his advantages from the blockchain itself. There is no leader in this area. the blockchain development is still keeping the decentralized aspect. In my knowledge, most of them are working on the sidechain development.But the japan’s decision for accepting bitcoin will be the first in the bitcoin community. I mean to be an innovator for another countries or institutions.

    but the hard fact is that Europe or USA will not invest much in this area, they’ve got a lot to deal with. China, however, seems to do whatever it can to lead this blockchain race. PBOC, SSE, Alibaba… Alibaba started a university to help people do biz online. And now Guiyang launched a college to train more blockchain experts.

    No country, bank or institution will recognize bitcoin as a national currency because those corporations need to control the supply and the supply of bitcoin is controlled by unrelated whales. Also no one has control over the total supply.
