Bangladesh Funds Graduates To Learn Blockchain
The Bangladesh government will purportedly invest funds from its $208 million IT project to send graduates for blockchain training in India and Japan.
A blockchain is the structure of data that represents a financial ledger entry, or a record of a transaction. Each transaction is digitally signed to ensure its authenticity and that no one tampers with it, so the ledger itself and the existing transactions within it are assumed to be of high integrity.
According to the report from The Daily Star, Bangladesh’s English language newspaper, Bangladesh authorities are arranging to send 100 fresh IT graduates abroad to educate and gain expertise in the distributed ledger technology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and cybersecurity.
Along with the same, the government will also send 200 computer science, software, electrical and electronic graduates to learn more about the future IT trends.
