At this stage of Blockchain technology development, we cannot even foresee what all applications it can have and how much it can revolutionize our digital world? With time we are definitely progressing from Internet of Things to the Internet of Values and Blockchain has become our best friend as it is making data propagation instantaneous.
With the boom in technological advancements, our digital planet is changing its way to deliver value, whether it is goods & services, agreements, offers, monetary policies or vital information.
REVOLUTION IN INFORMATION INFRASTRUCTURE
The information infrastructure has completely been reformed and modified by Blockchain revolution by becoming more proprietary and distributed. Blockchain platforms allow transparent record transfer which is verified by network users across the globe. Introduction of Bitcoin gave the world a new data management infrastructure based on conventional theories, programming language, and software engineering principles. This technology has already found a broad usage across trade, finance, logistics and various industries. Giant companies like IBM has signed a partnership with MAESR to furnish better developments in this field. Other huge organizations like Bank of America and almost everyone else is profusely investing in Blockchain to widen their market penetration.

So do all these disruptions of Blockchain mean that we should introduce it in our education curriculum? Is this education even necessary for our GenX? Will it assure them a secure future and job security?
EDUCATING OUR GENX ABOUT BLOCKCHAIN
The vision of our educational institutes should be to empower our youth so that they become an asset to the nation and for this, our priority should be fostering education in computer science, business and IT.
Making our computer science education blockchain-centric will give us a workforce ready to rule current work landscapes and also fulfill the shortage of Blockchain specialists and professionals. Also, it would empower our youth to get ready for future work scenario.
The decentralized applications, token economics, and new databases can streamline various industries and in-cooperate them in the global economy.
Specializing in these new and evolving Blockchain technologies can benefit colleges and universities through new R &D opportunities. It would also equip students with required skills for the global economy. Colleges can provide Blockchain electives which can go hand-in-hand with computer science major.
The major setback at this stage is skill shortage and lack of knowledge and awareness among students about Blockchain. The future of our world lies in what we teach our students. Our universities have a great hand in building our nation and the strength lies in its vision.
Let’s dream of a beautiful future and envision a great effort from our students.
