Japan-based Emurgo has set up an academy in Bengaluru to educate developers about blockchain technology and Cardano.

(According to information available on Cardano website, it is a decentralised public blockchain and cryptocurrency project and is fully open source.)

Stating that education is the root for all future developments in the blockchain space, E Venkatesan, Chief Executive Officer, Emurgo said that the company trains developers to be proficient in this emerging technology and helps deepen their understanding of third generation blockchain protocols such as Cardano to enable them work in organisations adopting this technology.

“India has only around 19,000 blockchain developers and architects. This data could be slightly higher, but considering that both Central and State Governments understand the importance of blockchain and are setting up panels to understand its implementation, we foresee a huge demand for such technologists,” Venkatesan told BusinessLine.

Emurgo plans to train around 2.5 lakh freshers and working professionals in the first year of the launch. has started by enrolling 15 professionals in the first batch and plans to add 2 -3 batches in the coming months.

“Professionals having exposure to any programming language with 2 years work experience can register for the programme,” he said.

The company is planning to set up five more offices at Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Pune in the next 24 months to meet the demand for blockchain developers and architects.
