Tether Launches Initiative to Promote Blockchain and Digital Asset Education in Taiwan

June 19, 2024 – Tether, The cryptocurrency industry giant today announced a partnership with Taipei University of Technology (NTUT), also known as Taipei Tech, to enhance blockchain and digital asset education in the region. The initiative aims to equip students with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills on cutting-edge technologies, and foster a comprehensive understanding of blockchain technology, digital assets, Bitcoin, and stablecoins.

The “Blockchain and Digital Assets” educational program was first launched at the National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT) School of Management and attracted over 110 students. The course quickly became one of the most popular courses at NTUT’s School of Information and Finance. Inspired by this success, other universities have agreed to collaborate with Tether to launch similar programs.

Through this collaboration, Tether will leverage its expertise in blockchain technology, digital assets, Bitcoin and stablecoins to advance academic programs and research initiatives. These programs will build on the successful course materials developed for NTUT and be enhanced with the support of industry experts assembled by Tether. The programs are designed to prepare students for responsible and informed participation in this rapidly evolving field and will cover the following key areas:

  1. Basic knowledge of blockchain and cryptocurrency:
    • It provides a comprehensive education on the fundamentals of blockchain and cryptocurrency from both a technical and business perspective.
  2. Developing critical thinking skills:
    • Develop students’ critical thinking skills and enable them to independently analyze and evaluate the reliability of various cryptocurrency information, which will help them identify scams and understand potential risks.
  3. Risk Perception and Investment Principles:
    • We emphasize the high-risk and highly volatile speculative nature of cryptocurrencies and promote rational and prudent investment principles to avoid encouraging speculative behavior.
  4. Legal and Regulatory Education:
    • It integrates legal and regulatory content to help students understand regulatory policies and the importance of compliance in their work.
  5. Industry insights and career prospects:
    • We invite industry experts to campus to share about industry trends and employment outlook, thus providing students with a first-hand industry perspective and experience.

“Tether’s education initiatives align perfectly with these universities’ vision to equip students with the knowledge and skills to advance the adoption of digital assets in Taiwan.” Tether CEO Paolo Ardoino said:“By focusing on comprehensive knowledge, Tether is working with these prestigious universities to help develop the next generation of blockchain professionals in the region.”

Over the past two years, Tether and local organizations have sponsored more than 30 students and professors to attend Lugano’s prestigious Plan B Summer School. This year, Tether has supported 15 additional students and professors to attend Plan B Business School.
