UNITED STATES, December 4, 2023 / -- The Blockchain Academy, a leader in blockchain education and training, is proud to announce its membership as a Platinum Member and a Genesis Block Founding Member of the National DigiFoundry (NDF), established by the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) with a grant from the National Science Foundation. This prestigious consortium, including notable members like Microsoft, IBM, Constellation Network, and BioCrowd, marks a significant step towards the innovative management and responsible use of digital assets, including cryptocurrencies.

The NDF, a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, operates at the forefront of digital asset management. It is dedicated to exploring global standards and best practices for digital asset exchange and leveraging blockchain technologies. The NDF's mission resonates with The Blockchain Academy's commitment to providing top-tier education and skill validation in this rapidly evolving field.

As part of its membership, The Blockchain Academy will contribute to the NDF's educational framework by offering comprehensive training programs and proctored exams, leading to recognized certifications in blockchain technology, AI, and Web3 from the Web3 Certification Board (W3CB). This initiative underscores the critical need for verified skills and knowledge in these emerging technologies, ensuring that professionals are well-equipped to navigate and contribute to this dynamic landscape.

"The collaboration with UTSA, Forward Edge-AI Inc, and the support from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of the Treasury, is a testament to our collective commitment to advancing the digital asset ecosystem," said Ryan Williams, CEO, The Blockchain Academy. "Joining hands with industry giants like Microsoft and IBM, we are set to redefine the standards of education and skill verification in the blockchain domain."

We invite you to join us in this collaborative endeavor to drive innovation, enhance economic resilience, and effectuate lasting change by working together.”

The Blockchain Academy's involvement in the NDF extends beyond education. NDF member tokens can be used to join various NDF working groups and to access The Blockchain Academy's training courses.
