(Ecofin Agency) - On April 14, 2019, International blockchain firm Belfrics Group signed a partnership agreement with Dar Es Salaam tech institute to train young talents in the blockchain technology. Belfrics Academy SDN BHD, Belfrics’ arm in charge of international training and development, will help the two parties meet the growing demand for blockchain experts.
“We all know that the Internet is filled with so many online courses on Blockchain technology. But the sad reality is that, the quality of talent and knowledge that is out there, is not even close to what the industry needs. There is still a humungous knowledge-gap, and a huge void in terms of the quality and quantity of blockchain talent in the market. This is not only an African problem ; this is a world problem!” said Praveenkumar Vijayakumar, founder and CEO of Belfrics Group. The training provided by the two parties will help reverse the trend in the continent.
Aziz Chonya, director of Belfrics Tanzania, indicates that the blockchain technology will provide Tanzanians, the youth in particular, the possibility to secure “meaningful opportunities where they can apply their talents, ideas and expertise to advance the Country's economic, Industrialization and social development.”
