Tezos has announced that it’s going to be partnering with Tribe, a Singapore government-backed blockchain platform, to launch a training initiative for developers on the Tezos blockchain. To be specific, the Tezos Southeast Asia (TSA) will be overseeing the collaboration for Tezos’ part.
In a blog post, Tezos revealed that the partnership aims to equip developers in the Southeast Asian region the necessary knowledge to build on the Tezos blockchain. In turn, the company expects that these developers will create real-world solutions on its blockchain network, effectively strengthening its position in the crypto space.
The initiative is slated to launch in the first quarter of 2020, with a select group of professionals initially receiving the training, which they would then pass down to their students. TSA President Caleb Kow underscored the significance of this initial phase and how it would play out in the long run.
“By enabling trainers with a good knowledge of Tezos blockchain technology, they will be able to amplify the impact in their respective teams through the continual transfer and sharing of knowledge to new learners”, Kow said.
Tezos trying to spread the word
Meanwhile, Boston Chapter President at Tezos Commons Ken Garofalo is also hard at work in spreading Tezos across other territories. Garofalo spoke with Yahoo Finance and highlighted his role in building the Tezos community and add new validators to the network.
Among his duties is to simplify the terms and jargon involved in the Tezos blockchain to easily explain the concepts to anyone who’s interested to explore the network. Garofalo admitted that understanding Tezos can be pretty intimidating and they’re looking for ways to eliminate that façade.
Earn XTZ by teaching yourself about crypto
Tezos is even offering rewards in the form of its native currency if people take the time to read about the crypto market. Anyone who participates can earn up to $6 worth of Tezos (XTZ), which is then used to bolster the network’s security measures through staking.
All of these efforts are an attempt to accelerate blockchain adoption, something that has yet to happen due to the complicated nature of the technology, strict regulations – or lack thereof – and the general fears surrounding the crypto-verse. With these initiatives, however, Tezos is making sure that professionals in this nascent industry will continue to grow in number and the community grows in the years that’ll follow.
