California-based Golden Gate University is set to offer blockchain and cryptocurrency education in collaboration with the decentralized web development-centered organization Filecoin Foundation. 
The learning will focus on decentralized storage, technologies behind Web3, and the next generation of the internet while capitalizing on the crypto sector’s growth, Filecoin Foundation said in a press statement on September 7.
Under the program, the institution’s new Filecoin Foundation Blockchain Academy Lab will host meetups and training seminars to cater to the growing interest in cryptocurrencies at a higher education level. 
“Over the past year, we’ve seen a surging interest in the technology powering cryptocurrency and Web3. As a Bay Area law school, we want to provide our students–and our larger community–with the resources they need to learn about these innovative, emerging technologies and their socially beneficial uses,” said Michele Neitz, Blockchain Law for Social Good Center Founding Director. 
The education program has already outlined key beneficiaries, including government officials and professors. They will be provided with resources to understand decentralized technology considering it a new segment of the education system. 
Neitz revealed that following plans to set up the lab, it has already received inquiries about training from government entities. 
“We expect to host government officials and policymakers, professors from law schools and other educational institutions, attorneys and industry leaders, and students from all walks of life,” she said. 
The lab has scheduled its first annual conference on October 20 and 21, ahead of the start of the teaching programs set for 2023.
Additionally, the lab at Golden Gate University is expected to unveil its Teaching Fellow Program that will churn out blockchain experts in legal education. Besides the university, there are plans to extend the program to a community college. 
“One of the most exciting things about blockchain technology is that it creates the ability to program money, which can happen instantly and automatically with no intermediary — even across borders. This kind of transaction would be untenable using traditional payment systems,” she said in the email,” said Marta Belcher, president, and chair of the Filecoin Foundation. 
Furthermore, through the virtual events, the lab is projected to reach out to students globally, especially those from underserved populations. 
Overall, as the crypto sector grows, different entities have increasingly focused on offering related education. As reported by Finbold, the University of Cincinnati (UC) also unveiled a program to teach students cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and new financial technologies.
