Cardano has been integrated into the Blockchain Curriculum of the University of Zurich for the school year 2021.
The university has a curriculum that revolves around blockchain called “Deep Dive into Blockchain.” Lecturers from the Tezos Foundation and IOST have been called for the course, and the CEO of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson, will be making an appearance as well.
The course is part of the institution’s summer semester for its “Linking Economics, Technology and Law” program at the university.
Despite being uncommon, blockchain classes have already made it into the academic agenda of universities across the world, and the trend will likely continue with the emergence of blockchain and cryptocurrencies as the future of digital innovation.
What the integration means
Cardano being integrated into the curriculum would mean that the value of the blockchain network in the cryptocurrency sector is now being given significant recognition.
Being included in the course also meant that the Cardano ecosystem is now seen as a serious contender on a larger scale and not just for personal use.
The amazing feat will also cement and elevate the role of Cardano in the blockchain industry and will prove many doubters wrong. Simply put, this development has put the public blockchain on a whole new level.
The Cardano is a decentralized public blockchain and digital currency project. It was built by Input Output (IOHK), fully open-source, and has its own token, the ADA.
In hopes of delivering more advanced features than what was already developed, it is developing a smart contract platform.
Cardano is also the first known blockchain platform that evolved out of a scientific philosophy and a research-first approach, describing itself as a third-generation platform that targets to improve the shortcomings of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), which it terms first generation and second generation, respectively.
