Participants in the technical workshops that will take place have the opportunity to get certified at BAC by demonstrating their skills in each workshop that takes place within the activity calendar.

In addition to the training, the alliance will enable BAC to organize a “demo day” at which different teams, startups or individual programmers can present a development idea in the AVA blockchain. Four startups will be selected who will be supported in promoting their idea in AVA. They can be nominated before the Grant Network to receive funding for the implementation. As indicated, the date and program will be released on the AVA demo day in the coming days.

Ricardo Vázquez, Business Development Growth Lead of AVA Labs for the Hispanic market, mentioned that together with the Blockchain Academy Chile they will “serve a community with many challenges, in which the introduction of decentralized tools increases in addition to their young population. It is very much active in the creation of applications that solve the region’s own problems and remove the language barrier. “

On the other hand, Cristóbal Pereira, CEO of LatAmTech and instructor at Blockchain Academy Chile, said that he sees “a lot of potential in the industry” and is motivated to “be part of the change”. He added that he has been very interested in AVA Labs since he learned about the project and that he is also interested in his “view of the global financial market”.
