Blockchain technology training arouses interest in Spain

May 18, 2020

The technological changes that will occur due to the corona virus crisis include the implementation of blockchain technology. This was explained by the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia in an article signed by Raquel Sáez.

“Without realizing it, we produce, manage and save an enormous amount of certified information in our everyday life at any time and every hour. The challenge is to store all this data securely and without intermediaries. Bomb-proof, or in this case hackers, “said Sáez.

“”Blockchain technology is one of the technological changes that will occur as a result of the corona virus crisis. It is a blockchain that contains information and can secure it thanks to its decentralized architecture, in which numerous users participate. Another advantage: intermediaries such as banks or government organizations themselves are eliminated, ”he added later.

Blockchain basics

Between May 19 and 28, 2020, a blockchain basics course will be offered by GBA Madrid,. The initiative is carried out via the Bitcobie training platform.

Juan Pablo Mejía, Director of GBA Madrid, said: “As part of our ongoing goal of educating our members and the public about blockchain technology and its properties, we at GBA offer various ideal certifications for those who want to contribute their knowledge of Blockchain technology to the next level. For this reason, we would like to announce this GBA Madrid has decided to team up with Bitcobie to offer its international certification Blockchain Fundamentals ”.

“Although GBA certifications are usually issued in person, this time we offer the Live Blockchain Fundamentals certification digitally. This gives attendees more flexibility in accessing the sessions (as they can see the live sessions or recordings if it is more convenient for them) and makes it easier for us to reach people in other cities and countries around the world than in other ways they didn’t access this course, “he added later.

On the other hand, Álvaro Cobarro, CEO of Bitcobie, said:This certification is aimed at officials, academics and professionals who want to gain a general understanding of blockchain technology, including its origins, operations, cryptocurrencies, crypto assets, smart contracts, key use cases of the technology, and more.“”
