Walton Blockchain Institute has just recently partnered with the Korean Standards Association (KSA) for promoting advanced research and development for blockchain technology and integration.
The said institute has just recently opened in Seoul, South Korea earlier in June, with the aim to promote further blockchain research and development, as well as to educate leaders in the said field. On the other hand, the KSA is a governmental organization under the wing of the country’s Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy, with the chief goal to promote and accelerate management quality and productivity in science and technology.
If there’s one common thing that the two organizations have set their sights on, it is education, particularly blockchain technology and integration. Lim Hyeon Cheol, Korea Standards Association’s Managing Director, affirmed the goal:
“The achievement of the blockchain educations is our current priority and the cultivation of blockchain talents is the cornerstone for the development of the future blockchain technology.”
Parallel to this, the merger also saw the need for a comprehensive system of private certification and verification — one which solution can be provided by blockchain technology. In light of this, the Walton Blockchain Institute will offer its expertise to train and arm experts in the said field, probably in the second half of 2018 onwards.
Finally, the merger will be anticipating to cooperate with the South Korean government to implement laws that would be beneficial to every party involved.
