Cryptocurrencies have become mainstream, and the underlying technology known as blockchain has gained a new level of prominence.

Billions of dollars are being invested in this new asset class and cryptocurrency companies are increasing the number of workers at an exceptional rate in recent years. Thus, out of all the possible options, many of those looking to increase their chances of getting hired in this sector find blockchain degrees offered at universities as an excellent opportunity to start their career.

Higher education institutions are no strangers to this and many offer courses or include blockchain-related modules in their curricula. We are therefore pleased to see how, in a recent report published by Bankless Times, the University of Salamanca has been named as one of the best universities in the world for blockchain-related degrees. The Master in Blockchain and Smart Contracts managed by the BISITE Research Group has been positioned along with other great houses of study as a benchmark in the training plan in this area.

This is a fantastic achievement, and we are very proud to have our efforts in this industry recognized. Through education and research, we can push the frontiers of knowledge and help shape the future for the better.
