Students of the CUBO program will receive scholarships to complete the elite phase.
Once graduated, developers will be able to travel to Lugano and Italy to attend new camps.
21 young people from El Salvador were classified to complete the elite phase of CUBO+, El Salvador’s university program to train developers of Bitcoin and the Lightning network.
This was reported today by Stacy Herbert, who is a director of the National Bitcoin Office, which coordinates this type of educational activities and others related to the pioneer of cryptocurrencies in Salvadoran territory.
In a Tweet released today, Herbert explains that of the 54 college students who started the program, “21 have just received full scholarships” to complete the next phase of the CUBO+ program.
It means that students will receive full board and lodging for the next three weeks. In this phase, young attend conferences and boot camps with engineers experienced and educators. Among them Peter Todd, Jimmy Song and Lisa Neigut and others.
“And, by the end of the course, students will be Bitcoin and Lightning developers ready to build the great future of El Salvador.” Herbert adds.
After completing this elite phase and graduating as Bitcoin and Lightning developers, young people will have guaranteed positions in the main companies in the industryincluding Bitfinex, Strike, Galoy, Ibex, Tiankii and others.
More education for Salvadoran Bitcoin developers
Later, they will have the opportunity to travel to Lugano, Switzerland, and then to Italy to attend new camps, hackathon and tutorials in October.
It is worth remembering that El Salvador opened a Bitcoin embassy in the Swiss city of Lugano with the idea of working together on best practices to boost the adoption of BTC in their respective territories. In fact, CUBO+ is the result of the agreements between Lugano and El Salvador.
As previously reported by CriptoNoticias, the first phase of the CUBO program began in April. And as part of this experience, the students attended an in-person lecture by Saifedean Ammous, author of The Bitcoin Standard (The Bitcoin Pattern).
