A great place to visit for gorgeous sceneries and culture, Malta has been regarded as a blockchain island due to the nation being a pioneer in the world with established regulatory frameworks for distributed ledger technologies (DLT), initial coin offerings (ICO) and digital currencies.
Besides, the country has rapidly established its reputation as a hub for digital innovation and is preparing its finance sector for an AI-powered and data-driven future. Many developers of blockchain-based platforms have reportedly relocated or established their offices in the country.
Binance and OKEx are among giant companies reportedly planning to move to Malta.
As such, The University of Malta began the first course of Masters Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology early this month, with more than 30 postgraduates registered. The course is said to be the very first available in the nation, with only several other such courses available globally.
As reported in CoinDesk, Joshua Ellul, the Masters’ Program Director said that they are already more than 10 organizations reaching out to his DLT students and the course is believed to bring bright future perspectives toward the students as the emerging technology is now being used worldwide
Moving forward, the Masters’ Program Director might consider starting a course training a hybrid programmer-lawyer, to essentially create lawyers who can code.
