[NEW PARTNERSHIP] Meet our newest partner: the Blockchain Revolution
From the very beginning, the BAE activities are focused on educating the professional and lay public on the benefits of blockchain technology to help speed up mass adoption. In this aspect, collaborating with the like-minded individuals and organizations and exchanging good practices is crucial. We are happy to announce a newly-established partnership with an organization from Croatia that promotes blockchain among the young people and unemployed with an aim to help them improve their competencies in the labour market. Meet the Blockchain Revolution.
Blockchain Revolution is a recently established non-profit organisation based in Croatia aiming at the education of young people about blockchain technology. They are planning to organise a series of basic and advanced blockchain lectures and similar activities in high schools and universities across Croatia and other CEE countries to inspire young people to develop blockchain-related skills and become aware of other possibilities that this cutting-edge technology is opening for everyone willing to embrace it. In this aspect, establishing new collaborations is extremely important to them:
“We are very happy that we had a chance to become a partner of the Blockchain Alliance Europe. It is an honour and privilege to partner with one of the most impactful blockchain organizations in Slovenia, which is one of the most blockchain-friendly countries in Europe, and in the whole world. Not only we have much to learn from you, but hopefully, we can contribute to activities of Blockchain Alliance Europe and help it achieve its goals.”
The organization Blockchain Revolution was founded by Vedran Mijatović and Tomislav Ditrih, the two long-time passionate followers, users and active promoters of blockchain technology, as evidenced by the MojKripto.Com blog they create. Vedran is a passionate crypto blogger, whereas Tomislav is a young lawyer with a background in finance who decided to turn his interest in blockchain into something more serious. Recently, the two have also partnered with Luka Kapetanić, a crypto investor, entrepreneur, founder and author at CoinSyncom.
Their primary target groups are high school and university students since they are most intensively thinking about careers. Also, one of the target groups is the unemployed citizens who are considering shifting their careers toward market sectors where there is a high demand for skilled labour. Namely, their long-term goal is to create a platform that will enable further training in the field of blockchain technologies as well as to connect individuals who complete programs and training courses with companies and institutions seeking blockchain talent.
The founders of the Blockchain Revolution found the inspiration for their project from Slovenia and Switzerland where crypto and blockchain industry is already flourishing, saying: “Even though Slovenia is a more mature environment for blockchain, our broader region has many similarities and we feel it is only natural to collaborate with anyone who shares our vision. Blockchain and crypto can only become a mainstream and important factor in today’s world if blockchain enthusiasts and organizations pass their knowledge and passion to other individuals and institutions. And in order to do that, we have to act together. This partnership is a small but important step towards a bright future where blockchain is an important part of our everyday lives.” Another proof they were on the right track are statistics, such as data provided by LinkedIn which testify that blockchain is the highest most in-demand skill of 2020.
President of Blockchain Alliance Tanja Bivic supports and salutes the newly-established partnership too: “As neighbouring countries, Slovenia and Croatia are socially and culturally connected, which is why following mutual goals comes to us naturally. Education is certainly key to promoting blockchain technology and can help our countries in developing competitive advantages immensely, which is why building strong partnerships in the Adriatic Region is more than welcome. I strongly believe that we need to listen to and learn from each other in order to contribute to innovative approaches in the educational and economic field.”
