The company will also contribute to improving the curriculum so as to match the recruitment standards of businesses and market trends.

“I totally appreciate FUNiX’s approach in renewing learners’ minds. Through this partnership, the company hopes to bring practical knowledge and experience to people who are passionate and interested in blockchain, creating a competitive advantage for human resources in the technology sector to contribute to Vietnam and our company,” said CTO Huy Nguyen.

Commenting on blockchain, CTO Huy Nguyen considered blockchain as a technology that can bring breakthrough applications in all aspects of life. The solutions that blockchain provides, especially smart contracts, will help people to reach simple agreements and cooperation without requiring mutual trust.

Mr. Huy assessed that the blockchain industry in Vietnam is highly potential and has its own advantages. Unlike the US or Europe, Vietnam is still in the process of digital transformation, blockchain will not have to compete to replace the legacy systems, thereby it is easier for organisations to apply blockchain.

Also according to the CTO, the younger generation in Vietnam is talented and agile in approaching IT. Open government policies allow everyone to create and fulfill their start up dream. However, blockchain is more difficult because it requires general and in-depth knowledge of finance, computer science, coding, as well as community development. Furthermore, since this is a new technology, the resources such as literature, complementary solutions, and manpower for it are still limited.

KardiaChain was founded in 2018, with the ambition to bring equality of opportunity to everyone through the widespread adoption of blockchain technology. The company currently has 30 employees concentrated in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, and three offices in Silicon Valley, Seoul, and Singapore. KardiaChain team has experience in learning and working from many universities and large corporations in the world (including three Tech Leads are engineers of Google).

The company is actively seeking qualified candidates for system infrastructure with the knowledge and experience in blockchain platforms. Knowledge of Golang, Solidity; operating experience, system analysis, and business analysis will be a great advantage.
