Web3 Foundation (W3F) – the organization behind development funding for projects on the ecosystem Polkadot and popular global online learning platform edX have come together to launch a series of foundation courses in blockchain technology and Polkadot.
Interested in learning the fundamentals of blockchain, Web3, and @Polkadot technology? Together with @edXOnline, we're launching Web3x – online courses for blockchain enthusiasts of all levels.— Web3 Foundation (@Web3foundation) October 11, 2022
The courses are open for enrollment now and will begin on October 27. To learn more:
The four-part series, called Web3x, will cover blockchain fundamentals, explore the Substrate software development kit, and the Rust programming language. EdX is an open online course delivery system, founded by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University in May 2012.
At the time of writing, the Web3x website contains only the first two courses including “Introduction to blockchain and Web3” – which explains the history and key terminology of blockchain, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Web3 and the technology behind them, and “Introduction to Polkadot” – providing learners with key terms about the Polkadot platform.
Both courses start on October 20, and users can join for free. Commenting on this unexpected educational launch, Web3 Foundation CEO Bertrand Perez said:
“With our partnerships with established educators around the world, we believe edX has many of the right attributes to create lasting value with the Web3 Foundation.”
Web3 Foundation was founded in 2017 in Zug, Switzerland, by co-founder Ethereum and is currently the "leading" blockchain Polkadot Gavin Wood. So far, the Web3 Foundation has funded 400 projects on Polkadot. In addition, the organization acts as a research group, focusing on cryptography, networks, and various decentralized algorithms.
Recently, the Web3 Foundation has also released the first Web3 font set exclusively for project designers, and has become the main catalyst for Polkadot to receive the trust of many people. Tether to the publisher stablecoins the biggest in the market crypto extend USDT on this blockchain.
