Ken Weber of Ripple wants universities around the world to help students know more about the applications of blockchain technology. Specific courses dedicated to training involving digital currencies would be a spell-bounding move.
Ken spoke of how within a year, demand for blockchain programmers have soared by more than 500%. Top companies like IBM, Amazon and so on are on the lookout for “software engineers” who possess the relevant skills. Weber talked about the growing number of such ventures in top institutions across the globe.
The University Blockchain Research Initiative [UBRI] of Ripple has already roped in the University of Michigan, the University of Sao Paulo, Cornell and a dozen more. This number will only rise with the passage of time, as blockchain gets more exposure.
Even in South-Asia nations, there has been a surging necessity of advanced tech-engineers, and people who could be influential in leading roles of such companies. A recession is on the way, in spite of Nirmala Sitharaman denying problems tied to the Indian economy.

Contrary to popular belief, XRP is not “the standard”. Bitcoin is and will remain the most precious asset amongst cryptocurrencies. Centralization and involvement of banks won’t change a thing.
XRP is presently ranked at #3, beneath Ethereum but above Bitcoin Cash on coinmarketcap. The price grew at a rate of 0.88% in the course of the past 24-hours. The trading volume recorded is $1.112 billion, while the supply has 42,909,539,227 XRP coins in play. For now, the total market cap of XRP is $11.702 billion. As of this moment, XRP is priced at $0.272730 after being impacted by bears for more than a day.
Up next, XRP has to soar beyond $0.3. This will hopefully bring in a new mark for resistance and support.
