CoinGeek to fund StackLab’s blockchain training program

CoinGeek to fund StackLab’s blockchain training program

CoinGeek.com is committed to building Bitcoin BCH (also known as Bitcoin Cash) into a global, low-fee peer-to-peer digital currency and there are many strands that need enhancing for that to become a reality.

The first is merchant adoption which is happening as we speak and CoinGeek are hosting a bComm conference to showcase BCH to merchants in Hong Kong on May 18th.

Another important need is to train more developers to work in blockchain technology, because experienced blockchain developers are in short supply. CoinGeek.com and its own Calvin Ayre are doing their part by contributing over USD $150,000 to fund a blockchain developer training program in the Philippines, the world’s second largest IT outsourcing destination. CoinGeek are partnering on the venture with StackLab (a StackTrek Enterprises’ company), the on-the-ground operator for the training program.

StackLab seeks to create technology hubs in next-generation cities of the Philippines, and the first of its blockchain training programs will be in the city of Iloilo.

A minimum of 50 developers will be trained on developments skills focusing on the Bitcoin BCH blockchain. Trainees will be selected at a coding tournament using a the world’s most unbiased programmer capability evaluation test, which was funded by the World Bank and is recognized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE); only participants testing in the top two levels (top 2% and 11%) will qualify for the StackLab program. After the complete the 6-month training program, the developer trainees will receive support from StackLab to find employment – with the aim of transforming developing cities such as Iloilo into new technology centers for the Philippines.

Also joining the program will be nChain, the global leader in blockchain research and development based in London, United Kingdom. nChain will help shape the training program curriculum, and provide projects for the trainees to work on. The training programs will be focused on coding on the Bitcoin BCH chain, the one true public blockchain.

This initiative is another of Calvin Ayre’s many social initiatives for the Philippines.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (segwit) Chain are Referred to as BTC coins. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash. Bitcoin BCH is the only major public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin as fast, frictionless, electronic cash.

CoinGeek bComm Conference rounds up Bitcoin’s biggest minds for one-of-a-kind event

CoinGeek bComm Conference rounds up Bitcoin’s biggest minds for one-of-a-kind event

The eCommerce sector is relying heavily on traditional card payments such as Mastercard and VISA. VISA alone handles 150 million transactions every single day. But what if there is a more convenient and secure way of accepting payments?

At the inaugural CoinGeek.com Conference, which will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong on May 18, the biggest minds in Bitcoin will present a better way to accept payments and send money—or how to revolutionize transactions not just for today, but for the future.

What merchants really need is cryptocurrency, preferably Bitcoin Cash, which offers bigger blocks for more transactions, faster speed, and lower transaction fees. With Bitcoin Cash, merchants will pay far lower processing fees than on today’s payment card systems, and with instant payment confirmations on the blockchain, chargebacks will create significantly less financial exposure. To explain more the keys to moving eCommerce to Bitcoin Commerce (bCommerce), the CoinGeek.com conference will be focusing specifically on merchant adoption of the best micropayment solution with the lowest fees for both vendor and buyer.

Among the speakers and thought leaders who will be discussing the best ways to utilize blockchain and cryptocurrency technology for payments in a variety of sectors are Roger Ver, first major investor in Bitcoin startups and CEO of Bitcoin.com; Dr. Craig Wright, chief scientist of blockchain research and development firm nChain Group; Jerry Chan, chief Bitcoin officer of SBI Bits; Ryan X. Charles, co-founder and CEO of Yours.org; and Michael Wood, senior corporate counsel of Expedia.

Jimmy Nguyen, CEO of the nChain Group and also an influential figure in the Bitcoin world, will host the one-of-a-kind payments and CoinGeek.com Bitcoin commerce conference.
