CUBO+, El Salvador’s university program to train Bitcoin and Lightning network developers, will welcome 54 students this Monday, April 24, when it begins activities.
This was reported on Twitter by the Bitcoin Office of El Salvador, which added that the preparatory phase of the program will run until the end of June and will offer students classes on economics and monetary history.
According to the announcement, during these first two months, the highlight will be an in-person lecture by Saifedean Ammous, author of the book The Bitcoin Standard.
Once the preparatory phase is completed, the program for the training of Bitcoin developers will introduce the students to a “more intense and face-to-face” stage, according to the government office.
It means that the group will then focus on acquiring everything from technical knowledge to developing the interpersonal skills needed to function as professionals in the Bitcoin industry.
So for two weeks they will be concentrated, “around the clock”, learning about coding in bootcamps or intensive software development programs.
The second phase is scheduled to begin in early July, under the tutelage of Bitcoin masters and the Lightning network. And then, in August, the mentoring part will begin, which will last until October.
The CUBO+ university program was announced on March 15, and as CryptoNews reported, it is the result of agreements reached between El Salvador and the Swiss city of Lugano, where there is widespread interest in boosting bitcoin adoption.
This first CUBO+ group was a selection of outstanding students from top universities in El Salvador, all under the age of 25.
As planned, the group will begin their training as Bitcoin developers at Don Bosco University in the Salvadoran town of Soyapango. Then, the intention is to expand the program in the coming years to include other universities and high schools throughout the Central American country.
