Banking giant ING Bank and luxury car and aerospace firm Rolls Royce are two of the household names joining an initiative to better promote blockchain education and research.

  • Blockchain accelerator MouseBelt said Monday both Rolls Royce and ING, as well as Belgium brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev and margin-first trading platform, have joined its Blockchain Education Alliance.
  • The alliance brings industry figures, both from within and outside of the digital asset space, together to train and support student developers interested in building their own projects.
  • Launched in October 2019, the initiative also tries to link corporate blockchain projects with researchers, students and new protocols.
  • Mastercard, Stellar and the incubator arms of Binance and Ripple are some of the other companies that are part of the Blockchain Education Alliance.
  • MouseBelt's head of education, Ashlie Meredith, said many students will not return to university campuses this year because of the pandemic, meaning jobs and internships were of the "utmost importance."
