“As globalisation increases, so does the demand for technological solutions and talent to solve the world’s hardest financial problems, such as retail remittances,” says Ripple SVP of Business Operations, Eric van Miltenburg.
Ripple states the project is in response to the increasing demand for IT experts with knowledge of blockchain and cryptocurrency. It adds that last year alone over 4,500 related jobs were posted on LinkedIn, a 150% increase from 2016.
A few university research projects will involve Ripple’s technology and the cryptocurrency XRP, although this will not be a requirement.
