Arkansas University Is Going To Open Blockchain Educational Center

The new center, which the university’s board of trustees approved in May, will become part of Sam M. Walton’s business college (Information Systems Department) and will be designed to educate students about “the value of Blockchain technology in the future of business and digital security.” This should also be the place where academic scientists, government officials and industry members can collaborate in blockchain projects that create new jobs and strengthen the business industry of Arkansas.
