The Swiss bank SEBA has launched an educational platform together with three universities, aiming to teach students about cryptocurrencies, digital assets and blockchain technology.
The non-profit platform SEBAversity has been launched in collaboration with the University of Zurich, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center.
SEBA Bank, which is based in Zug, is specialised in digital assets and will provide practical knowledge to the solution, while the universities provide the scientific foundation and practical research. The offering is aimed at private individuals, as well as companies, including those that do not already have a good knowledge of the industry.
The course will take place in online webinars and later in so-called “walk-ins” at the SEBA Bank headquarters in Zug.
“The need for training in the areas of digital assets and cryptocurrencies is constantly increasing and with SEBAversity we are providing a dedicated platform for private individuals and companies with the aim of gaining knowledge in these areas. SEBAversity offers everyone access to practice-oriented expert knowledge combined with academic research, online and offline,” Guido Bühler, CEO of SEBA Bank, said.
The platform has received a certification from the DLT Education Consortium (DEC), which includes universities specialised in blockchain, and offers the Certified Digital Assets Analyst (CDDA).
“SEBA is one of the first fully licensed banks worldwide to work with digital assets. This motivates us to join SEBAversity”, Philipp Sandner, Head of the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center said.
Tim Weingärtner, Professor of Computer Science at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, commented: “The cooperation with SEBAversity enables us to connect the know-how of a crypto-bank with the academic world”
Thomas Puschmann, Director of the Swiss FinTech Innovation Lab at The University of Zurich, added: “The need for training in the area of blockchain is enormous. SEBAversity, initiated by the first crypto-bank with a FINMA license, makes an important contribution here.”
