Weekly we propose videos from Blockchain Zoo youtube archive!
This week video is: Blockchain in Modern Educational Systems | Maarten de Borst | BBH#13
[Title of the video]
Martin de Borst is a blockchain expert and a co-founder of fintech startup Younder. On this episode of Blockchain Beyond Hype, we sat down with him to discuss a range of issues – from blockchain in the education space, to fintech and early adoption, to the act of educating oneself on a technology – like Blockchain – that is still emerging and being developed.
Martin, like many Blockchain experts, is largely self-taught. He read voraciously, watched countless videos, took online courses, and more, to teach himself the ins and outs of Blockchain and how it works – and can work – to solve problems in the business world and society more generally.
One of Martin’s most important lessons shared is the importance of practical knowledge. There are limits to classroom education – especially in fields that are just a few years old. There are no formal courses, few professors with proficiency, and just a general lack of institutional knowledge. The answer? Get out there and just do it.
