BeefLedger congratulates Smart Trade Networks + Casugol Education Collaboration Agreement

BeefLedger congratulates its technology partner Smart Trade Networks and Asia-based technical education services provider Casugol on their recent agreement to develop and deliver blockchain education and training across Asia.

There is a significant need to develop and make available blockchain related education and training suitable for individuals and organisations, which draws on a combination of practical industry experience and expertise, and globally leading research and development in this emerging technological sphere.

According to Smart Trade Network director Charles Morris, “Smart Trade Networks is looking forward to collaborating with Casugol to create and deliver world class, real-world relevant, courses on blockchain technologies. Together, we bring decades of software, systems, education and commercial experience to the table, to bridge the gap between theory and practice. We will create and deliver blockchain education and training for the real world.”

BeefLedger is excited to support this initiative, and bring real-life design and implementation experience to the table. BeefLedger hopes that this alliance will provide opportunities to further raise the company’s profile in the marketplace, and to contribute to the development of a deep skills pool across the region.

“There’s no doubt that there’s a need for greater skills and capacity development in the blockchain arena. Our experience in BeefLedger and also in Smart Trade Networks has shown that a multi-disciplinary approach is central to getting the most out of this innovative technology,” said Warwick Powell, Chairman of BeefLedger and Smart Trade Networks.

“This strategic partnership with Smart Trade Networks is a defining one and Casugol is looking forward to engaging with the expert team at Smart Trade Networks to launch a series of state-of-the art blockchain education programs based on the latest trend and best practices on blockchain technology.

“This provides participants / learners a unique learning experience, providing them with the competitive advantage required to thrive in this fast changing digital economy. This is a partnership in line with our founding principle to make education, knowledge and resources accessible to everyone,” said Dwayne Ong CEO of Casugol.

Casugol and Smart Trade Network have aligned to bring their unique resources, experiences and capabilities together to create new value growth opportunities for each party and for participating stakeholders and students.
