A new course dedicated to the EOSio blockchain at the University of Geneva has just been concluded. 

The lessons were held by the member of Europechain and CTO of EOS Amsterdam, known by the nickname “cc32d9“, as part of the Europechain Education Program. 

It was an advanced EOSio course in the context of the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) of the University of Geneva dedicated to blockchain and DLT. 

This blockchain dedicated CAS offers 12 official European credits (ECTS) and is led by Dr Jean-Marc Seigneur, who has published more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles in the field of decentralised trust. 

The CAS covers several DLTs, such as Ethereum, NEO, Hedera Hashgraph, Libra, Komodo, Hyperledger, Binance Chain and of course EOSio, since its main objective is precisely the design and prototyping of a DLT system that uses the main technical solutions and also covers business and legal aspects. 

The CTO of Europechain cc32d9 is a senior software architect who has been working in the software and telecommunications industry for over 20 years. He started working on EOSio in June 2018, shortly after the launch of the EOS mainnet. 

Europechain is a GDPR-compliant blockchain platform, powered by the EOSio protocol, operated and governed by experienced block producers registered in the European Union. It also brings together an ecosystem of technology providers, system integrators and business partners that enables global enterprises to deliver scalable, resilient and EU-compliant applications.

CAS Blockchain started in mid-September 2019 and will end in late February 2020. The final work will be completed by the end of March 2020 and will be presented in April 2020. 

It is divided into four modules, the second of which foresees the first developments with different blockchains, such as NEO, EOSio, Hyperledger, Libra, Hedera Hashgraph , Komodo, etc.

The teachers of this module are experts of the various blockchain development platforms, supervised by Dr Jean-Marc Seigneur. 

The objective of this second module is the design of a smart contract and a decentralised system by choosing the most suitable blockchain platform.
