Yesterday came the announcement of the first scholarship, named after Satoshi Nakamoto, awarded to a student of human genomics at the University of Cambridge by the Bitcoin Association.

The award went to Robin Kohze who during his studies and using the blockchain created the HIVE protocol, which allows adding information to each node. The database created was stored using the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) blockchain.

In fact, although named after Satoshi Nakamoto, the scholarship is the work of the Bitcoin Association of Craig Wright, leader of BSV and someone who claims to be the creator of Bitcoin.

The scholarship was created with the aim of encouraging progress and development in the blockchain sector, where the integration and creation of tools that utilize this technology can be better than traditional models, making the system more efficient and secure.

The president of the Bitcoin Association, Jimmy Nguyen, was particularly pleased to present this award to a promising student:

“As part of our organization’s mission, we want to support the next generation of great Bitcoin thinkers and developers. Robin Kohze is an exceptionally talented mind who understands Bitcoin’s technical capabilities to transform data interactions, and we are thrilled to award him our first ever Satoshi Nakamoto Scholarship. We look forward to his HIVE project being realized to create real world value, and also appreciate his work to educate fellow Cambridge students about the Satoshi Vision for Bitcoin”.

The winner of this scholarship is also the founder of the Cambridge University Metanet Society, which takes its name from Craig Wright’s creature and aims to create a new era of the Internet that harnesses the power of blockchain, particularly that of Bitcoin Satoshi Vision.

Recently BSV has also tweaked its mining to achieve even lower fees using Taal.
