  • The training programme, in collaboration with the company GeeksHubs, has a duration of 12 weekends and is aimed at self-employed and business developers
  • Students will develop a technical implementation project as proof of concept for their company
  • Bankia will make available to all students Stockmind, the institution’s blockchain platform

Bankia has signed an agreement with the IT talent acquisition and training company, GeeksHubs, to train self-employed and business developers in blockchain.

In this high-performance programme, which lasts for 12 weekends, some of the best national developers are going to train students in this technology from the bottom up, teaching them how to create smart contracts, public and private networks and deploy such contracts in these.

During the 120 hours of the programme, with a more practical than theoretical approach, students will develop a project that is generally related to the sector of the companies for which they work.

Bankia and GeeksHubs have decided to launch boosting programmes for the blockchain business development departments with the aim of increasing their competitiveness and positioning Spain as a pioneer in the launch and use of the block chain.

This blockchain bootcamp, which was launched in Valencia last November as a pilot test, will start with Madrid this April and will be replicated in different Spanish cities. It has 15 open positions for self-employed and company developers that want to be trained by profiles such as Álex Puig, creator of Alastria, the largest Blockchain network that brings together more than 500 Spanish companies; and the Blockchain manager at Bankia, Alberto Gómez Toribio.

Bankia will make available to all students Stockmind, the institution’s blockchain platform, so that they can develop their projects for free, supervised at all times by Toribio to ensure the achieve quality projects for their companies.

Blockchain technology is created to provide people in the online world with digital ownership without the need for any intermediaries, thereby making the transactions they carry out become immutable, impossible to duplicate, delete or modify.
