Qatar Blockchain BRIME launches training courses
A collective approach by players in Qatar’s ecosystem is needed
Qatar based Blockchain Research Institute Middle East, BRIME has launched its certified training courses on ‘Blockchain Fundamentals’, as part of its mission to spur the adoption of blockchain technology across various industries in Qatar.
Founder and Managing Partner of BRIME Aline Daoud stated, ” The BRIME institute which is the first Mideast branch of the global think tank Blockchain Research Institute (BRI) headquartered in Canada, will provide the training courses in both English and Arabic languages to corporations, governmental sectors, as well as individuals here.”
BRIME is currently in discussions with several entities in Qatar, including government and private sector institutions to provide the blockchain training courses to their employees, Daoud added.
“We hear about Qatari institutions investing on blockchain research. While many use cases on blockchain have already been implemented and adopted around the world, many other use cases are still under research. Many leaders in the financial sector acknowledge that they need their employees to be trained on this new technology. This will also spread awareness in the Qatari market, so we would know why moving to Web3 or the internet of value is something we will either lead or have to follow. Because it is happening whether we like it or not,” said Daoud.
She reiterated that a collective approach by players in Qatar’s ecosystem is needed, however, in order for blockchain technology to really disrupt the markets here.
She added that BRIME aims to be inclusive by launching the classes in both English and Arabic languages. The women-led tech institute will also have pre-scheduled sessions for women in a bid to encourage more women to be involved in blockchain technology in Qatar.
