In the Industrial Revolution 4.0, Blockchain is considered a “key” technology for digital transformation and building future information technology platform. Blockchain is a technology that stores and transmits information by interconnecting blocks together and expanding them over time. With the ability to share data information transparently in real time and to save storage space with high security, Blockchain technology is one of the trends of technological breakthroughs, which can be widely applied in many sectors and fields.

The workshop is a part of a collaborative and support project that IBL is implementing with universities across the country within the framework of the Blockchain Country Vietnam project, which aims to strengthen training activities on Blockchain and enhance quality of human resources in this potential field.

The second session "Blockchain and Smart Cities" focused on building and deploying a smart urban model on the basis of modern Blockchain technology, including the support system on  verifying certificates, the decentralized support system in active teaching. The proposed solutions are the premise to develop a platform that allows citizens to live and participate in learning in the smart cities’ training centers.

The workshop is a great  opportunity for experts, researchers, educational administrators and students in the Mekong Delta to exchange knowledge and learn more about Blockchain technology; as well as the opportunities and challenges in applying Blockchain to the development of smart and sustainable urban models, particularly in education and training.
