August 12th, 2021 - PoL (Proof-of-Learning) is a Japan online learning service specializing in cryptocurrency and blockchain. Techtec, the company behind PoL, has launched a basic Japanese curriculum about Algorand on its PoL platform.
Japan is leading the world in cryptocurrency adoption, regulation and even legalization. Algorand Foundation, with the vision to educate and advocate blockchain globally, aims to expand the number of local developers and projects building on Algorand in the Asia Pacific region, including Japan. The techtec curriculum will help support our broad goals at the Foundation of inclusion and participation.
The Algorand curriculum mainly consists of the following lessons (currently available in Japanese only):
Lesson 1: Blockchain Trilemma and PPoS
Lesson 2: Overview of Algorand, ALGO tokens, and ASA (Algorand Standard Assets)
Lesson 3: Overview of FutureFi, CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency), Co-Chain
Lesson 4: Algorand Wallet, PPoS（Pure Proof of Stake）
Lesson 5: Algorand's Decentralized Governance, Sustainable Blockchain Initiatives
The curriculum provides the Japanese users with a fun learning experience, with polished contents and comprehensible illustrations. Users can evaluate their learning outcome by participating in a simple test after each lesson.
Algorand has already been working with several Japanese companies so far. Besides the technology and ecosystem edge, Algorand’s regulatory-compliance nature makes it a great blockchain infrastructure for the Japanese companies to build on. Curvegrid, for example, is a blockchain technology company based in Tokyo, which will work to bring Curvegrid’s MultiBaas NFT Bridge to the Algorand ecosystem.
The past months have also witnessed a rapid growth of the Algorand Japanese community. Akio Sashima, our Japan community champion, and vvinyll, the Algorand ambassador who is also a PoL ambassador, have greatly contributed to the local community development and also supported the techtec partnership.
With the strong community force, we expect to inspire more participation into the Algorand ecosystem through the techtec curriculum and we’d like to welcome more blockchain enthusiasts, developers and projects in Japan to join us in this revolutionary journey.
