  1. Creation of a mini lectures series 

  2. Research roundtable with leading Universities and industry stakeholders 

  3. Crypto Valley Coffee Club Podcast 

  4. Increase the overall engagement within the association and in the WG Education

The Crypto Valley Association Working Group Education is committed to an open and inclusive planning process. Direct input and participation of our community and industry stakeholders is a critical component for the creation of a successful working group.”  - Tilmar stated.

Bora added “Furthermore, the working groups’ role is to gather community input, convey community needs and concerns, identify opportunities, provide project guidance, and review deliverables. Proposals and draft goals created by working groups will also be reviewed


In order to do so the CVA WGE partners with SEBAversity which is lead by Marcel Harmann, the educational arm of SEBA Bank - The Bank for the New Economy. Its mission is to demystify crypto and blockchain technology.

Together, both parties develop strategic education and kick off with a lectures series called CVA & SEBAversity Sunset Events.

The first hybrid event will kick-off the fall season on August 24th, 2020 with a lecture titled 'Proof-of-Stake Explained'. The events will take place in Zug, Switzerland and will also be virtually available for guests to attend. The event series aims to address topics that cover basic blockchain and crytographic knowledge but topics will also dive into more complex areas, hence providing valuable content for novices and experts alike.
