El Salvador Launches Bitcoin, Lightning Developer Educational Program
The study program called CUBO+ is a six month Bitcoin course aimed at producing adept Bitcoin and Lightning Network developers via the Salvadoran university system.
- According to the Office, the program, beginning in May, will consist of a relatively small group of students, under 25, narrowed down from some of the brightest students in El Salvador’s universities.
- They will be competing for the inaugural Plan B Fellowship, funded by Tether and Fulgur Ventures.
- Classes will range in topics from high-level technical development specific to Bitcoin, to distributed technologies such as Holepunch, Nostr and Web5.
- Students who complete the course will be presented with various options for continuing their Bitcoin journey, including the option to take on a full-time job at reputable Bitcoin companies.
