Forty-two lucky South Korean citizens are soon to undergo intensive training to become proficient in Blockchain technology, thereby setting them up for immediate employment within the country. According to Kinews, a South Korean news service, the training is part of a wider $100 billion development strategy to help boost South Koreaâs technology industry, specifically in the realm of distributed ledger technology. It is anticipated that this strategy will be rolled out over 10 years. To deliver the crash course, a number of key political authorities have been brought on board including the Korea Standards Association and the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Communication, as well as the Walton Blockchain Research Institute. In order to ensure that the most reliable and capable individuals were selected to start the training, applicants were screened with the help of intensive CV analysis, as well as interviews. The chosen applicants have now committed to attending classes for eight hours every day across a period of six months. Fortunately for the lucky participants, all costs for the training have been fully subsidized and, once the course is over, the most impressive students will be selected for immediate and lucrative employment.
