Despite lingering skepticism about the future of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, the technology behind them is becoming a focus of university teaching and research.  Growing interest in blockchain by employers has presented them an opportunity to provide workers professional and continuing education. Peter McAliney, executive director for online and extended learning at Montclair State University’s center for continuing and professional education, recently spearheaded the launch of three professional blockchain certificates — one covering the basics, one for developers and one focusing on applications of blockchain in the financial sector.  The three certificate courses cost between $1,995 and $4,250 and are delivered in partnership with The Blockchain Academy — a company that offers corporate training and education in blockchain.
