Certified Multi-Protocol Blockchain Developer

Certified Multi-Protocol Blockchain Developer

Make yourself a most capable wide-ranging blockchain engineer. Blockchain developers are earning 10% to 40% more than their web2 equivalents.

The Certified Multi-Protocol Developer program provides existing developers with a depth of knowledge in Blockchain technology, architecture, security and protocol development capabilities on multiple private and public Blockchains. You will learn the programming language Solidity to develop Smart Contracts and distributed applications (DApps) on Ethereum. To become a Certified Multiple Protocol Developer you must illustrate the ability to develop Smart Contracts and DApps on at least two additional blockchains, such as Algorand, Hedera Hashgraph, EOS.IO, R3 Corda, Hyperledger Fabric, NEAR Protocol
