In an effort to train and bring more developers into the blockchain development ecosystem, Belfrics Kenya, through its new initiative called Belfrics Academy, has organized an educational event to help students from the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) get up to speed with distributed ledger technologies.

Belfrics Kenya intends to reach over 300 developers during the event and get them get started onto blockchain.

According to the official event page:

You’ll get a chance to experience a live demo of world’s first KYC integrated enterprise-grade blockchain and get access to tools needed to build decentralized applications or launch private blockchains on the platform.

Belfrics Kenya will soon be introducing its Belrium public-private blockchain and building a developer ecosystem will be crucial in ensuring adoption and enabling tools and Dapps to be developed on the Belrium blockchain.
