StakingRewards Partnership for Verified Staking Providers
The staking industry’s growth calls for increased trust, transparency, and reliability. In response, the European Blockchain Association (EBA) is partnering with StakingRewards to strengthen the staking ecosystem within the European Union. The Verified Staking Provider (VSP) Initiative by StakingRewards helps investors make informed decisions by verifying providers’ adherence to risk management, longevity, and security measures. The EBA and StakingRewards collaboration will bring the VSP initiative to all EBA members, promoting industry standardization and offering benefits such as discounts and joint communication activities.
Certified Blockchain & DLT Manager
The “Certified Blockchain & DLT Manager” workshop in cooperation with TUM aims to convey knowledge to employees who want to acquire verified knowledge about blockchain technology. In two modules, the participants can obtain theoretical knowledge by experts in the field and encouraged to apply the knowledge in a case study.
Making the fast growing body of knowledge in blockchain applicable in a hyper-entrepreneurial, unregulated environment will not be possible without out-of-the-box thinking. That is why the European Blockchain Association is launching this call to join and create an EDU DAO which connects institutions teaching blockchain around Europe.
The heart of the EBA comprises the internal working groups. Here, like-minded organizations or communities have the chance to collaborate for their businesses in an independent and professional environment. We support working groups during their work and help to bring their matter of concern to the right people and institutions.
The EBA helps to establish EBAx (local EBA hubs) to strengthen the local blockchain community in Europe. By providing a comprehensive service and product portfolio, EBAx serve as meeting points and working bases for blockchain startups, organisations and communities. This leads to a strong and closely connected EBA community that works in a decentralized, yet efficient, manner.
