The institute is an unregistered non-profit semi-government entity that provides training in the financial sector.
The establishment of the Blockchain Academy purportedly marks the country’s first blockchain professional qualification program offering. The training program is designed to prepare participants to earn the international qualification of Certified Blockchain Professional CBP and was developed by the BIBF and Dubai-based training firm MyLearning Key.
