Schiener revealed that it took between 10 and 14 days for the Turkish cryptocurrency exchange Paribu and Upbit South Korean exchange to integrate the updated version of the IOTA DLT protocol.

While the IOTA co-founder did acknowledge FTX’s speed, he continued whether the crypto derivatives platform can integrate the new protocol even faster than the named cryptocurrency exchanges.

Five months earlier, FTX listed perpetual futures on MIOTA prices (IOTA-PERP).

The Foundation Will Enhance Blockchain Skills in Europe

IOTA Foundation announced recently that it will collaborate with CHAISE blockchain alongside INATBA, Fujitsu, and the European Digital SME Alliance among others to enhance blockchain innovation in Europe.

CHAISE, together with Erasmus + Programme of the European Union, will offer a four-year program to professionals including “blockchain innovation and skills development” with a “certified training program for blockchain and DLTs”.

The project will develop a 5-semester VET (qualification) with non-technical skills in addition to the skills specific to DLTs. Moreover, the curriculum will enhance different skills like problem-solving, teamwork, and entrepreneurial/customer-oriented mindset.

Lastly, CHAISE, alongside the other affiliated organizations will develop the first-ever “Blockchain Specialist” profile along with development in people’s skills in the blockchain.

Holger Köther, Director of Partnerships at the IOTA Foundation, said:

“We are delighted to join leading organizations from both the field of vocational education, and DLT industry leaders to jointly strengthen the leading role of the European Union in realizing the potential of distributed technologies.”
