    This program is also targeted at inspiring students, including people that have diverse backgrounds and experiences, to recruit them with the workforce of the future, based on blockchain, distributed computing, banking, and financial technology. In the report, the blockchain tech indicated that there is no plan to seek additional UBRI partners at the moment

    According to the report, Ripple is committing $50 million to this initiative. Also, the firm has the intention to commit additional financial and technical resources, coupled with the provision of continued access to IP and its staff as the program advances.

    This new partnership is part of the strategies the cross-border payment firm has initiated to make the understanding in blockchain, cryptocurrency, digital payment spread across the world.

    The academic partners according to Ripple are as follows:

    University of Oregon, University of Waterloo, Korea University, Princeton University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Nicosia, University of Luxembourg, University of Oxford, Kyoto University, University of Tokyo, University of Michigan, Morgan State University, among others.
