Bangalore, Mumbai, and Hyderabad – March 20, 2018 – MEDICI (formerly Let’s Talk Payments ranked #2 in the world in FinTech space) recently announced their collaboration with TalentSprint to create a world-class four-month Blockchain & FinTech certification training program in India. This program for working professionals of India has been launched in association with Ripple, PayPal, Paytm Payments Bank, ICICI Bank, and Indian Angel Network.
FinTech is a rapidly growing industry and specialists are in high demand but the industry is facing a talent supply shortage – both banks and FinTech companies are looking for right professionals that can propel innovation for them. In the area of Blockchain, skill shortage is even more acute. According to TechCrunch, Blockchain-related jobs are the second-fastest growing in today’s labor market; there are now 14 job openings for every one blockchain developer.
Joining forces, MEDICI and TalentSprint understand the need of the hour, which is creating a talent pool that will drive FinTech-at-scale and contribute to the growth of the new economy. Blockchain alone is now the second-most in-demand job skill in tech and when it comes to areas like FinTech, education is really behind the industry. With the help of MEDICI’s knowledge base and tools as well as TalentSprint’s great faculty and experience, this course brings world-class training program to India.
The FinTech market is booming in India and is now being counted in the some of the hottest markets in the world – India has seen the most number of new FinTech startups come up in the last two years.
Today, Blockchain is being used in several use-cases such as identity, smart contracts, asset management, and even remittances. Last year, freelance talent marketplace Upwork saw blockchain rise to the fastest-growing skill out of more than 5,000 skills in terms of freelancer billings – a year-over-year increase of more than 35,000%.
This is not just any other Blockchain and FinTech course; it is a hybrid online/live course that will enable professionals to create cryptocurrencies, build smart contracts, create mobile payment apps, implement digital wallets, launch digital lending platforms, and more.
MEDICI has a vast and in-depth understanding of Blockchain curated through its industry analysis and market engagement initiatives. MEDICI has written some of the early papers/posts on Blockchain use cases and has covered 440+ Blockchain companies on its platform with the comprehensive view of their business models and use cases.
The program is aimed at professionals who have a background in technology/banking/financial services. Through the program, professionals will be able to access the following two modules:
