Students across Bermuda are being invited to join a virtual blockchain event as part of Tech Education Day.

Blockchain on the Beach highlights a government programme to promote financial literacy and emerging technologies such as cryptocurrency, blockchain mining, art, and music.

According to a government press release, presentations, and activities, include a ‘Blockchain on the Beach’ conference which will launch Krypto for Kids Caribbean, featuring the launch of the SHEQONOMI Global Blockchain Scholars Programme.

The event will be live-streamed to schools in Barbados, Antigua, Barbuda, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, and other participating jurisdictions.

Jason Hayward, the Minister for Employment and Labour, said: “We are thrilled to partner with this global initiative to bring students, educators, and professionals into this important conversation that will prepare our next generation and enrich Bermuda’s digital workforce.”

Anu Bhardwaj, the founder of Krypto for Kids, added: “May this be the beginning of greater connectivity and collaboration from brilliant minds across oceans where we will have new leaders driving the new economic narrative of racial and economic justice.”

Bermuda's annual Tech Education Day, held at the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club on October 31, is affiliated with Blockchain on the Beach, which is being held from October 7 to 9.
