SBI Ripple Asia Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Yoshitaka Kitao) and its subsidiary to expand its next-generation payment platform in the Asian region President: Takashi Okita) announced today that the "Beyond Blockchain Technical Program" ("BBC Program") was launched today.

Background and aims of establishing the BBC program 
Various digital currency mechanisms have been put to practical use in Europe, the US and Asian countries, and many of the foundations are supported by "block chain related technology". Although domestic financial institutions and FinTech enterprises are getting excited about the momentum to commercialize block chains, distributed ledger technology (DLT) and virtual currencies, etc., there are still few cases of that, and the systematic It is in an environment where learning is difficult. Therefore, from the viewpoint of international competitiveness, the shortage of engineers toward practical use can be said to be a common problem in domestic financial and IT industries.

The BBC program is a program to cooperate with program participants, aiming to train engineers on cutting-edge technologies such as block chain / distribution register technology (DLT) and virtual currency. In the BBC program, we will provide systematic knowledge of block chain related technology through technical workshops and study meetings by experts.

In the future, we will provide a practical development environment for block chain related technology and will conduct joint verification experiment etc. Also, we will continue to work with more companies by accepting applications for participation continuously.
