FINTERRA Technologies Sdn. Bhd. recently signed a MOA with Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU), for the setting up of the GALLACTIC Blockchain Centre Of Excellence.

As part of this collaboration, APU is setting up computing resources on campus together with FINTERRA, to provide access to the FINTERRA Blockchain platform (GALLACTIC) for its faculty and students to develop the skills required for building Decentralised Applications (DApp’s) for the next generation of digital users. Signed by Prof. Ron Edwards, Vice Chancellor of APU, and Hamid Rashid, Founder of FINTERRA, The GALLACTIC resources at APU will provide access to APU’s entire student community students to the GALLACTIC blockchain technology, the FINTERRA HD Wallet and the FINTERRA Exchange. This collaboration will drive the utilisation of GALLACTIC Blockchain at a grassroots level and develop future developers certified on the GALLACTIC Blockchain.

Among the areas that will be jointly undertaken by the two parties, will be the running of a GALLACTIC node at the COE and the use of GALLACTIC Blockchain programming in courseware for the building of DApp’s. To further grow competency in the development of blockchain technology, FINTERRA will be taking fresh graduates as interns to work on the GALLACTIC Blockchain with a view to offering full time employment to work with FINTERRA in continuing to build the next generation of blockchain technology.
