SEBA Bank launches cryptocurrency and blockchain education scheme together with three universities

Swiss digital-first lender SEBA Bank has unveiled a new education platform SEBAversity together with the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and the University of Zurich.

“The need for training in the area of blockchain is enormous,” said Thomas Puschmann, director of the Swiss FinTech Innovation Lab. “SEBAversity, initiated by the first crypto-bank with a FINMA license, makes an important contribution here.”

Guido Bühler, CEO of SEBA Bank, added, ”The need for training in the areas of digital assets and cryptocurrencies is constantly increasing and with SEBAversity we are providing a dedicated platform for private individuals and companies with the aim of gaining knowledge in these areas. SEBAversity offers everyone access to practice-oriented expert knowledge combined with academic research, online and offline.”

SEBAversity is said to be aimed at private individuals as well as companies. The education and training of SEBAversity currently takes place in online webinars and later in so-called walk-ins in the SEBA X Space at the SEBA Bank headquarters in Zug.

SEBAversity is DEC certified.  ”We are pleased to have won a strong partner in SEBAversity and confirm the high quality of the courses in the area of blockchain & digital assets”, said Georges Grivas, president of the DLT Education Consortium (DEC).

The bank picked up $101m in investment in 2018.
