DALLAS, Oct. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Blockchain technology is getting a higher education. As the demand grows for faster payments, settlements, and reconciliations, the blockchain will be playing an integral part of these fast-paced technological advancements. Dubbed as the OpenLedger-MVP Blockchain Innovation Laboratory, this project is made possible by MVP's partnership with OpenLedger, the world's first blockchain-powered conglomerate. MVP CEO Darren McVean states, "MVP Asia Pacific is proud to announce Holy Angel University (HAU) as the first University partner of the OpenLedger MVP Blockchain Innovation Laboratory. Our company has a strong history with HAU with around 75 of our current staff graduating from this exceptional institution." The blockchain lab aims to advance the progress of various industry-specific blockchain initiatives through the cooperation of universities all over the Philippines. Academia is vital to the success of this venture due to the progressive state of blockchain technology.

"The announcement today of the inclusion of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency to the 2018 HAU curriculum will enable MVP and OpenLedger to stay at the forefront of legal and technical advancements in these rapidly evolving industries," says OpenLedger CEO Ronny Boesing. MVP and OpenLedger see this curriculum addition as the next step towards cementing our companies position as the leaders in Blockchain technology. The past 12 months both OpenLedger and MVP experience tremendous success and growth from their partnership together. The scholarly work produced by MVP's partner universities will be used as the foundation of this rapidly-evolving emerging tech. Such research will eventually lead to the development of disruptive applications of blockchain technology across numerous industries. The OpenLedger MVP Blockchain Innovation Laboratory will benefit the next generation of lawyers, business analysts, IT professionals and electrical engineers. Founded in 1933, Holy Angel University is the largest private University in the Central Philippines with a student body of around 21,000. MVP Asia Pacific CEO, Darren McVean believes that "bridging the gap between academia and industry not only accelerates the development of this cutting-edge technology, but it also generates the blockchain proficient professionals that future innovations will inevitably necessitate."
