The initiative now supports 33 university partners to facilitate academic research, technical development, and innovation in blockchain technology, crypto assets, and digital payments.

Ripple has announced to add Kyoto University and the University of Tokyo as its new partners and expand the University Blockchain Research Initiative’s (UBRI) presence to Japan.

After this step, the initiative now supports 33 university partners to facilitate academic research, technical development, and innovation in blockchain technology, crypto assets, and digital payments.

Eric van Miltenburg, SVP of global operations at Ripple, said: “University partners will continue to increase positive awareness of the transformative impact that blockchain technology will have across various industries. As the industry matures, the academic community plays a pivotal role in paving the road for innovative companies and entrepreneurs leveraging blockchain technologies and digital assets.

He further added, “Expanding the UBRI network across the globe to a wide range of university partners will only continue to promote and accelerate the development of blockchain technology and use cases.”

This initiative’s main focus is to enhance the adoption of cryptocurrencies. The programme marked its presence in early 2018 and since then, it has included world’s leading technology institutions under its purview.
