With Cardano Foundation's support, the IOHK China team was invited to the Intl. #Fintech Innovation Conference (#IFIC) in Sanya, to introduce #Cardano & #IOHK to the #Chinese #crypto space and listen to the latest developments in China.

China's #blockchain industry is set to exceed US$116m (Rmb800m) amid a current shortage of more than 500k employees. More than 600 blockchain enterprises will be established in the world’s most populous country this year alone, according to #IFIC speakers.

As such, #IOHK, the Cardano Foundation’s ecosystem partner, is in discussions with Chinese universities to design and implement a #Haskell language training course. Adding to recent courses taking place in Barbados, Ethiopia and Greece, and more in the planning.
