Polkadot Blockchain Academy Launches Fifth Cohort in Singapore

Polkadot Blockchain Academy (PBA) recently announced the launch of its fifth cohort in Singapore, with the goal of nurturing developer talent in the region. The program, led by 18 experienced instructors, offers 184 lecture hours covering topics such as Smart Contracts, Governance, Economics, and Polkadot-SDK.

Pauline Cohen Vorms, CEO and Co-Founder of Polkadot Blockchain Academy, highlighted the importance of Asia as a dynamic market for blockchain and Polkadot. She expressed excitement about educating and graduating a new wave of talent in the region.

In addition to the academy launch, Polkadot introduced Asynchronous Backing, an upgrade that optimizes block validation on the Relay Chain. This enhancement allows for faster block production and increased blockspace availability.

Furthermore, Polkadot partnered with Founder Institute to launch the first Web3 cohort in its Core Program. The collaboration aims to turn ideas into fundable startups and is set to be led by experts from the Polkadot community.

Despite these advancements, the price of Polkadot’s native cryptocurrency, DOT, remains steady at around $7. Analysts have mixed predictions for DOT’s future price movements, with some foreseeing a rally to $75-$100 in a bullish market, while others expect the price to take off if it stays above $6.90. Altcoin Sherpa believes DOT can experience a bull run but advises caution, as outperforming the market may be unlikely.
