Blockchain Workspace Launches Blockchain Education Company in Amsterdam, Netherlands


Share with:

The Blockchain technology industry is a tremendously interesting and fast developing industry – fast paced, it provides many opportunities and will change the way we interact as a society and has the potential to revolutionise a number of industries such as finance, health, energy, government, music, art, video and much more.

Because the technology is new, many companies are at a loss to get to grips with it. The information that is on offer is extremely technical and it is difficult to get a grip on the possibilities and impossibilities it offers.

How to avoid wasting money or, even worse, being ridiculed for starting up projects that are doomed to fail? Knowledge!

Blockchain Workspace is a company with the vision that Blockchain education is necessary for the industry to flourish.

“In the last three years, I’ve noticed a distinct gap in knowledge about Blockchain tech between developers and other stakeholders. I have also seen multiple companies investing in things they had no ability to judge on merits due to this gap in knowledge. I have a passion for teaching and I enjoy the challenge of making Blockchain understandable to non technical people. It’s not as hard as it seems, but you do need to have an ability to translate the concepts into terms understandable to non developers. We see this as our unique contribution to making sure Blockchain technology will flourish in the decades to come,” said partner Bas Wisselink.


Blockchain Workspace is aimed at educating people with a less technical background who want a basic grip on what Blockchain technology can and will mean for them. Blockchain Workspace also offers a program for trainers who want to specialise in Blockchain technology.

Bas Wisselink and Henk van Cann have a track record on a no-nonsense approach to development. With Blockchain Workspace, they are adding grounded and continuous education to the Blockchain industry.

Blockchain Workspace offers a range of courses for companies and employees and they are  partners with Blockchain Lab for Public Good, which acts as a collaborative workspace for budding Blockchain entrepreneurs.
