Dallas College News: Latest Updates Revealed


Dallas College and the Texas Blockchain Council (TBC) have announced a partnership that advances technology education for the digital economy. The collaboration emphasizes hands-on learning and will allow participating students to earn a new Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Advanced Technical Certificate through Dallas College.

According to Dallas College Chancellor Justin Lonon, “Our collaboration with the Texas Blockchain Council positions Dallas College as a leader in technology education for the digital economy. Dallas College is committed to providing our students with the most relevant and valuable educational experiences. This partnership with the TBC allows us to stay on the forefront of technological innovation and prepare our students for the digital economy.”

The partnership comes at a time when Texas is becoming a leader in bitcoin mining and Dallas College will host a bitcoin miner installation at Richland Campus. Steve Kinard, director of bitcoin mining for the Texas Blockchain Council, said, “Our collaboration with Dallas College isn’t just about installing a bitcoin miner; it’s about creating an environment where students can immerse themselves in cutting-edge technology.”

The installation of a bitcoin miner allows students to gain firsthand experience with the technology that powers the world’s first and largest cryptocurrency. Key technical supporters include Luxor Technologies and Bentaus Mining. The Texas Blockchain Council donated the hardware at no cost to Dallas College, and 100% of the bitcoin proceeds from the operation will go to Dallas College Foundation to support its mission.

The Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Advanced Technical Certificate is available at all seven Dallas College campuses. For more information, visit the Blockchain Certificate webpage. Media Contact: Debra Dennis; DDennis@DallasCollege.edu.
