Cardano has joined forces with a multinational energy corporation based in Latin America.

The Cardano Foundation has revealed a new partnership with Petrobras, Brazil’s state oil company, that will focus on promoting Blockchain education and exploring use cases for such technology.

In a statement published on December 20, the organization unveiled its educational program that will be made available to Petrobras for the first time, with the aim of cultivating a broader understanding of blockchain technologies and promoting its adoption within the energy sector.

As part of the partnership, the foundation will lead educational workshops on Blockchain for Petrobras‘ more than 40,000 employees, based on Cardano Academy content and available through Petrobras University. Founded in 1953, Petrobras is the largest corporation in Brazil and South America, with revenues of USD $124.7 billion in 2022.

The classes will cover discussions on the potential of Blockchain and the exploration of various use cases and applications, and will allow participants to complete interactive questionnaires related to the technology.

Program covers metaverse and NFT 

To commemorate the launch of the program, the Cardano Foundation held two workshops in the metaverse, one of which looked at Blockchain regulations in Brazil and around the world.

Our partnership with Petrobras, a Fortune 500 company and one of the largest public companies in the world, highlights both the companies’ appetite for Blockchain education and the growing reach of the Cardano Foundation and its mission. We are excited to partner with Petrobras and look forward to working with them, both to educate and explore new use cases for Blockchain technology,” said Frederik Gregaard, CEO of the Cardano Foundation.

The program will also leverage non-fungible tokens (NFT) to measure participants’ progress. The first 500 training participants will receive unique NTFs, which will dynamically change to reflect each participant’s progress and milestones throughout the training, serving as a digital tracker and display of their individual achievements.

These NFTs will be created in collaboration with the Petrobras Education Council. All participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the blockchain training.

The Cardano Foundation expressed its enthusiasm for the alliance, adding that it hopes it marks the first of many new initiatives with Petrobras to promote education and drive the exploration of new Blockchain use cases in the energy sector.

This bold new partnership with the Cardano Foundation represents an important step forward in our mission to harness the power of Blockchain for new use cases within the energy sector. Education will play a key role in this and is therefore at the core of this new and innovative partnership,” stated Petrobras.

Cardano promotes Blockchain  education

The news comes shortly after the launch of Cardano Academy, a Cardano educational initiative that was launched alongside the launch of the Cardano Blockchain Certified Associate (CBCA) certificate course.

The academy is designed to enable participants to accelerate their journey in blockchain technology with comprehensive educational materials and gamified learning activities to retain knowledge.

The Cardano Foundation is dedicated to supporting and promoting the Cardano Blockchain ecosystem . The foundation plays a key role in driving the development and adoption of the platform.

The partnership with Petrobras aligns with one of Cardano’s key five-year goals, unveiled in 2021, to establish relationships with Fortune 500 companies, seeking to increase diversity in on-chain activity and expand Blockchain use cases to a broader range of industries, as Cointelegraph reminds.
