[IMPACT] Please describe your proposed solution.


This is the main course of the Fimi community, we have started building the community from bringing the right knowledge and right mindset to the community of crypto investors in Vietnam, helping them to qualify for Know and avoid scam blockchain projects.

Since the 5 years ago, more than 1000 trainees have attended this course. Some of them are trainees who are living outside from Vietnam participated in the online course. You can see trainees testimonials about the course

For now, the course is still being held regularly every 2 months, and trainees will pay a tuition fee of 10,000,000 VND (~400 USD). But we want to make this course a social property in the same way that the company IOG has done with all of their intellectual property.

If the community votes on this proposal, thousands of trainees in Vietnam will be able to learn it for free. The Cardano community will have more talented and honest developers.

The course will be held on 2 weekend days. The course locations are large classrooms in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

<u>The contents of the course</u>:

  • Background knowledge for new comers to understand about Blockchain technology in the right way.

  • In-depth research on consensus mechanisms and ledger structures to evaluate and choose the right blockchains.

  • Analyze the evolution process, assess the outstanding issues and forecast the next development trend of the blockchain field in the future.

  • Learn about the historical and inevitable role of blockchain in Industry 4.0.

  • Analyze the practical application of blockchain to life.

  • Explore the pioneering areas that will apply blockchain in the near future.

  • Assess potential breakthrough investment opportunities with industries that have opportunities to apply blockchain technology.

  • About Cardano blockchain

  • Advantages of Cardano blockchain

  • How to get a job in Cardano ecosystem

    [IMPACT] Please describe how your proposed solution will address the Challenge that you have submitted it in.

For developers

  1. Helping new developers with the basics of the Cardano blockchain.
  2. Make them aware of career opportunities in the blockchain field.

For this challenge

  1. Attract more developers from Vietnamese community to participate in Catalyst?
  2. This blockchain course will help Cardano be more widely advertised to many potential developers in Vietnam

For Cardano ecosystem

  1. This blockchain course will help Cardano be more widely advertised to many potential developers in Vietnam and their friends and relatives.

[IMPACT] What are the main risks that could prevent you from delivering the project successfully and please explain how you will mitigate each risk?

Potential risk: The outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic will prevent the course from being held on schedule.

Our solution: Organize those courses online, through the Zoom platform. This may reduce the interaction between students and the teacher, but it still ensures a sufficient amount of knowledge needed to help students learn most of the knowledge of the course. After that, when the pandemic is under control, all students in the online course will be re-learned in subsequent training courses to ensure that students can fully absorb the knowledge of the course.

[FEASIBILITY] Please provide a detailed plan, including timeline and key milestones for delivering your proposal.

In this proposal, we propose an operating budget to organize 4 courses within 6 months after the proposal is approved.

  • The 3rd course: To be held in Hanoi, expected in January or February 2023
  • The 4th course: To be held in Ho Chi Minh City, expected in February or March 2023
