The collaboration with LPU focuses on providing students with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills in blockchain technology. Meanwhile, at Mapua University, blockchain is currently offered as an elective course, with plans to formalize it as a specialization in the future. These partnerships involve various activities, including structured internships, faculty training, curriculum review, hackathons, seminars, and other collaborative initiatives.

In 2023, The BLOKC partnered with the non-profit Solana Foundation to address the talent deficit in the Philippines’ blockchain industry through boot camps. The initiative aimed to leverage Solana’s potential to provide opportunities for skilled developers in the country. 

In addition to its advocacy for Solana, The BLOKC has also shown strong support for the Arbitrum blockchain.

In November of last year, the organization established a partnership with the Arbitrum Foundation to facilitate the spread of Arbitrum blockchain technology across the Philippines. This collaboration involves a variety of initiatives, including Developer Bootcamps, community gatherings, and hackathons, all designed to bolster the capabilities of developers and enterprises. The goal is to encourage the creation and use of decentralized applications (dApps), with a particular focus on cultivating a vibrant community.
