What Others Have Been Saying:

Nadeem Nathoo

Executive Director,

The Knowledge Society

"Wow. Just wow. I cannot say enough about how valuable the Blockchain Learning Group experience was for our TKS students. Before the training, our students had a rudimentary understanding of blockchain technologies. Only a few weeks later they are building multiple decentralized applications and becoming young thought leaders in such a short period of time! Adam and the team were phenomenal facilitators. Not only were they incredibly knowledgeable, but they knew how to deliver the content to different audiences who might have had various levels of coding experience and blockchain understanding. How they were able to provide a personalized experience to a group of young people was very impressive.”

“The students left the training feeling incredibly capable and empowered after day 1. That is really a testament to how immersive and comprehensive this experience was. I highly recommend Blockchain Learning Group for any organizations that are looking to develop a further understanding of blockchain at any level, and to feel confident to actually start building solutions. These guys know their stuff! Thanks for everything and most certainly will be looking to engage them in the future!"


Joy Marrocco

IT Innovation Manager

AGL Energy

“We utilized the services of the Blockchain Learning Group to help accelerate our Blockchain strategies into action. Their approach to Blockchain education – combining developer training with business ideation and facilitating the actual Application Development - is by far the most immersive, responsive and action-oriented training program we have seen in the market. Their approach is underpinned by a deep understanding of how to efficiently leverage blockchain for business coupled with a seamless training regimen”

“Our developers who participated in the education program were amazed at how much practical knowledge they acquired in such a short period of time! This to me is a testament to the thoughtful approach of the education package as a whole, and speaks volumes to the Blockchain Learning Group’s acute understanding of what organizations such as ourselves truly need in such a training program.”

“Thank you to the Blockchain Learning Group for equipping AGL with a strong foundation in blockchain technology and providing us with the knowledge, tools and confidence to start making meaningful inroads with integrating this technology. We have gone from talking about Blockchain to actually developing and experimenting with different solutions, a significant achievement realized in a relatively short period of time. I would highly recommend the Blockchain Learning Group to any organization that is looking for a world-class education partner to jumpstart their own blockchain journeys!”

Melbourne Girls Grammar School

“Blockchain Learning Group provided an immersive learning experience for students and staff at Melbourne Girls Grammar. Their workshops illuminated for all participants the exciting, complex, and disruptive nature of blockchain technologies and its potential to democratize trust. Their skillful and patient coaching enabled students to become developers and integrators of blockchain technologies and imagine possible career pathways in tech. Our girls were able to demonstrate their new-found capabilities through success at the Smart Cities Hackathon in Melbourne where they developed DAPPs using the Ethereum blockchain and were one of the prize-winning groups.”

“Melbourne Girls Grammar thanks Blockchain Learning Group for bringing to life the workings and potential of blockchain technologies in such a clear and accessible manner, and for inspiring our girls to imagine career pathways in tech.”

“Thank you to Blockchain Learning Group for enabling Melbourne Girls Grammar students to become developers and integrators of blockchain technologies to create their own DAPPs using the Ethereum blockchain.”


And What the Students Said!

Rikard, Toronto

“I had been very interested in blockchain and all its potential, but the technical aspect seemed daunting- out of my scope of understanding. In two short days. I was taught to think differently and came out with a whole new mindset due to the immersive hands-on learning experience Blockchain Learning Group provided. Their instructors broke down the content well enough so that I could easily digest it, but at the same time, had it maintain a level of challenge and moved through the material very quickly in order to cover a lot in the limited time. The instructors were patient, eager to help, and I felt very comfortable in their learning environment, and as a result, I took away a lot from the experience. With the amount of practical knowledge and the resources I was provided with through Blockchain Learning Group, I am confident I will be able to create useful applications of the technology such as decentralized applications in the very near future. With well-planned out course material and excellent instructors, I would recommend Blockchain Learning Group to anyone looking to dive in head first into the space."

Nazra, Toronto

“The Blockchain Learning Group delivered a workshop that was incredibly informative, and well-organized. They provided a structure that included both an understanding of blockchain technology and decentralized applications, as well as an immersive method to building your own tokens and wallets. The instructors were extremely supportive throughout the entire process, and very eager to ensure that we received the most out of this opportunity. For both coders and non-coders, beginners and intermediates, this workshop is exceptionally beneficial to augment your understanding of DApps!

Talha, Toronto

“As students learning to develop on blockchain technology, and exploring Ethereum, the ecosystem seemed really intimidating as there was lack of good resources and guides on where to start. The Blockchain Learning Group provided easy and seamless explanations on many advanced topics, helping to break them down into more understandable concepts. We were able to leave the workshop with a solid understanding of blockchain fundamentals, and the ability to start developing our own projects and DAPPs.”

Stephanie, Toronto

“I began the two-day training session with a very limited and shallow understanding of the blockchain and how it worked. The Blockchain Learning Group completely dissected what I had considered to be a very intricate and overwhelming topic and made it understandable. Their presentations were clean and extremely well-organized and flowed well. They were very approachable; I didn’t feel intimidated to ask questions.”

“They transferred what they had taught us through the presentations onto real life situations, such as helping us build smart contracts. Their approach to blockchain education was very comprehendible and made a seemingly impossible topic intelligible.”
