El Salvador’s Bitcoin Office has announced the launch of a new educational program called “CUBO+” that aims to produce elite-level Bitcoin and Lightning developers through the Salvadoran university system.
The six-month program will begin in May and will be led and taught by some of the brightest minds in Bitcoin. The first group of students under 25 will be selected from some of the brightest students in El Salvador’s universities and compete for the inaugural Plan B Fellowship, funded by Tether and Fulgur Ventures. The program will cover high-level technical development specific to Bitcoin and distributed technologies such as Holepunch, Nostr, and Web5.
The program will consist of two months of online classes, followed by a two-week in-person boot camp located in San Salvador. The remaining months will include online mentorship with top Bitcoin experts. Private funding is responsible for the program, and students who qualify for the Plan B Fellowship will receive a stipend to cover the course costs.
Students who complete the program will be presented with various options for continuing their Bitcoin journey, including full-time job opportunities at reputable Bitcoin companies, entrepreneurial opportunities, and continuing education.
The CUBO+ program aims to become a framework for high-level Bitcoin education that other nations can utilize as an open-source standard. The program was announced due to the agreement between El Salvador and Lugano, Switzerland, for the world’s first Bitcoin Embassy in the Swiss city.
The program hopes to inspire future generations in building El Salvador’s future by drawing inspiration from the Cubo project that President Nayib Bukele started in his Mayor position in San Salvador, where buildings served as libraries and community centers for furthering education.
