The B4B project, which will train mostly local professionals on the use of Bitcoin and blockchain in their businesses, after just becoming official, almost went sold out


Officially launched on March 10th, with 30 slots available; sold out just six days later and relaunched with a further 30 seats that are already selling out: we are talking about another important educative component among those envisaged by Lugano’s ₿ Plan, i.e. the B4B – Blockchain for Business – or Spring School, aimed at those who, thereabout Lugano, deal with economics, finance and law.
