BAF Strengthens Partner Roster by Introducing CSUN Blockchain Society

The Blockchain Acceleration Foundation introduced California State University, Northridge’s Blockchain Society to its network this Monday, bolstering its robust roster of university-affiliated student organization partners. CSUN Blockchain Society marks the seventh organization from Southern California and Mexico to officially partner with the Blockchain Acceleration Foundation (BAF).

“CSUN Blockchain Society is incredibly excited to join the BAF network,” said club president Adrian Covarrubias. “We look forward to contributing to the mass adoption of blockchain technology in Southern California and beyond.”

Among the main reasons the organization’s officers decided to partner with BAF was to gain access to credible blockchain speakers, receive tickets to regional conferences, and learn about job opportunities in the space.

The 40-person organization, which formed at the start of the 2018-2019 academic school year, has already hosted five events on campus encouraging blockchain education and awareness.

By hosting workshops and collaborating with fellow BAF organizations, club leaders said they hope to equip their members with the skills necessary to develop and deploy decentralized applications on the Ethereum blockchain by the end of the Spring 2019 semester.

“Partnering with CSUN Blockchain Society marks another important step as we continue to incorporate the most talented blockchain thinkers and students into our network,” said BAF President Cameron Dennis. “I am thrilled to work with Adrian and the rest of the organization’s members, and cannot wait to see the decentralized applications and other projects produced by the group.”

In addition to collaborating with the other BAF organizations, CSUN Blockchain Society club leaders said they also aim to work with the business and computer science schools on their campus to pool their collective knowledge and resources.
