Established in Bataan, Block Dojo Philippines will provide training, education, upskilling and cross-skilling to homegrown talents and produce a pioneering generation of blockchain companies and professionals in the Philippines.

“Our investment and commitment to supporting Filipino start-ups and entrepreneurs, aligns with our MOU signed last year with the Provincial Government of Bataan,” said Stefan Matthews, nChain group chairman.
