According to an official announcement, Chainalysis will give access to its software and training programs for integration into a course provided by the UA Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice. Students will learn how cryptocurrencies function in the modern financial system and criminal operations.
Chainalysis' Chief Revenue Officer, Jason Bonds, says the government sector is in need for talented people to ensure the "future of finance grows safely and securely."
During the course that will be offered this spring semester, students will learn main concepts of cryptocurrency transaction analysis and how to recognize the value proposition of cryptocurrencies.
Earlier in November, Chainalysis raised $100 million at over $1 billion valuation in a Series C round led by Accel, Benchmark, and Ribbit.
With the new funds, the company plans to expand its regulatory platform on a global level "for the surging cryptocurrency market." Chainalysis claims newer use cases around savings accounts, lending, and more are rapidly emerging on Ethereum and leveraging stablecoins.
