Product Hunt Daily Digest

Attend the decentralized school

Today’s Daily Digest was crafted by Product Hunt and sponsored by our friends at Blockstack.

Blockstack, the decentralized computing network and secure app ecosystem, announced a new partnership with Lambda School this week. If you’re not familiar with it, Lambda School takes a unique approach to education by offering coding and software training (in virtual classrooms), which cost nothing until a student is hired. 🎓

"At Lambda School, our goal is to remove as many barriers to high-paying careers as we can for our students. We design our curriculum based on the exact criteria hiring managers look for, ensuring graduates have mastered all of the practical skills they need to succeed.” - Austen Allred, co-founder and CEO of Lambda School.

The idea is that building decentralized app will be a practical skill to have in the future (that also pays today). Students enrolled in the program will learn how to code Blockstack apps. Students will also be able to earn money through Blockstack’s App Mining program, which as we wrote about last month, is increasing its monthly payout to $1 million. 💸

As part of the partnership, Blockstack is committed to ensure all student-built applications undergo quality control testing, including app reviews, user testing and a guided launch of their apps on Product Hunt.
