Ripple and Algorand to Sponsor CM University Blockchain Summit


Written By:

The summit will be held on May 8 and 9, featuring brief talks from seasoned blockchain experts.

Ripple and the Algorand Foundation are the seed sponsors of the Carnegie Mellon University Secure Blockchain Summit set to hold in May 2023. The summit’s objective is to offer comprehensive insights into the prospects and evolution of blockchain technology.

Carnegie Mellon CyLab, CMU’s cybersecurity and privacy research center, recently disclosed the development through their official Twitter handle. They also revealed that additional sponsorship opportunities for entities interested in contributing to the program are still available.


Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), established in 1900 by Andrew Carnegie, is a private research university in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. CMU boasts a strong reputation in technology, business, the arts, and social sciences and is currently ranked in the top 25 universities in the United States.

In response to the increasing adoption of blockchain technology, CMU has integrated several blockchain courses into its curriculum. It is now organizing the Secure Blockchain Summit to promote understanding and knowledge of the nascent technology.

This year’s event will mark the first summit, with Ripple and Algorand serving as inaugural sponsors. Other sponsorship opportunities are still open. The summit is part of the Secure Blockchain Initiative, which CMU describes as “a multi-year, interdisciplinary research program.”

Scheduled for May 8 and 9, this year’s summit will present discussions by seasoned blockchain experts and CMU professors. Topics will cover crypto-economics, applied cryptography, and programming language. The summit is open to the public, and those interested are encouraged to complete the dedicated Google Form.

Ripple’s Contributions to Blockchain Initiatives

CMU’s increasing focus on blockchain technology reflects the rising global adoption of this technology, and Ripple has positioned itself as a primary financial supporter for institutions interested in exploring blockchain. Recall that CMU’s CyLab announced last April that Ripple is the inaugural sponsor of the Secure Blockchain Initiative.

Moreover, last month, Ripple was unveiled as the latest sponsor of the FinTech at Cornell program, an initiative introduced by the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business in New York. The technology firm has made these contributions despite its long-standing legal battle with the U.S. SEC.
