The Cardano Foundation and Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, are partnering to provide blockchain education and explore potential use cases in the energy sector.

As per the announcement made on Dec. 20, the foundation will lead blockchain education workshops for Petrobras’ 45,000 employees, with access to Cardano Academy content provided via Petrobras University. Petrobras is the largest corporation in Brazil and South America, with revenues of $124.7 billion in 2022.

The program will cover various blockchain applications, use cases, and interactive quizzes. To celebrate the program’s launch, the Cardano Foundation initiated two workshops in the metaverse, which focused on blockchain regulations in Brazil and worldwide.

“Our partnership with Petrobras—a Fortune 500 company and one of the largest public companies in the world—highlights both the appetite from enterprise for blockchain education as well as the growing reach of the Cardano Foundation and its mission. We are excited to partner with Petrobras and look forward to working with them, both to educate and to explore new use cases for blockchain technology,” Cardano Foundation CEO Frederik Gregaard said.

Upon completion of the blockchain training, participants will receive a certificate. The first 500 attendees will also receive unique non-fungible tokens (NFTs) created in collaboration with the Petrobras Education Board. These NFTs will dynamically change to reflect each participant’s progress and milestones throughout the training, serving as a digital tracker and showcasing their accomplishments.

The Cardano Foundation is dedicated to supporting and promoting the Cardano blockchain ecosystem. The Foundation plays a significant role in driving the platform’s development and adoption.

This partnership aligns with one of Cardano’s key five-year objectives, which was unveiled in 2021. At that time, the foundation announced its strategy to strengthen relationships with Fortune 500 companies to increase diversity in on-chain activity and expand blockchain use cases to a wider range of industries.
