Proton partners with Northeastern University Blockchain Organization

We love to collaborate with blockchain organizations, especially those that grow the next generation of crypto innovation. That’s why we partnered with Northeastern University Blockchain Organization to offer a free bespoke NFT to every Northeastern graduate – our way of celebrating their accomplishments.

Northeastern University, located in Boston, Massachusetts, is ranked in the Top 50 universities in the United States and in the Top 10 for Entrepreneurship programs. With a passionate student body and a successful alumni base, Northeastern University is creating graduates that will go on to make their fields of study better in every way.

Northeastern Blockchain Organization is a student-led organization whose mission is to cultivate an open community of thought leaders, developers, and researchers to support the education and development of blockchain technologies. They work to foster an open community across undergraduate, graduate, alumni, and industry professionals to build a blockchain hub at Northeastern University.

By partnering with Northeastern Blockchain Organization, we’re hoping to encourage their graduates and introduce them to the Proton blockchain by giving them a specially-designed NFT. Our goal is that they will have fun during this experience and make the step to explore blockchain further. This partnership is special to our founder and CEO, Marshall Hayner, as he attended Northeastern University undergrad.

“My experience at Northeastern University shaped me as an entrepreneur and helped me think more deeply about solving complex problems in unique ways. I hope that Northeastern graduates seize the opportunity of blockchain and realize that their alma mater’s motto – Lux, Veritas, Virtus (Light, Truth, Courage) – is a guiding beacon for the journey ahead.” – Marshall Hayner
