The DCC, which has members from leading professionals from fields, including Finance, Attorneys, and Accountants, says that this partnership will provide education and training opportunities to Chamber members as part of its membership benefits. The Chamber of Digital Commerce is the Washington, D.C.-based trade association representing the digital asset and digital currency industry.
The organization held the first ever Bitcoin Education Day the last year on August 29, 2014, at Capitol Hill. More than 32 Bitcoin professionals from 12 states briefed over 70 Congressional legislative aides and introduced themselves to the remaining 365 offices at the occasion. Thus, it appears that the organization has not just been promising its support for digital currencies but acting upon them as well.
The latest partnership according to the Chamber of Digital Commerce will help them establish a pro-growth environment that is appropriate for innovation, jobs, and investment. The pro-growth environment according to them can be achieved through education, advocacy, and working closely with policymakers, regulatory agencies, and industry. Interestingly, as the DCC is the leading education center for professionals in the digital currency economy and provides certificate-level courses, generating an environment that fosters innovation, jobs and investments is going to be easy for the Chamber.
Similarly, as the Digital Currency Council also aims to support the development of best-in-class professional practices through training, certification and networking with peers and clients as well as provides certification that is industry recognized for competence, a lot of members are going to benefit from the new partnership.
Talking about the partnership, Perianne Boring, Founder and President of the Chamber of Digital Commerce, says the strategic partnership with the DCC, the leader in digital currency education and training adds an additional level of professionalism, and credibility to their members and help them work with the regulatory and policy community. Similar views were shared by David Berger, CEO of the Digital Currency Council who said that through their membership in the Chamber, these leading firms and individuals have shown a strong commitment to the growth and professionalization of the digital asset industry.
The DCC believes that the growth of the digital currency economy requires its maturation and professional conduct, whether online or offline. The organization enables its members build, measure, learn, and iterate in pursuit of their business goals. David Berger admitted that under the latest partnership with the Chamber, they are aiming to support their commitment for professionalism in the digital asset industry with access to their coursework, certification program, and membership of over 1,500 professionals across the globe.
