Right now around 3000 students in the HNG Internship 8, operated by Zuri, are signing up for Nucle wallets to begin using XCH for their internship. It is kicking off this month to help teach people around the world how to become experienced coders virtually around the world in a fun setting. They will assign real world tasks in a gamified atmosphere and give people real experience on a real project.
I have to say, from the little I have been able to gather this looks like a really exciting program and I find it fascinating that they will be using XCH for their program. I was told they are going to be using XCH to pay their international interns, they are located in Nigeria, as well as very small amounts as reward tokens for the games they run as part of the internship. They have 13 000 people in their slack and are right now in the process of signing their interns up for Nucle wallets based on the recommendation of Chia Network and others, including myself. This is pretty amazing and might be the first real mass use case involving XCH.
I had a brief conversation on keybase with one of the program managers, but I did not get nearly enough information and now its late in Nigeria, but I fully plan on getting more information tomorrow and following up. I will also be looking for any ways The Chia Plot can help out with their goals. Please check them out and if it looks like something that interests you it might be worth signing up for. Programs teaching people to code in innovate ways are always an A+ in my books.
