Certified Blockchain Expert

I saw this pop up on someones feed today. An organization called the Blockchain Council has created a cert called the Certified Blockchain Expert. It looks like it costs $100 for "2-3 hours of training" and a 100 question test (60% needed (2 retakes)). I'm not sure how someone can become an expert at anything in 2-3 hours.

    They even got 8 different certifications, including cryptocurrency trading or smart contracts. And a membership which gives you 30% off, for a whopping $199. Now that's some idea of riding the cryptocurrency wave icon_lol.gif

    It was only a matter of time lol. As is usually the case, expect someone to step into the cert fray and try to cash in on the latest buzzword/trend.

    3 hours of training, 60% passing score, two tries?

    They should get mystical about it and not give you your actual score, just a pass or fail status. Straight Kentucky-Fried legitimacy.
