Success Story: Edwin Liava’a

“I have been an advocate for Blockchain for some time but with no certification. The Certified Blockchain Expert (CBE) gave me the opportunity to get certified. Without any certification, it was very difficult to convince clients of the viability of a Blockchain solution,” says Edwin Liava’a, who successfully completed his certification course from Blockchain Council.

Edwin believes that Certified Blockchain Expert (CBE) Certification that he acquired from Blockchain Council will solidify his credibility as a Blockchain solutions provider and developer.
