Thetryum launched on Saturday, 7, the TTY token, which will be the basis of the Brazilian startup’s educational platform aimed at qualifying people interested in working in areas related to blockchain technology and crypto assets.
A study by the Confederation of Companies for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Digital Technologies (Brascom) indicates that 420,000 jobs should be opened in the sector by 2024. In 2022 alone, the supply of vacancies increased by 400%.

But Marlon Botelho, founder of Thetryum, assesses that there is still a significant lack of potential candidates’ knowledge of technology, even basic aspects, such as programming languages: “It’s not something taught in college, and it’s not there, there are several things, but not about that.”
Botelho notes that job vacancies in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector are usually associated with “high salary, home office, flexibility and benefits in the profession,” but interested professionals end up having difficulty meeting minimum requirements for selection processes.
“The blockchain product is very different from reality. There are not many courses, but you have to learn about it,” he comments. Out of this absence, Thetryum was perfect, offering courses in the area, but focusing on people who already had a rudimentary knowledge of programming.
Botelho sums up the project as a “Web3 Programming Platform”. The idea is that the first test cycles will be launched in the second half of 2023, and from 2024 onwards, all material being prepared and validated will be released.
The focal point on the platform will be the TTY cryptocurrency. With a maximum of 150 million, it can be used to buy courses, get discounts, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) or simply for negotiations between interested buyers and sellers.
In addition to the apprenticeship aspect, the founder of Thetryum warns of the importance of learning more about the area and avoiding scams: Most investors chase projects to become a millionaire. The Brazilian who invests in cryptocurrency, 70%, believes that with 100 Brazilian reals he will become a millionaire, and this is where he loses money, because he keeps falling for a scam.
“The cryptocurrency market requires a lot of professionals, but they need to know the area. It’s a shift, because the traditional market is already breathing blockchain, a migration is already happening, but there is no manpower,” he notes.
