Justin Sun, the founder and CEO of TRON, a $3 billion-valued blockchain company, has launched a public campaign to build educational infrastructures across developing countries.

 Justin Sun launched his new campaign at the UNICEF Innovation Summit in Rome, Italy, on September 25. The event was attended by panelists, including UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake and a group of top CEOs from the tech industry.

The CEO said he would implement several educational projects worldwide and set an initial target of raising $50 million to be donated to developing nations. According to Sun, this fund will provide over 1 million children in Latin America, Africa, and Asia with access to education. Sun’s TRON Foundation will focus on providing free access to technology training programs with funding provided by the company. The CEO said he would collaborate with the governments and UNICEF to implement these initiatives. Throughout its history, over half of all UNICEF-supported schools were built by private donors, and public sector partners such as the World Bank and national governments, noted the CEO.

According to Justin Sun, modern education is not focused enough on technology, and content is not taught in an organized way. He hopes his universities will provide students with skills that will give them a head start in the global digital economy, which is taking off at an unprecedented pace.

An entrepreneur since he was a teenager, the TRON CEO has a vision of creating the first truly decentralized internet and its infrastructure. Sun also founded Peiwo, China’s most significant audio content community. He later sold the platform to tech giant Tencent for $30 million before starting TRON.

The TRON CEO founded the company in 2017 when the price of Bitcoin was starting to increase dramatically. The platform was posted on BitTorrent’s official website for free after the owner of the site asked Sun to develop a decentralized platform for content creators. This proved to be extremely successful, with over 100 million people using the application in less than a year.
