The study aims at understanding the current scenario of blockchain education and whether it is meeting the increasing demand of blockchain professionals in the job market. In addition, it also provided a comparison between Ethereum and Hyperledger and analyzed the one best suited for better academic curriculum design. By drawing from various sources of data, including journals, articles, reports, the study provided critical insights into the various aspects of a blockchain education. It assesses the existing curriculum on the blockchain that includes courses and programs from various renowned universities and business schools. The study reveals that although the courses are comprehensive in developing theoretical knowledge of the learner, it does not provide the scope for practical skill development. This gap reflects the skill-shortage of blockchain professionals in the job market. To address this, the research also provides some guidelines for developing a comprehensive pedagogical structure using Hyperledger technology. The discussion also highlights the benefits associated with Hyperledger and the way it can foster active learning among the learners. Finally, the researcher also provided the practical and theoretical implications of the study and assessed its limitations directing on the future course of research.
