As the cryptocurrency industry continues to expand, the need arises to educate the public about digital assets, their uses, advantages, and risks to support this growth, which is why the crypto trading platform Binance is now offering free courses on the increasingly popular technology.
Indeed, Binance has launched free online courses on blockchain, crypto, metaverse, and Web3, which are available to millions of people via the crypto exchange’s Binance Academy educational platform, according to the information shared with Finbold on November 17.
Learners will receive NFT certificates
Consisting of six modules, the beginner course will explain the basics of crypto, blockchain, decentralization, metaverse, crypto trading, and investing strategies. Its successful completion will be awarded a non-fungible token (NFT) certificate.
The opening course, called ‘Blockchain Fundamentals,’ is planned to be followed by the release of intermediate and advanced levels in the future, as well as professional certificates for learners aspiring toward careers in the blockchain and crypto space.
Initially, the modules will be taught in English, whereas additional languages will be introduced in the following weeks.
Commenting on the establishment of free crypto courses, the Binance co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer He Yi explained that:
“Blockchain industry is still at its early stage. Many new concepts, such as NFT and metaverse, are coined. We believe that creators and builders shape our industry’s future. Therefore, empowering more creators and builders with knowledge is key.”
Binance’s focus on the community
It is also worth noting that hundreds of millions of people viewed or read Binance Academy’s learning content, which has included cooperation from major names in the education sphere, such as Harvard, Oxford, and MIT.
The newest addition is the continuation of the crypto exchange’s efforts to dedicate greater attention and focus to the community as a whole above everything else, combined with Binance’s Recovery Fund for crypto projects facing liquidity crises.
This development arrives at a difficult time for the crypto sector, which is still struggling with the aftermath of the FTX collapse that has caused a domino effect across the market, knocking down the value of most digital assets, including Bitcoin (BTC).
