Binance expands the crypto scope
This is not the first initiative that Binance has been involved with. The platform has had several initiatives to widen crypto adoption in Africa. The exchange has invested in educating the community on Binance.
The reputable company launched the Binance Masterclass programs in Africa. The initiative was intended to teach Africans the fundamentals of digital assets. It also brought knowledge on spotting crypto frauds and avoiding such.
The crypto exchange platform has also been imparting knowledge to blockchain developers. These individuals are taught how to build blockchain solutions and develop a great ecosystem.
At the beginning of the year, the platform hosted a masterclass teaching 1000 blockchain developers in Africa on the market’s fundamentals. The lessons took eight weeks.
Binance wants to ensure people all over the globe understand the workings of the blockchain ecosystem. The company has doubled down on its efforts in providing crypto knowledge to about 170,000 Africans in quarter one of 2021. In quarter two of 2021, they have about 180,000 Africans. Binance wants to ensure that Africa achieves greater financial accessibility, focusing on cryptocurrency.
