Cryptocurrency exchange platform Binance has announced a slew of programmes for Indian investors to enlighten them about cryptocurrency and blockchain.
"Binance is committed to building awareness around blockchain technology and cryptocurrency among primarily the student community," it said in a statement. It is also hosting a non-chargeable webinar —‘Crypto for All’— on 1 May where major finance influencers including Neha Nagar, Aditya Saini, and Kashif Raza will be teaching the basic concepts of Blockchain and crypto. Along with providing certificates issued over blockchain by Binance NFT to all attendees, select winners will receive grand giveaways in Bitcoin and Binance Coin (BNB).
Leon Foong, Head of APAC at Binance said, “At Binance, we believe in financial freedom through crypto adoption. India has one of the largest populations in the world with a median age of 28. This represents a huge opportunity for us to play our role in educating the future innovators and builders of India, especially students, and equip them with the relevant blockchain and crypto knowledge to build a path towards financial freedom.”
“Today’s generation also plays a significant role in imparting technology-related knowledge to their elders and play a crucial role as blockchain advocates. With Binance’s vast resource of academy content and our Learn and Earn program, we hope to create the right incentives for users to do more thorough research and make better informed investment decisions,” Foong further added.
Binance revealed that it also aims to create further courses to enable students to define their own career and entrepreneurial futures in the blockchain industry. These skills will be crucial in helping the future generation navigate the new world of Web3 and smart contracts.
As a follow up to the ‘Binance Campus BUIDLers Program’ that was launched in October 2021, the company has recently partnered with Inter Institutional Inclusive Innovation Centre (i4c) to initiate the ‘Blockchain for Good’ Ideathon, which provides a platform to students across Indian colleges.
