According to reports, over 100,000 African youths have taken part in Binanceâ€™s crypto and blockchain education barely a year after the learning program was launched. Dubbed the Binance Masterclass, the education initiative is aimed at equipping newcomers with basic knowledge about cryptocurrencies.
Also, as one report explains, the initiative seeks to stop young African traders from becoming victims of cryptocurrency scam tactics. The report said:
In addition, the report also quotes Emmanuel Babalola, a director at Binance Africa, explaining how the learning course is being used to prepare African youths â€œfor career opportunities in the [crypto] market.â€
Launched in the Nigerian city of Benin in late January 2020, the six-hour intensive seminar â€œincluded a comprehensive crash course into understanding bitcoin, blockchain and trading.â€
However, for the latest Binance classes, students went through a training course that ran for eight weeks between January and March 2021. This series would be â€œconcluded with a demo show where 10 groups, comprising five developers each, showcased their applications.â€
