Binance, the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider, is hosting a Campus Masterclass Series for Nigerian university students as it continues its mission to drive crypto adoption and enable greater financial accessibility for Africans.
The Binance Campus Masterclass Series is aimed at empowering students by exposing them to practical ways to gain financial freedom in a post pandemic world plagued by economic downturn and rising inflation. As blockchain technology continues to revolutionise economies, Binance is ensuring that students have access to fundamental resources to help them be successful in school and beyond.
For the first season of the series, the blockchain giant is hosting offline educational events in three universities: Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Federal University of Technology, Minna and Federal University of Lafia, Nasarawa.
It kicked off the series in FUTMinna on February 3, 2022, educating crypto enthusiasts about the opportunities within the crypto space. The event saw over 400 people in attendance, learning about the fundamentals of blockchain, the Binance ecosystem, trading fundamentals and how to keep their crypto safe and avoid scams.
The company continues to be at the forefront of crypto education, ensuring crypto enthusiasts are well equipped with all the right information. Its education series aimed at increasing crypto literacy in Africa, the Binance Masterclass, kicked off in January 2020, providing education ranging from crypto trading to careers in the blockchain. Since then, Binance has provided free crypto education to over 541,000 Africans.
On February 19, 2022, Binance will host another educational event at FWT Theatre in Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) led by Binance Campus Ambassadors.
“Blockchain education is at the heart of our focus in the global market. As a blockchain infrastructure provider, we are committed to ensuring that more and more people have access to the right information about the workings of the ecosystem.
“Africa is a very important market for Binance because we see the profound opportunity blockchain brings to the entire continent,” said Emmanuel Babalola, Director at Binance Africa.
