The course is designed to be accessible to individuals with no prior blockchain experience. It features twenty comprehensive modules covering various topics, including blockchain fundamentals, smart contracts, Web3 development, decentralized applications, and more.

The program utilizes engaging learning materials such as video lectures, readings, and practical assessments. The team behind the course, comprised of BNB Chain community members, emphasizes their goal of fostering widespread Web3 adoption by educating individuals on building innovative applications on the blockchain.

Upon successful completion, participants receive a digital certificate recognizing their acquired knowledge and potentially opening doors to new opportunities in the rapidly expanding blockchain field.

Yi He, Co-Founder of Binance, emphasized the transformative potential of blockchain and Web3 technologies across various industries globally: “Blockchain and Web3 are setting a precedent in innovations across industries around the world. Education is critical to further development and adoption, and it provides new opportunities for individuals as these technologies shape our future and the global economy. We prioritize making education accessible, which is a core part of our user-focused principles and mission to increase financial accessibility and sustainable innovation as an industry leader supporting the growth of the larger ecosystem. With this specialized blockchain developer program, we hope to encourage and support more people to be part of building the future of these new technologies set to change our society and revolutionize industries.”

BNB Chain has proven its efficacy and growing popularity within the blockchain domain, as evidenced by opBNB’s distinction as the leading blockchain in terms of daily active users (DAU) and its processing of 71 million daily transactions at an incredibly low average cost. Furthermore, BNB Smart Chain (BSC) stands out as the premier L1 blockchain by DAU, with a total value locked surpassing $4 billion, reinforcing BNB Chain’s status as a premier community-driven blockchain ecosystem.

This partnership enriches Binance Academy’s global educational efforts, which include the production of free multimedia educational resources, the implementation of Learn & Earn campaigns, and the University Outreach Program. These initiatives collectively aim to integrate millions into the digital economy. Additionally, it complements BNB Chain’s suite of builder support measures, which features the Most Valuable Builder (MVB) program, various grants, and the Kickstart initiative.

The ‘BNB Chain Developer Specialization’ course is scheduled to become available from Friday, 22 March at 9 am UTC.
