“We believe that creators and builders shape our industry’s future. Therefore, empowering more creators and builders with knowledge is key. Binance, the industry leader, bears great responsibility for education and we will continue to push innovation through education.”

Binance has launched free online courses to bring millions of people into blockchain, cryptocurrency and web3, with the first course ‘Blockchain Fundamentals’ consisting of six modules for beginners.

The beginners’ course is designed for anyone interested in learning the basics from blockchain, cryptocurrency, decentralization, Web3 and the metaverse, to crypto trading and investing strategies.

Available in English on Binance Academy, ‘Blockchain Fundamentals’ will soon be followed by more advanced courses and more available languages.

The remaining five modules will be launched over the next few months. Learners who complete the course will be eligible to receive NFT certificates.

“Binance bears great responsibility for education”

He Yi, co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer at Binance, said: “Blockchain industry is still at its early stage. Many new concepts such as NFT and metaverse are coined. We believe that creators and builders shape our industry’s future. Therefore, empowering more creators and builders with knowledge is key. Binance, the industry leader, bears great responsibility for education and we will continue to push innovation through education.”

Binance Academy has plans to release courses for intermediate and advanced learners in the future and it will also launch professional certificate courses to help learners advance careers in the blockchain and Web3 space.

The educational content has been read or viewed by users hundreds of millions of times during the past year, according to the crypto specialist, with around five million users having participated in the Learn & Earn campaigns, while nearly 70 top schools including Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and the University of Oxford have participated in the University Outreach Program.
