Binance Academy to Integrate Blockchain Education into Over 200 Universities’ Curricular
The Blockchain Engineering program is a 20-week course. It covers a range of topics such as Web 3.0, distributed ledger technology, Solidity development, and Chain fundamentals.
Binance Academy, the educational arm of Binance, is going the extra mile to ensure that Web 3.0 and blockchain education reaches every part of the world. However, achieving this has been quite tasking despite the immense efforts of Binance to bring it into reality.
Nonetheless, in a fast-evolving world of digital finance, the company has highlighted blockchain education as a way to foster financial innovation sustainably. First for its community, and then for the broader crypto ecosystem.
Binance Academy Collaborates with Blockchain Center on Web3/Blockchain Education
In a recent move in that regard, Binance Academy recently tapped Blockchain Center, an independent non-profit organization. Per an official announcement, the collaboration is aimed at formally integrating blockchain education into the global school curriculum. Over 200 universities spread across more than 50 countries will begin to offer blockchain-based courses.
In forward-thinking, the initiative plans to have educated at least one million students in blockchain engineering and compliance by 2026.
As of publication, the Blockchain Engineering program is a 20-week course. It covers a range of topics such as Web 3.0, distributed ledger technology, Solidity development, and Chain fundamentals. Then there is also a 13-week Compliance program that explores the crosspoints of blockchain and regulations.
For Binance, helping users to gain a robust knowledge of crypto is a two-edged sword. That is, while users are updating themselves with information on trading risks and various other insights into the crypto industry, the crypto industry will also experience massive growth as adoption skyrockets as well.
Educational Efforts So Far
Since launching in 2018, Binance Academy has been involved in several educational programs. However, it was initially designed as a learning hub for any kind of user regardless of their level of baseline knowledge.
The platform offers free learning materials in various languages, with articles ranging from beginner to intermediate. While the beginner level is focused on guidance for crypto trading, the intermediate explores deeper topics like cryptocurrency, blockchain, and dApps.
Binance Academy did not stop there. It says it has over 500 educational articles and glossary entries, in English alone, to its name. According to the learning hub, these articles have served more than 27 million people around the world who have been interested in topics like crypto security, tokenomics, and technical analysis.
Furthermore, Binance Academy currently runs another program in the form of blockchain-based workshops. It carries these out at top educational institutions worldwide and has delivered to more than 19,000 students at over 200 universities.
Overall, the efforts of Binance further reinforce its commitment to driving innovation and onboarding billions of people to Web 3.0. Interestingly, it means that education may just be at the center of it all.
