Binance Coin Chain (BNB), a blockchain network created by cryptocurrency exchange Binance, has announced its partnership with Latin American-based education platform Platzi which will launch a Web3.0 development course for the region , as Cointelegraph reported.
According to Cointelegraph, the course aims to be accessible to 30,000 students. As mentioned by Gwendolyn Regina, Chief Investment Officer, BNB Chain, the aim of this course is to develop developer skills. “This will be the educational resource available in Spanish for Web2.0 developers to build on Web3.0 with BNB Chain,” she added. This development will seek to push for wider adoption of blockchain and Web3.0 education in the industry. Along with barriers to the industry of accessibility and education, unclear local government regulations also play a role. Cryptocurrency knowledge is lacking among individuals, and even among those who have purchased cryptocurrencies before. According to the Motley Fool survey, nearly 10% of respondents who own a cryptocurrency say they don’t understand how it works.
Based on information from Cointelegraph, cryptocurrency education in Latin America should have the ability to empower local people outside of traditional financial institutions. In El Salvador, the first country that reportedly made Bitcoin legal tender, efforts have been made to educate the general public about cryptocurrency. To show their participation in the BNB Channel course, participants of the BNB Channel Development Camp in Bogota, Colombia will be able to obtain a limited number of scholarships for the new online course. Latin America is working on a space to innovate and embrace cryptocurrency and Web3.0 developments.
Additionally, Cointelegraph noted that in recent developments, Binance and Mastercard have launched prepaid cryptocurrency cards in Argentina. “Latin America needs to balance the retail experience with the building potential. There is a community that knows crypto and its usefulness from daily experience,” Regina said.
