Binance Academy, the educational arm of cryptocurrency exchange, Binance launched free cryptocurrency education platform on Wednesday. The platform, as a part of the launch, released more than 450 blockchain and cryptocurrency articles and videos across 15 popular languages.
The languages included, English, Vietnamese, Polish, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Dutch, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Arabic, Korean, Russian and Turkish. According to a press release which was sent to Crypto-News India, since the Academy’s limited beta launch in August users have spent more than 14,000 hours on the platform; equivalent to 10,000 minutes of content consumed per day, and 583 days of educational material delivered overall.
Talking about this, Ted Lin, the Chief Growth Officer (CGO) at Binance said, ““Education is the integral pillar to proliferating crypto and blockchain usage. With adoption still at its infancy, the world needs a consolidated, easy-to-use, and reliable source of knowledge to advance the understanding of cryptocurrency and distributed ledger technologies. With Binance Academy, our goal is to provide an entirely neutral platform with quality, unbiased, educational information. Users can learn about everything to do with Blockchain, Security, and Economics, in addition to useful tutorials and guides, in their preferred languages.”
The platform touches on several burning topics such as “What is cryptocurrency?” ,“How does blockchain work?” to more complex topics on security, such as Cryptojacking and Ponzi & Pyramid Schemes- which are some of the Academy’s most popular forms of content.
When the Academy was launched, the exchange had released the news through its Medium account. At the time it had said, “Binance Academy is a brand new, open access learning hub from Binance. Our aim is to provide a one-stop-shop for blockchain and crypto learning resources, open to anyone and for the benefit of all. Current topics include Blockchain, Coins & Tokens, Binance, Security, and Trading, with more in the pipeline.”
The exchange, in the past few months, has really branched out in several directions and are admirably donning many hats at the same time.
