As the global pandemic spread and many people lost their jobs, money, and were forced to stay at home, the schools shifted to teaching new skills like cryptocurrency trading and blockchain development careers.

 

In the first year of the Masterclass, approximately 70,000 Africans were educated by the end of 2020. Binance has subsequently stepped up its efforts, giving education resources to over 177,000 Africans in Q1 2021 and over 179,500 in Q2 2021, laying the groundwork for Africans to become financially independent and well-informed.

 

“In the worldwide market, blockchain education is at the centre of our emphasis. As a blockchain infrastructure provider, we’re dedicated to ensuring that a growing number of people have access to accurate information about the ecosystem’s operations. Africa is a crucial market for Binance since we see blockchain as a huge opportunity for the entire continent.” Emmanuel Babalola, Binance Africa’s Director, stated.

 

Binance is dedicated to blockchain developers, providing them with the tools and skills needed to build solutions and emerge as great blockchain talent in addition to training beginners and enthusiasts. Binance taught over 1000 blockchain developers in Africa in Q1 2021 and set aside a $1 million fund for African developers. The 8-week masterclass culminated with a demo show including newly constructed products leveraging blockchain technology and skills learned during the developer training by top registrants. Here is a testimonial from one of our Binance Masterclass graduates, Opeyemi Olabode:

 

“My expectations were exceeded by the 8-week Masterclass. I was able to learn a great deal both technically and business-wise. Being given the opportunity to manage a team also aided in the development of my leadership skills, as students from all backgrounds, cultures, and timezones were present. My team came in third place, and with the facilitators promising help and resources, I see this as a huge opportunity. Finally, I had the opportunity to share my knowledge with other students, and I met many smart developers like myself who will undoubtedly make Africa proud.”
