Revolut, a London-based financial technology company that offers banking services, has announced the launch of its flagship ‘Learn & Earn’ education courses.
The new courses are designed in conjunction with Polkadot and the program is designed to award as much as $15 to learners who complete the courses and pass the quiz at the end of the course.
The fintech unicorn said the Learn and Earn course was created to bring the right educational exposure to users bordering on cryptocurrencies, and the most popular blockchain networks. The course is divided into two, with ‘Crypto Basics’ and the ‘Polkadot Multichain Network’ being the outlines.
Under the Crypto Basics, the program will “educate customers on what cryptocurrencies are compared to fiat money; the meaning of a ‘decentralised system’; cryptography; the mechanics of the blockchain technology; and the risks associated with crypto investments.”
The insight into the Polkadot multi-chain network will showcase how the protocol unites blockchains in the Web3.0 ecosystem. As announced by the firm, the program will use “visual materials including interactive cards and videos to share key insights about Polkadot’s native token, DOT, as well as Polkadot’s use cases, Polkadot’s governance system, and the Polkadot’ Relay Chain’, the central chain used by the Polkadot network that allows specialised and public blockchain to connect in a unified network.”
Learn and Earn is one of the most common methods through which blockchain and crypto startups fuel interest amongst the masses to learn about their projects while earning incentives along the side. The concept is widespread amongst crypto trading platforms. However, the move by Revolut to launch a similar program is evident that there is a need to fuel the acceptance of crypto across the board.
“There’s a huge appetite from our customers to learn more about cryptocurrencies. ‘Learn & Earn ‘will help them better understand the trends, risks, and potential opportunities associated with Crypto. Our collaboration with Web3 Foundation on Polkadot, one of the most popular blockchain networks, will help customers become more familiar with crypto concepts,” said Emil Urmashin, Crypto General Manager at Revolut.
While starting with Polkadot, Revolut is optimistic the courses will be expanded to more protocols shortly.
