Binance To Train 1000+ Developers in Africa in First Quarter of 2021

2021-01-21

A huge part of Binance Africa’s 2021 goals is to spread crypto education and adoption across Africa. This journey started in 2020 where we successfully educated over 70,000 Africans about crypto fundamentals, practical tutorials on how to set up an account - and buy & sell crypto, technical analysis and crypto trading.

We are kicking this year with a Masterclass that aims to equip up to 1000 African blockchain developers with the right tools and skills to build their first DApps on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network. All within the first quarter of 2021. 

From January 31, 2021, we will kick off the Binance Masterclass - Developers’ Edition tagged  ‘Careers in Blockchain Technology’ live on ZOOM.  Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao (CZ) will introduce the program, the Binance Smart Chain and Binance Africa teams will host a weekly program (for 8 weeks) under the theme Rebuilding Financial Systems on Blockchain

With this event, the Binance Africa and Binance Smart Chain teams aim to show the multitude of career options in the crypto and blockchain space - beyond crypto trading. The 8-week program will be coordinated by crypto industry thought leaders from ChainIDE, Xend, Bundle, as well as the BSC team.

Location: Zoom (first 1000 attendees) & YouTube
