To celebrate International Literacy Day, Binance would like to share why building a crypto literacy space for the community is essential and how to do so.

Binance believes that accessible knowledge for all is crucial. This International Literacy Day (September 8), we are going the extra mile to encourage crypto literacy by establishing conducive environments for Internet users worldwide.

Why Crypto Literacy Is Important

Employment opportunities

Because it is such a nascent field, blockchain and crypto offer tremendous potential for people passionate about the emerging technology. From trading to coding, there are tons of opportunities for crypto-literate people to carve a career in the industry.

Development of the space

Beyond the individual level, crypto literacy can help expand and improve the crypto space. As both curious learners and subject matter experts continue to enter the space, there is greater room for fruitful discussions that can move the industry forward.

For instance, educating policymakers on blockchain and crypto can help them make more informed decisions about the kind of regulations that need to be enforced to protect crypto investors and users.

Crypto adoption

As more people become aware of blockchain, crypto, and everything in between, it is only natural for adoption to increase. The more crypto-literate people, the easier it will be for new users to learn and get involved.

What Is a Crypto Literacy Space?

A crypto literacy space can be thought of as a resource-rich environment that can help stimulate learning and make it accessible to anyone. Such an environment isn’t limited to physical spaces like classrooms, either.

A crypto literacy space could be as simple as a weekly crypto program for aspiring professionals or a crypto research group for developers. Like other literacy spaces, crypto literacy spaces help motivate curious minds and nurture keen learners. 

How to Start Using a Literacy Space

Read free crypto resources

Since 2017, Binance has been building a free online library of crypto resources for anyone wanting to learn more about related topics. Visit Binance Blog or Binance Academy for articles and guides on all things crypto.

Take part in activities

If you’re unsure of how informed you are on a certain topic, why not take some quizzes to jog your memory or put your knowledge to the test? Hosted on Binance Academy, Binance’s Learn and Earn program encourages learners to familiarize themselves with crypto. Upon completion, readers can be rewarded with crypto to jump-start their crypto journey.
