As Latin America continues to be a hotbed for adoption and cryptocurrency-related activities, BNB Chain is getting ready to introduce a Web3 programming course for students in the Latin American region.
A Web3 development course will be made available for Latin America through Platzi and BNB Chain, a blockchain network developed by cryptocurrency exchange Binance.
The course hopes to be available to 30,000 students by the end of the year. The goal of this course, according to Gwendolyn Regina, investment director at BNB Chain, is to improve developers’ skills.
“This is going to be the major educational resource available in Spanish for Web2 developers to build on Web3 with BNB Chain.”
The goal of this initiative is to encourage the region’s wider use of Web3 education and blockchain technology. The biggest obstacles to entering the industry are typically related to accessibility, education, and murky local government rules.
The grasp of how the technology works are frequently misinterpreted, even among individuals who have previously bought cryptocurrency. Nearly 10% of respondents in a Motley Fool survey who possess cryptocurrency stated they don’t know how it actually operates.
As a result, education is crucial. In places like Latin America, where cryptocurrency has the ability to empower the local community outside of conventional, messy financial institutions, it is even more crucial. Rhonda stated
“If we increase the accessibility to resources to build Web3 tools on BNB Chain, we can significantly support the development of the region.”
El Salvador, the first nation to accept Bitcoin as legal cash, is making an effort to inform the people about cryptocurrencies. The nation launched a grassroots certificate program called Mi Primer Bitcoin, or “My First Bitcoin”. The goal is to raise young people’s crypto knowledge.
A small number of scholarships for the online course will be offered to attendees of the BNB Chain Developer Camp in September in Bogota, Colombia, in an effort to promote enrollment in the new course.
Latin America is becoming a more important center for innovation, adoption, and Web3 technology. Prepaid crypto cards were introduced by Binance and Mastercard in Argentina earlier this month.
“Latin America needs to balance the retail experience with the building potential. There’s a big community that knows about crypto and its utility by daily experience,” says Regina.
