BNB Chain Launches Education Course for Web3 Developers in Latin America

BNB Chain, created by the Binance crypto exchange, together with the Latin American educational platform Platzi, announced the launch of a Web3 development course for the region.

By the end of the year, the course should be available to 30,000 students. BNB Chain Investment Director Gwendolyn Regina said that the course is aimed at developing the skills of developers.

“This will be the main educational resource available in Spanish for Web2 developers to use Web3 with BNB Chain,” she said.

The initiative aims to increase the adoption of blockchain and Web3 in the region. Generally, the biggest barriers to entry into the industry are the inaccessibility of education, as well as the fuzzy rules of local governments.

Even among those who have already purchased cryptocurrencies, the understanding of how the technology works is often misunderstood. Therefore, education is a key factor for the development of the cryptocurrency industry.

This is even more important in regions like Latin America, where crypto can empower local people outside of traditional financial institutions, Regina noted.

To encourage participation in the new course, those who attend the Developer Camp in Bogota this September will have the chance to receive a scholarship. However, the number of scholarships for the new online course is limited.

Earlier, the head of the Office of National Taxes and Customs of Colombia (DIAN), Luis Carlos Reyes, said that the government of the country plans to launch its own digital currency in the near future.
