According to a representative from Bybit, "our goal is to teach young people the knowledge and skills they need to understand and engage with blockchain technology."
Bybit, a cryptocurrency exchange, has teamed up with Innovation Growth Hub, a technology incubator in Nigeria, to teach young Africans about blockchain.
The Guardian states→ that the curriculum would include online lectures, practical hands-on exercises, and interactive conversations led by blockchain technology professionals to help students understand.
Bybit's ecosystem and products, as well as blockchain technology and its potential applications, would be taught as part of this relationship. According to the report, the students would also receive incentives for their participation.
The application process is available on IG Hub's website, and participation is open to anyone.
According to an unknown Bybit representative quoted in The Guardian:
"our goal is to teach young people the information and skills they need to comprehend and engage with blockchain technology. Thus, we will collaborate with Innovation Growth Hub to provide participants with a one-of-a-kind educational opportunity."
There has been a rise in interest in blockchain courses throughout Africa. Free Web3 training was provided by Binance Charity and Women in Tech to 2,800 women in rural communities in South Africa and Brazil in January.
One thousand Africans were awarded full scholarships to Utiva, a Nigerian technology training company, so that they may participate in Utiva's year-long skill training program.
