Binance, the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange, via its Binance Masterclass education series, plans to equip up to a thousand 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 31 January 2021, beginning with a two-hour Binance Masterclass — Developers’ Edition on “Careers in Blockchain Technology”, where Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) will introduce the programme — the Binance Smart Chain and Binance Africa teams will host weekly programmes (for eight 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 eight-week programme will be coordinated by crypto industry thought leaders from ChainIDE and Xend to Bundle and the BSC team.

The Binance Masterclass series is an ongoing monthly free crypto education webinar hosted by the Binance Africa team. In 2020, Binance Africa successfully educated over 70 000 Africans about crypto fundamental and practical tutorials on how to set up an account — and buying and selling crypto, technical analysis and crypto trading.

The Binance Africa team has organised more than 400 free events in 2020, getting attendees across more than 40 countries (mostly African) online and offline.

Binance continues to expand its crypto education efforts on the continent in 2021, starting with the Binance Masterclass— Developers‘ Edition: “Careers in Blockchain Technology”.

In addition to Binance CEO’s keynote speech, this edition of Binance Masterclass will include two key sessions: Careers in Blockchain Technology (led by Chuta Chimezie) and BSC and Becoming a Blockchain Developer (led by the team lead for Binance Smart Chain).

The masterclass on 31 January aims to increase product awareness for blockchain development within Africa using BSC. Attendees will:

  • Acquire high-income development skills;
  • Learn blockchain development with Binance for free; and
  • Receive a certificate of participation issued on Binance Smart Chain (for those that complete the eight-week course).

Binance Masterclass will also be giving away US$1 000 worth of crypto during the event.

The eight-week programme on Rebuilding Financial Systems on Blockchain begins on 1 February. Click here to register and see the schedule below:
