Binance To Coach 1000+ Developers in Africa in the First Quarter of 2021

Binance

A major part of Binance Africa’s 2021 plans is to multiply crypto education and adoption all over Africa. This plan started in 2020 where Binance successfully trained over 70,000 Africans about the fundamentals of crypto , practical tutorials on how to set up a Binance account – and buy & sell crypto, technical analysis and crypto trading.

Binance is starting this year with a Masterclass that aims to equip up to 1000 African blockchain designers with the proper tools and skills to create their first DApps on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network. All within the first quarter of 2021.
