British fintech company Revolut has launched a course to further enlighten its users on Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies. This innovative move was achieved in partnership with Polkadot. Taking the courses, users can earn up to $15 worth of Polkadot native token DOT.
The mission of the fintech company is to “build a fair and frictionless platform to use and manage money around the world”. With these new courses, the firm is putting another foot forward toward achieving its mission.
Globally, Revolut has a record of over 18 million users. Revolut users will be open to financial products and services options that better manage their investment. They will also be educated on the risks involved in crypto investments.
Customers stand to improve their knowledge of blockchain, recognized protocols and tokens including non-fungible tokens (NFTs). At the completion of the courses, participants are expected to complete a quiz after which the prize is awarded. The courses are currently only available to users in the United Kingdom and Europe.
So far, only two courses are available on the Revolut superapp. The first course Revolut is offering is ‘Crypto Basics’, a beginner’s lesson. Under Crypto Basics, topics such as decentralized systems, cryptography, fiat money in comparison with cryptocurrency, and blockchain technology will be covered. The risk that users may experience by investing in crypto is also taught in this course.
Next, is the multichain network, Polkadot-oriented course. Discussions on how Polkadot influences and unites the blockchain into Web3.0 are included in the second course. Accompanying the discussions, is a display of interactive cards and videos that provides insights into DOT use cases, and their governance.
Inclusive in the second course is the Relay chain which is the central chain utilized by the Polkadot network. It is the chain system that permits specialised public blockchains to fuse into a unified network.
According to the Crypto General manager at Revolut, Emil Urmashin, this collaboration with Web3 Foundation on Polkadot, will assist in familiarising customers with crypto concepts.”
Gradually, Revolut plans to introduce several arrays of courses before the end of the year.
