Revolut, a global financial app, has joined a growing list of companies advancing cryptocurrency education through the “Learn and Earn” initiative. The concept rewards users with crypto for learning about essential topics in the blockchain industry.
Revolut Partners Polkadot to Launch “Learn and Earn”
In a press release shared with CryptoPotato, Revolut, valued at $33 billion, said the feature is available to all its customers, and they can earn up to $15 for completing the courses and passing a final quiz.
The British neobank also noted that it launched the new feature in collaboration with the Web3 Foundation, the founder of multichain network Polkadot. The rewards distributed to learners will be in DOT, Polkadot’s native cryptocurrency.
Revolut said it currently has two short courses. The first covers basic concepts about cryptocurrencies and their underlying blockchain technology. It also educates users on the differences between cryptocurrency and fiat currency and the risks associated with the crypto market.
The second focuses on Polkdadot and how it helps “unites blockchains into Web3.” It also covers DOT, Polkadot’s uses cases, and key features on the network, such as governance and Relay Chain.
The UK-based banking platform said it would continue to expand its Learn and Earn program, adding more courses to help advance crypto education and financial literacy.
“There’s a huge appetite from our customers to learn more about cryptocurrencies. ‘Learn & Earn‘ will help them better understand the trends, risks and potential opportunities associated with crypto. Our collaboration with Web3 Foundation on Polkadot, one of the most popular blockchain networks, will help customers become more familiar with crypto concepts,” said Emil Urmashin, Crypto General Manager at Revolut.
Revolut Loves Crypto
Meanwhile, this is not Revolut’s first foray into the crypto world. The company’s history with cryptocurrencies started in 2017 when it listed Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin for trading.
