Binance is bringing crypto education to Nigerian universities. Binance is the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider and it is sponsoring a Campus Masterclass Series for Nigerian university students as part of its objective to increase crypto adoption and financial inclusion for Africans.
In a post-pandemic world afflicted by economic downturn and rising prices, the Binance Campus Masterclass Series aims to empower students by introducing them to practical strategies to obtain financial freedom. Binance is ensuring that students have access to basic resources to help them succeed in school and beyond as blockchain technology continues to revolutionize economies.

The activities of the series started in FUTMinna on 3 February 2022, educating crypto fans about the opportunities available in the crypto ecosystem. The event recorded more than 400 people in attendance, learning about the basics of blockchain, the Binance ecosystem, the basics of trading, and how to protect their crypto and avoid getting scammed.
Binance continues to be at the leading position of crypto education, making sure that crypto enthusiasts are well-grounded with necessary information. Its education system is targeted at increasing crypto awareness in Africa, the Binance Campus Masterclass started in January 2020, providing education that ranges from crypto trading to crypto careers in the blockchain.
