Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange platform, collaborated with the University of Nicosia in offering free metaverse courses. 

Under the partnership announced by Binance Charity, the philanthropic arm of Binance, and the Institute for the Future (IFF) of the university, Binance will offer five full scholarships for students from Cyprus and Greece. The students will learn the world’s leading graduate program in the field to obtain a master of science degree in blockchain and Digital Currency from the university. 

Moreover, the partnership includes offering free metaverse-based courses, but learners are required to possess an NFT. The students, who would like to get a certification after completing the course, should pay a small fee to receive an NFT certificate minted on the Ethereum blockchain. The course will be delivered on the blockchain and in the metaverse.

The university said more than 14,000 students registered for attending the online 12-week course “NFTs and the Metaverse.” Web 3.0 entrepreneurs, pioneering NFT creators and collectors, and investors will deliver lectures during the course. 

Commenting on the partnership, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao tweeted that the world is moving forward. 

Head of Binance Charity Helen Hai said the interest in blockchain increased over the past years, however academic institutions were taking slow steps in covering the needs of this area. 

The students will learn modules in law and regulation in blockchain, digital currency, principles of money, banking and finance, and entrepreneurship management in addition to blockchain systems and architectures with a focus on existing and emerging crypto applications, such as Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and asset tokenization. 

It is not the first time that Binance did something in favor of crypto and blockchain education. Earlier this month, it announced offering free courses online to educate crypto users on cryptocurrency, blockchain, Web 3, and the metaverse.

Through Binance Academy, the courses come under the title of “Binance Learn & Earn.” Binance and non-Binance users can complete the courses. But it is free of charge for Binance users, according to Bitcoinist.

The Beginner Track consists of courses, which are covering the fundamentals of the crypto world and blockchain, decentralization, Web 3.0 and metaverse, and trading and investment strategies. The intermediate and advanced levels will be available in the future.
