Binance, one of the leading global cryptocurrency exchange platforms, has began an 8-week program equipping African blockchain developers with the right tools and skills to build their very first DApps on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network.
Changpeng Zhao, Binance CEO, during its launch event on January 31st, announced the allocation of $1 million to African Developers building projects on the Binance Smart Chain, in line with the company’s commitment to Africa and the growth of the blockchain ecosystem. “Africa is a really important segment in our mission and we want to continue to push these programs in Africa and other regions” said Changpend Zhao. “The Binance team wants to show you a multitude of career options in the crypto and blockchain space – beyond trading,” he added.
Since 2020, Binance has been faithfully offering free virtual crypto education courses under its Binance Masterclass Program: successfully educating over 70,000 Africans about crypto fundamentals, practical tutorials on how to set up a crypto account – and buy & sell crypto, technical analysis, and crypto trading. Amazingly, Binance plans to further this education to include DeFi and BSC.
Upon completion of the 8-weeks course on ‘Rebuilding Financial Systems on Blockchain’, there will also be a Binance Hackathon for African Dapps as announced by the coordinator of BSC network.

Note that the January 31st Developer’s edition of the Binance Masterclass series which set to train 1000 African developers, kicked off with over 19,000 registrations and over 25,000 playbacks on YouTube revealing the high demand for blockchain education in Africa. It is said that through the course of the 8-week program, coordinated by crypto industry thought leaders from ChainIDE, Xend, Bundle, as well as the BSC team, attendees will acquire high income development skills and learn blockchain development with Binance for FREE.
