The Abu Dhabi Global Market Academy (ADGMA) has launched a School of Digital Assets in partnership with Binance Academy, Avnon Academy, and the Center for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE).
ADGMA’s new School of Digital Assets will offer foundation, intermediate and advance level programmes that explore themes of metaverse, NFTs, crypto, blockchain, DeFi and cybersecurity.
Additionally, ADGMA also launched an open access blockchain and crypto learning hub in partnership with Binance Academy — the first government crypto education initiative of its kind to be rolled out in the region.
As part of the School of Digital Assets, this tie-up with Binance Academy is the first government crypto education initiative of its kind to be rolled out in the region. Binance Academy along with ADGMA aims to build digital programmes in over 20 languages in the format of video, audio, and text-based articles hosted on ADGM Academy’s LMS that will facilitate offline workshops for learners.
Bader Kalooti, Head of Growth and Operations for MENA at Binance said, “Binance is a pioneer in user education, and its educational arm, Binance Academy, is one of the largest learning hubs in the blockchain industry. Our partnership with ADGMA is another step in bringing accessible and standard-setting blockchain and crypto education to all.”
In line with this, the School of Digital Assets will promote holistic learning that focuses on educating professional on digital assets, economics and blockchain, as well as upskilling, re-skilling, and enhancing the employability of local talent to ensure long-term sustainability in market growth.
