The academy is targeting the existing 4 million crypto owners as well as new learners getting into the blockchain sector
Tech company, GoldPesa has opened a blockchain academy at ABC Place in Westlands, Nairobi to bridge the knowledge gap and demystify existing myths in blockchain-related digital assets and web 3.
A report by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) released in June 2021 indicates that 8.5% of the population, or 4.25 million people, own cryptocurrencies in the country. This places Kenya ahead of developed economies such as the United States, which is ranked sixth, with 8.3% of its population owning digital currencies.
According to Shamik Raja, CEO of GoldPesa, the academy will revolutionize the world of cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and the captivating landscape of Web 3. It will not only empower individuals to boldly embrace Web 3, but also embark on an “odyssey of unlimited possibilities.”
“In an oversaturated landscape of obsolete information and redundant courses, aspiring learners in the blockchain and crypto education domain often face disappointment,” says Raja.
In an industry riddled with outdated information and lackluster courses, Raja adds that the blockchain academy is poised to set a new standard in blockchain and crypto education at a time when there is a growing frustration among eager students who find themselves swamped with “recycled material and tedious theories”.
“By providing actionable insights and strategic acumen, they enable their esteemed learners to navigate the digital realm with confidence, propelling them towards lucrative passive income endeavors. With a collaborative and nurturing environment, GoldPesa Academy Kenya fosters connections and partnerships, fueling transformative change driven by the disruptive forces of cryptocurrencies and Web 3 technologies,” Raja explains.
The academy’s curriculum offers various courses such as a passive income masterclass and a decentralized finance masterclass, professional training programs on how to “tokenize your business” and create a digital asset portfolio, as well as courses that delve into the core aspects of digital finance and provide actionable strategies
Whether it’s creating and monetizing digital products, understanding the potential of decentralized finance, navigating the world of non-fungible tokens, or capitalizing on the next bull run, the academy’s syllabus covers the “most relevant topics” in the industry.
“We are geared up and looking to impact many lives within the region, enabling them to understand the tech and how they can leverage out of this through business and creation of income,” says Yadav Jani, Director GoldPesa Academy Kenya.
