Abu Dhabi Global Market is ramping up blockchain education in the region with a new School for Digital Assets. Launched via the financial centre’s knowledge arm, Abu Dhabi Global Market Academy (ADGMA), the school will focus on blockchain and digital assets education for professionals enrolled in the academy.
The school is a collaborative initiative of the Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE), Binance Academy, and Avnon Academy. The official launch was made on Wednesday during the Abu Dhabi Finance Week (ADFW) hosted by ADGM. The event takes place from November 14 through 18, 2022.
According to the announcement, The new ADGMA School of Digital Assets will offer education across multiple levels, including Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced level programmes. The programs will focus on the metaverse, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), Crypto, Blockchain, decentralised finance (DeFi) and Cybersecurity.
NFTs are blockchain-based digital files representing proof of ownership of a collectible, artwork or JPEGs. Recently, brands have unlocked an unlimited number of use cases creating an entirely new revenue option for businesses.
ADGMA wants to prepare professionals for the new age of blockchain technology as businesses continue to embrace NFTs, the metaverse and decentralised finance applications.
ADGMA also launched an expanded learning program offering free blockchain and crypto education in over 20 languages, in collaboration with Binance Academy. Binance is the world’s leading crypto exchange platform. Its venture arm Binance Labs has widened the company’s addressable market through partnerships like this one with ADGMA, acquisitions and multi-stage investments.
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.”
On the other hand, Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, COO at ADGM and Managing Director at ADGM Academy commented: “With the growing demand and added value around digital assets education and adoption, ADGM and ADGM Academy recognise the key role of specialised education along with the means to provide this at a professional level.”
Al Mazrouei highlighted Binance’s expertise in blockchain and crypto as one of the factors that make it a perfect partner for ADGMA in its quest to accelerate blockchain awareness in the region.
