Revolut expands crypto course to staking
A month after launching staking for DOT, XTZ, ADA and ETH, Revolut is taking another step towards making crypto “more accessible”.
Revolut is launching another crypto learning course to help make digital assets more accessible.
Eight months on from the release of its first lot of crypto educational courses which reward users with tokens, the fintech is launching a “Polkadot Bonus” course made up of two lessons.
Having mastered the crypto basics in the first set of courses, users will now be introduced to the ins and outs of staking, one month after Revolut announced it would be launching crypto staking on DOT, XTZ, ADA and ETH crypto assets.
“We are continuing to make the crypto world more accessible as the interest in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology continues to rise,” Revolut crypto general manager Emil Urmanshin said.
Millions of customers have completed the ‘Learn & Earn’ courses, with one million people completing the course in the first month alone.
“We believe that the only way customers can make informed decisions about their finances is by making sure that they have all the right tools to understand how crypto works,” he continued.
In the first lesson, users will learn about the process of staking, while the second focuses on the multichain concept and multichain interaction.
For customers in the UK and EEA, up to £/€8 is available in DOT tokens if they take the short courses and pass a final quiz.
Customers can then stake their recently earned tokens in-app.
“Considering recent regulatory developments, we strongly believe that the timing for this course is right; customers will have the opportunity to understand what “on-chain” staking is, understand how it works and make sure that they feel comfortable to put their crypto to work and earn staking rewards on their balances,” Urmanshin said.
“We're seeing growing demand from consumers to learn more about crypto, and we're excited to build on the success of Revolut’s Learn & Earn program with this new staking course to continue to bridge the gap between Web2 and Web3,” Polkadot co-founder Robert Habermeier said.
