Today, we are announcing the “Bitmama Credits Programme” which aims to support young people globally with skills and resources to transition into the blockchain/ NFT/ web3 ecosystem.
Blockchain is undoubtedly the infrastructure for the future of money, the internet and human interactions. However, the majority of digital natives including those in the tech ecosystem are not yet ready for what is coming. Globally and in Africa, crypto adoption still stands at less than 10% among internet users. Our “Credits Programme” is designed to support in providing a bridge for this knowledge gap.
The programme which is expected to kick off in the first quarter of 2022, is targeted at software developers, growth & product managers, designers, product marketers, accelerators, developer camps & technology hubs as well as anyone curious about technology and the blockchain ecosystem, just as we are.
The credits will provide access to a global learning curriculum for beginners, intermediate and advanced tracks into the ecosystem. This will cover all things relating to development around cryptos, defi, NFTs, DAOs, and web3.
Other perks of the Bitmama Credits Programme
Selected recipients of the Credits will also have access to internship opportunities within Bitmama and our local and international partner blockchain firms.
We will also support developers in the programme with our APIs to build out blockchain applications and provide soft funding alongside our investors, for some of the best applications.
Strong community and access to a global network that can be leveraged for quick growth within the ecosystem.
Commenting on the programme, Ruth Iselema, CEO – Bitmama, “while blockchain is the future, a lot of young people do not realise it yet or it is still vague to a lot. As a company, we are right at the forefront of simplifying crypto access for millions of people, which is evident in our products. This Credits programme is one of the ways we want to help make crypto mainstream”.
“This is a major investment for us, but it is an investment back into our community and as you may know, building strong communities is one of the anchors of the blockchain ecosystem”, Ebovi Wali, Chief Growth Officer, Bitmama said.
