Give everyone a chance

Through this initiative, Jay-Z and Jack Dorsey intend to go beyond simple training. And for good reason, they go up to provide internet accessfor those in need, as the entrepreneur explains:

“Education is our starting point. It’s not just about Bitcoin [mais] local economies and self-confidence. Classes are free for all Marcy residents, including children. And to make it easier for you, we provide devices and data plans to anyone who needs them. »

As this quote mentions, children will indeed be welcome too. This happens in particular through a program called “Crypto Kids Campwhich will be aimed at 5 – 17 year olds, for two Saturdays.

In addition to online courses, face-to-face interventions are also to be expected. They will take place two evenings a week in the Marcy Houses neighborhood and the meal will be served.

In his philosophy,The Bitcoin Academy” connects at the initial values ​​of Bitcoin, namely, to allow everyone to manage their finances. This program goes even further, by also providing the necessary logistics, so that even disadvantaged people have a chance.

If vectors such as sports advertising or intuitive exchange platforms necessarily contribute to democratization, training undoubtedly remains the most powerful vehicle.

About the Author : Vincent Mayor


I timidly discovered the world of blockchain at the end of 2018 during my quest for financial freedom. Initially invested moderately, it was only two years later that I took the gamble of betting everything on the movement that was taking shape then. I then dedicate 2021 to training myself better to acquire more knowledge and seriousness. As I often like to say: I still have a billion things to learn. And what I do know, I want to share with you.
