Indian cryptocurrency exchange CoinDCX announced on Wednesday 2 September that it will provide two specialised courses in cryptocurrency training through a new partnership.
According to CoinTelegraph, an organisation called Blockchain Council will provide the online training and blockchain certifications courses.
CoinDCX clarified that the courses will be available through its online learning platform, DCX Learn. “DCX Learn will offer CoinDCX’s exchange interface as part of Blockchain Council’s certification syllabus.”
“The courses will allow learning from experienced crypto evangelists,” CoinDCX added in a statement.
These will enhance the existence of CoinDCX’s educational platform DCX Learn. It also will offer trainees practice sessions using the exchange’s interface for simulated trading experience, according to CoinTelegraph.
In addition, the courses will complement the Blockchain Council’s existing certifications in blockchain technology, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Hyperledger.
This comes as a part of CoinDCX project TryCrypto. The Indian exchange invested $1.3 million into the project to make blockchain and cryptocurrency more accessible to mainstream users.
The TryCrypto funds will go towards educational initiatives, seminars, and online courses. Additionally, roadshows, awareness campaigns, meetups, community events, community engagement, and product trials are also expected, according to Your Story.
