Binance Academy, the education program of global cryptocurrency exchange Binance, announced its collaboration with management college students of Enderun Colleges to further boost web3 education in the Philippines.
“Through this partnership, Binance Academy and Enderun Colleges will be distributing learning materials and will provide proper training sessions covering web3 and blockchain technology to teachers, trainers, and educators,” Binance Academy revealed in a media release.
Established in 2005, the Enderun Colleges is a private non-sectarian undergraduate college in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig City.
Meanwhile, Leon Foong, the Head of APAC Market at Binance, expressed his belief that the country can headline web3 adoption and further hone the technology.
“Philippines has the potential to be the hub of web3 technologies. We hope to foster the next generation that can carry out the role as web3 technology experts. Binance Academy and Enderun Colleges see this partnership as a long-term partnership to drive the industry forward and we are honored to pioneer with Enderun Colleges,” he stated.
Moreover, Binance stressed that the partnership will also be an opportunity to further push for innovative programs for the next generations.
“Students get exposure to different financial instruments in our system, and crypto is just one of them. Even though web3 is globally present, it is still a new topic. We hope to set the standards for the education of this new subject and we are confident that this partnership can help our students be prepared to enter the fast-paced Web3 industry,” Daniel Perez, Senior Vice-President of Enderun Colleges, said in a statement.
Prior to this partnership, Binance also collaborated with the Cybercrime Investigation and Coordination Center (CICC) to further expand Binance’s educational reach to not only business movers and regulators but also to students and educators. Last month, they conducted a blockchain forensics seminar for the country’s agencies to fight crypto crime. (Read more: Binance & PH Cybercrime Unit Detail Crypto Crime Reports)

Binance, along with mobile e-wallet GCash, is the most trusted fintech platform in the country, according to a recent study by the polling and data analytics firm WR Numero Research (WRN).
However, being affected by the three-year moratorium of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), the firm is still not properly licensed. Currently, it is trying to acquire a virtual asset services provider (VASP) and electronic money issuers (EMI) licenses by taking over a local company that already has the said licenses.
