Binance’s country manager for the Philippines, Kenneth Stern, has spoken to over 400 students at the Lyceum University of the Philippines about “MONEY WISE: Breaking Barriers in Bitcoin,” the international crypto exchange announced.
According to Binance, accepting LPU’s invitation to talk about the advantages of digital assets is in line with its mission for financial inclusion and spreading blockchain education in the country. As Stern toured his audience “deep into the realm of digital assets as well as sharing about how crypto works.”
“Closing the knowledge gap is essential when it comes to crypto. The Web3 industry is still very much in its infancy, and we see Binance as a very small part of a much larger financial ecosystem. Our role is focused on providing a user-friendly, safe, and convenient channel for users to enter and explore the ecosystem of decentralized finance,” he shared.
According to Binance, its visit to Lyceum is part of its “collective effort to increase crypto adoption in the region and is one of the many ways Binance is educating the future batch of professionals for the era of Web3.”
Aside from Lyceum, Binance also had a partnership with another collegiate institution this year. It partnered with the management students of Enderun Colleges with the aim to further boost web3 education in the Philippines.
