The Zcash founders partner with Gemini and Binance for their new crypto education program as we reported previously in the Zcash latest news about the Crypto in Context program so let’s find out more.
The Electric Coin Company, the Zcash founders partner with Gemini and Binance to work on the Crypto in Context platform, a new education program that is designed to help spread the word of crypto across the world. Crypto in Context is a new education initiative that is led by the makers of Zcash. As for many newcomers on the market, cryptocurrency can be incredibly unfamiliar and complicated to understand at first but it has the ability to help many countries and communities that are hurt by the monetary policies and no access to banking services.
Today we launched the Crypto in Context program, an initiative connecting industry leaders with underserved and burgeoning communities — for dialog & discovery, networking, and collaborative workshops focused on cryptocurrencies & financial literacy. 1/https://t.co/Ah0bYMhg7h

Here is how Crypto in Context can help. The initiative has a goal to spread the word of crypto across the world and asked help from companies to create the educational program and to set up workshops and more. The Electric Coin Company unveiled the initiative through a blog post yesterday, noting that the partners such as Messari, Gemini, and Flexa helped the original pilot program and that the Binance Digital Currency Group also joined the team. According to the post, the project was created in South Bronx by a teacher named Carlos Acevedo who was teaching his students about how to become more financially literate and reached out for industry assistance in order to educate them even further.
The initial alliance led to a two-day workshop that yielded three student internships which eventually led to a second workshop with the Electric Coin Company sponsoring the events. One event was virtual hosted by the Syrian refugee Moe Ghashim who taught his fellow refugees in Turkey about cryptocurrency. Right now, Crypto in context wants to spread the educational efforts with further events planning to allow local leaders to propose new events and even host them. The Electric Coin Company will fund events including lining up presenters and sponsors:
“Crypto is the first real attempt to allow people from any background to get access to value. We’ve been either sanctioned by other governments or policed by our own. Crypto in Context adds collaboration on top of access to value. For example: An unprivileged person from the Middle East can collaborate with a privileged person from an advanced country to exchange value and ideas freely. This is simply mind-blowing.”
