PumaPay, a blockchain payments system that provides an open-source “free-of-charge blockchain-based protocol” that decentralizes the transaction process, announced on Thursday it has teamed up with cryptocurrency data resource platform Cointelligence to make cryptocurrency and blockchain education accessible for everyone.
According to the duo, the education will be through the Cointelligence Academy, which is an online education platform hosted by Cointelligence. The platform provides classes that can help students with no previous cryptocurrency knowledge and basic tech know-how learn the intricacies of the blockchain and crypto. The goal is to help usher in mass adoption by demonstrating the possibilities of cryptocurrency.
“PumaPay is focused on mass adoption from a different angle. A key part of making cryptocurrency attractive to the general public is making it a viable payment option wherever they shop. PumaPay has created an easy way for businesses to accept crypto payments, including recurring subscription fees.”
While sharing more details about the collaboration, PumaPay CEO, Yoav Dror, stated:
“A lot of people see crypto as a gimmick or a craze that’s sure to fail. Our mission is to show businesses and customers alike how easy it is to transact in crypto. It was natural for us to want to support Cointelligence Academy in their mission to help people understand crypto.”
Cointelligence CEO On Yavin, also commented:
“I believe that cryptocurrency is the biggest revolution this world has seen but people won’t take part in a revolution that they don’t understand. My goal with Cointelligence Academy is to make it easy for everyone to learn about cryptocurrency and get excited about it.”
PumaPay went on to add that its support of Cointelligence Academy has allowed Cointelligence to offer these classes for free, making them accessible for consumers no matter where they are located or what their financial situation is.
