LOOK: This Company Teaches Students About Crypto and Blockchain Technology
Global Miranda Miner Group launches its nationwide caravan to educate students on the fundamentals of next-generation technology.
Statistics show that nearly 7 million Filipinos or about 6.13% of the country’s population own cryptocurrencies in 2022 with rates expected to grow by 15.73% from 2023 to 2027. This makes it viable for Filipinos to learn more about crypto, as well as the many uses of blockchain technology.
Given how there are over 60% of people lack familiarity with these digital assets, one way for Filipinos to have a better grasp of these new technologies is by educating them. This is why Arlone “Paul” Abello—known as Coach Miranda Miner—launched educational sessions to teach the next generation about these emerging technologies.
Learning About Crypto and Blockchain
Guided by the company’s mission of empowering the next generation of finance and technology professionals, Global Miranda Miner Group (GMMG) CEO Mr. Abello launched “CrypTalk: University Caravan.” This project has so far visited 12 of the country’s largest universities, including the University of Sto. Tomas, Ateneo de Naga, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Rizal Technological University, University of San Jose-Recoletos, and Holy Angel University—with a total attendance of 2000 students.
In line with this project, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and Binance Academy concluded introductory training sessions on blockchain and cryptocurrency in five local universities last April.
Moving forward, GMMG will visit Republic Central Colleges in Pampanga as its first stop for the academic year 2023-2024 and will mount a discussion exploring blockchain and cryptocurrency trends and their impact on finance, regulations, and security. It also aims to expand its reach to more colleges in the Visayas and Mindanao regions.
Highlighting the Importance of Crypto Adoption
“Understanding cryptocurrency enhances students’ financial literacy and decision-making skills, empowering them to navigate this complex landscape with confidence. Learning about blockchain opens up opportunities for students to engage with these platforms and potentially earn income, which can be a valuable skill in the digital economy,” Coach Miranda Miner explained.
“With the vast potential of cryptocurrencies and DeFi, there are also risks associated with scams, fraudulent schemes, and security vulnerabilities. Students need to be aware of the precautions they should take to protect themselves and their assets in the Web3 environment,” he added.
Given the high demand for crypto and blockchain education, Coach Miranda Miner sees a future where higher education curricula include specialized courses on blockchain, cryptocurrency, and Finance 4.0, emphasizing decentralized finance, financial inclusion, risk management, and ethical practices.
By pushing through with this educational program, it becomes much easier for Filipinos, especially Gen Z, to be enlightened about what these new technologies can bring. With proper education about how these can be properly and formally used, the next generations will find it easier to adapt to all the upcoming financial innovations.
And the more educated people get about crypto and blockchain, the more prepared they will be when these become the new norm.
