Imagine receiving cryptocurrency rewards while educating yourself on the subject? This is now the case on Revolut. The neo-bank has just launched a program that allows users to generate Polkadot (DOT) simply by taking a few quizzes on the mobile app.
Revolut partners with Polkadot
This isn’t a big news in the cryptocurrency world. The ability to earn cryptocurrency rewards in exchange for learning about them is nothing new. It was even made famous by Coinbase in its Coinbase Earn program in 2018.
However, this news is a little different. For the first time, it’s not a company in the cryptocurrency industry that is offering such a program but a neo-bank. Revolut, founded in 2015, has launched its “learn and earn” program in partnership with Polkadot (DOT).
This one allows you to learn about the Polkadot ecosystem and its parachains via short videos or lessons. In exchange, up to 15 dollars of rewards are distributed in DOT, the 12th most capitalized cryptocurrency on the market, in case of good answers to the quizzes.
More concretely, everything happens directly on the mobile application of the neo-bank. For the moment, only two lessons have been published, but it is highly likely that there will be new ones in the coming days. The first one, entitled “Crypto Basic” allows to better understand the basics of blockchain. The second one is particularly focused on Polkadot.
For now, the neo-bank has not specified whether other crypto-currencies will be added to the program. That said, according to Emil Urmashin, managing director of Revolut’s cryptocurrency arm, it seems that customers are clamoring for it:
“There is a huge appetite from our customers to learn more about cryptocurrencies. The ‘Learn & Earn’ program will help them better understand the trends, risks and potential opportunities associated with crypto-currencies.”
This is a notable and remarkable initiative that is important to highlight in such a market environment. With 18 million customers worldwide, Revolut makes the cryptocurrency ecosystem accessible in a fun way.
