Bitcoin is one of the most popular buzzwords in recent times. Data in a survey conducted by the analysis firm, Exploding Topics, found that 89% of the participants knew about Bitcoin.
Out of the 1,550 women who participated in the study, 95% said that they know about Bitcoin, but 43% of them stated that they would like to learn even more. We see these same desires to learn more in underprivileged communities where people are showing an interest in Bitcoin and digital assets.
A variety of grassroot initiatives are being launched in order to provide crypto education to these communities.
An example of one such initiative is run by Najah Roberts, CEO of crypto Blockchain Plug – a crypto education center based in California. The project is titled “The Digital Financial Revolution.”
Roberts stated that “from May 29 – July 13, my team and I will be going to different cities in the U.S. to help people download digital wallets, along with educating them on why Bitcoin is critically important to the black and brown community.”
Roberts and her team also plan on going to the poorest places to host “corner classes”. This means that they will literally “set up shop in the middle of inner cities.” Her goal is to give everyone $10 worth of BTC simply for registering.
Bitcoin analyst, Tone Tatem, launched his own initiative called Litchain. This is an educational initiative that is expected to spur economic growth in the rural town of Gaffney in South Carolina.
According to Tate, the initiative will include a grassroots campaign, advertising and online courses provided by LitU, Tate’s online university.
