Coinbase users around the world can win cryptocurrency just by learning about blockchain.
The initiative, called Coinbase Earn, is now open to users in more than 100 countries, set to hand out more than $100 million in crypto.
Coinbase users can earn Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC), Basic Attention Token (BAT) and 0x (ZRX) for “answering quizzes, completing tasks, and trying new decentralized protocols.”
“The rationale behind Coinbase Earn is that as we progress from mining cryptocurrency to buying it to earning it, we open up new opportunities for people to learn about blockchain technology.
With this international expansion, anyone with a smartphone in a supported country can now earn crypto while they learn about crypto just by setting up a free Coinbase account. This means millions more people now have a trusted, safe, and legal bridge to the cryptoeconomy – even if they don’t have a credit card or bank account with which to buy cryptocurrency.”
Coinbase Earn first launched for users interested in learning about the Stellar network.
“Stellar is a platform that connects banks, payment systems, and people. Learn how it works and you’ll earn XLM.”
