Coinbase Earn Opens to Public in Over 100 Countries

Coinbase Earn Opens to Public in Over 100 Countries

Global cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has finally released its Coinbase Earn program to members of the public in over 100 countries, as mentioned in its press release yesterday.

The much talked about program was initially launched towards the end of last year as a pilot program for education in cryptocurrency targeting mainstream participants, who were invite only, chosen by Coinbase. Early users of the program were able to learn about the 0x token based on Ethereum (the ZRX token), and earn some cryptocurrency in the process.

A survey the exchange had conducted earlier seemed to indicate that many newcomers were reluctant to invest money into cryptocurrency, but were keen to learn more about the new digital phenomenon:

“…one of the biggest barriers preventing people from exploring a new digital asset was a lack of knowledge about that asset. Many of the people we surveyed expressed a strong desire to begin learning about new and different crypto assets beyond Bitcoin, but didn’t know where to begin.”

And now, people from over 100 countries are able to learn more about cryptocurrency, while earning their very first cryptocurrency via the Coinbase Earn program. Reportedly, the program now offers quizzes about Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC) and Basic Attention Token (BAT), also earning the same tokens and coins for completing quizzes.

US-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is offering over USD 100 million in Stellar Lumens (XLM) to users who would like to participate in a study of the Stellar protocol.

The initiative is part of Coinbase’s cryptocurrency-focused educational program, Coinbase Earn. It is available to select US users who can earn a maximum of USD 50 each for participating in the program. The exchange says the first group of invitations to participate has already been sent; users outside of the US that are interested in the programme were invited to sign up to the waiting list.

This Coinbase Earn program was developed in partnership with Stellar, the native token of which (XLM) is currently ranked 9th by market capitalization, according to CoinMarketCap. Participants will be shown a series of five educational videos and then quizzed on the relevant content before earning their rewards.

XLM was added to Coinbase‘s main retail investor platform earlier this month, although clients in the UK or New York are currently unable to access this service.

Other programs on Coinbase Earn include courses on Zcash, Brave, and Ox.
