Blockchain and cryptocurrency education and technology will also be a staple at the school so the student can educate their parents as well as understand the technology of the future.
“We encourage the cryptocurrency sector to contribute more to humanitarian projects. The #BuiltWithBitcoin initiative is an example of bitcoin being used as more than a speculative tool but a testament to the usefulness of cryptocurrency. To date, we have built two schools – a nursery, and a primary school in Rwanda, Africa- and provided scholarships to Afghan refugees, and plan to continue these philanthropic ventures.”
Paxful currently aims to build 100 schools across Africa as well as donate to many other African education causes.
