1inch and Revolut have launched "Learn & Earn" course

1inch Network has teamed up with fintech firm Revolut to launch the "Learn & Earn" training course. Project participants will be able to learn the basics of DeFi in an exciting way and get rewards.

The "Learn & Earn" course as a part of the Revolut’s educational program runs with leading partners of the industry. The firm launched the training course in March 2022 and since then over 2.5 million students have joined it.

​​The project presented by 1inch and Revolut will broaden newcomers' understanding of decentralized finance (DeFi). After completing the course, each participant can start working independently with DeFi.

When we introduced the ‘Learn & Earn’ courses, we aimed to make the world of crypto more accessible. The results exceeded our expectations, demonstrating that there is a true customer need for this form of education,

said Emil Urmanshin, Crypto General Manager at Revolut

The three-lesson course provides users with basic information about DeFi:

• An insight into the functioning of the Decentralized exchanges (DEXes); 
• Principles of using 1inch’s Pathfinder algorithm;
• Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) governance.

For completing a lesson a student will receive a reward - 1INCH tokens. It will be added to the user’s Revolut crypto balance. Students can check the current status  in the app before starting a new lesson.

1inch Network is confident that increasing users’ knowledge of DeFi can trigger the mass adoption of applications in everyday life. Sergej Kunz, 1inch Network co-founder, said: “We are super excited about the course we are launching with Revolut, and we also hope it’ll pave the way for our in-depth collaboration.”

We will remind you that Revolut was one of the first financial firms to cease operations in the Russian Federation and Belarus after the start of a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. The service banned money transfers in these countries, and its co-founder Nikolay Storonsky Jr. criticised Russia's invasion from the outset of the war, calling it “totally abhorrent” and renounced his Russian citizenship.
