We support Kazakhstan's goal of becoming a leading digital technology player, which would not be possible without increased education and blockchain adoption across the country. Our partnership with government organizations in Kazakhstan is another step towards accessible and standardized blockchain and crypto education for everyone.
Kazakhstan has become the first country in the world to introduce a model educational program on blockchain industry on a nationwide scale.
