Bitfinex just announced a new partnership with Odem, a platform that operates in the field of on-demand blockchain education. This agreement will lead to the development of a token transaction simulator created by Odem. Bitfinex will be used for liquidity.
In the blockchain and crypto sector, education and training are essential, and for this reason, many new tools are being developed to train future experts.
In addition to the training part of this partnership, there is also the launch of a marketplace where users can buy blockchain courses with the same credentials they use to login to Bitfinex.
Odem’s CEO, Richard Maaghul, commented:
“We’re excited to be the first to market with completely mirrored fiat-to-crypto trades in our education and employment marketplace. Mirroring blockchain transactions allows users to view their payment activity reflected through our smart contracts in real-time and viewable through Etherscan.io. Transactions conducted by ODEM’s Token simulation are fueled by liquidity provided by Bitfinex. With their support of the overall decentralized ecosystem and focus on community-driven social impact, Bitfinex was a clear driver for us.”
In addition, access to tools that can be interoperable with each other is a big advantage for users. This way they can start to familiarise themselves with the theory but also with the practice, as pointed out by the CTO of Bitfinex, Paolo Ardoino:
“Our collaboration with ODEM is a natural extension of our role as the premier trading platform worldwide. By educating more individuals on the uses and value of cryptocurrency and the vital role it plays in powering the blockchain economy, we are encouraging greater understanding and adoption of digital currencies. We’re confident that through continued, dynamic and relevant education provided by expert educators on ODEM’s platform, Bitfinex users will receive an advanced service offering.”
The whole system will obviously be registered and managed on the Ethereum blockchain and therefore accessible through a wallet, making it easier to manage all the new skills that will be added to the users’ CVs.
