Bitfinex partners with ODEM to expand cryptocurrency and blockchain education
Digital asset platform Bitfinex and on-demand education and employment marketplace ODEM SA have collaborated to produce a new model of education on the role of digital token in the blockchain-enabled economy.
The idea is to provide an innovative token transaction simulation model, designed and operated by ODEM, using Bitfinex as its premier liquidity platform.
Bitfinex and ODEM will launch a series of programmes and courses aimed at increasing the level of education of both novice and advanced Bitfinex users who are interested in obtaining more knowledge about the technical features of digital tokens. In conjunction with these educational programmes, ODEM will launch a full simulation of its education marketplace. Bitfinex will provide the liquidity for ODEM transactions, reflected through ODEM’s smart contracts. This way, Bitfinex users purchasing educational programmes on the ODEM Marketplace using the same credentials as on Bitfinex will be able to view their ODEM Token transactions on Bitfinex’s order book.
“We’re excited to be the first to market with completely mirrored fiat-to-crypto trades in our education and employment marketplace,” says Richard Maaghul, CEO at ODEM. “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 fuelled by liquidity provided by Bitfinex. With their support of the overall decentralised ecosystem and focus on community-driven social impact, Bitfinex was a clear driver for us.”
Bitfinex users will be able to obtain access to all educational programs on the ODEM Marketplace directly from the platform’s website. Bitfinex can leverage these programs to obtain a holistic view of cryptocurrency markets and trends, while also further enhancing users’ understanding of how the platform operates.
“Our collaboration with ODEM is a natural extension of our role as the premier trading platform worldwide,” says Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex. “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.”
