Decrypt’s Art, Fashion, and Entertainment Hub.
Decrypt, the next-generation media outlet navigating the intersection of culture and technology, in partnership with the Fananees NFT project, which brings MBC Group’s most beloved Ramadan characters to the exciting world of digital collectibles, and Weconn, a research and education-oriented initiative dedicated to exploring the diverse applications of blockchain technology, have launched Decrypt U in Arabic.
Decrypt U is an educational initiative providing learning about blockchain technology and the ever-expansive world of Web3. The new courses in Arabic were created from the ground up to cater to the Middle East and North African (MENA) region to cover the most relevant and fundamental topics in the industry. Students are invited to read through the course materials, then test their knowledge to be eligible to receive on-chain “graduation” certificates in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). The certificates will be awarded for free.
Once minted, the Decrypt U certificate NFTs serve as identifiers for partners to continuously reward students. Other projects’ NFTs, perks, discounts, and more will be distributed to certificate holders in the future.
Commenting on the launch of Decrypt U educational program in Arabic, Pavel Jakovlev, the Project Lead at Fananees NFT, said:
"We are proud to launch this educational initiative aimed at increasing the understanding of Web3 topics in the MENA region. Partnering with an industry leader such as Decrypt Media allows us to provide learners the tools they need to enter the world of blockchain and NFTs, and reinforces our dedication to providing education enlightening today’s most cutting-edge technologies.”
Ilan Hazan, Co-Founder at Decrypt Media said:
"Partnering with the Fananees NFT and Weconn teams allowed Decrypt to create a unique experience for the MENA region, and support our shared mission of promoting education in Web3. This is our first entry point into the region as we seek to expand our media coverage of what may be the next Web3 and digital culture cluster."
Abdullah Al Gharem, Founder of Weconn stated:
"At Weconn, we look forward to onboarding more people to Web3, gaming, and the digital economy through high-quality educational content. This is why we have partnered with Decrypt Media and the Fananees NFT project. Their commitment to creating a positive impact on the region, while working with the local partners, is commendable."
Decrypt U in Arabic is the first-of-its-kind fully-digital Web3 educational experience, and allows users to learn, test, and mint their first NFT (certificate of completion) while reaping additional potential rewards in the process.
