Ledger, the industry leader in crypto hardware wallets, partnered with The Sandbox, a well-known metaverse platform, to establish an education hub in the simulated social world, as we reported in April.
Back then, it was just an idea. It is now a fact. The Ledger team not only set up shop in The Sandbox, but it also opened a school that teaches cryptocurrency in a Minecraft-style game. Players can learn about the blockchain and its risks while earning NFTs, and they don’t even need a crypto wallet to get started.
Ledger’s “School of Block” is like Minecraft
The name of the educational hub, which was inspired by Minecraft, “School of Block,” is a reference to blockchain technology, which underpins numerous cryptoassets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and NFTs.
A Ledger representative claims that School of Block exposes players to enjoyable trials that educate them how to defend themselves against the escalating crypto scams. Users learn how to be “metaverse ready” using this gamified approach to education.Web 3.0 is teeming with cutting-edge protocols that have the potential to drastically alter our society, but it is also swarming with cybercriminals that prey on uninformed consumers. As a result, Ledger came up with School of Block as a fun, engaging way to inform the general public on the risks associated with the cryptocurrency world.
You’ll embark on a series of adventures to acquire exclusive NFTs in addition to taking on tasks that will sharpen your understanding of crypto.
As previously reported, School of Block will debut in The SandBox, a blockchain-based game powered by the SAND. Users can purchase NFTs, such as plots of real estate in the metaverse, with SAND, which they can obtain from cryptocurrency exchanges like Coinbase. On OpenSea, users can exchange these virtual lands.
Ledger has a history of assisting users with maintaining security in the crypto realm. The business provides well-known hardware wallets like the Ledger Nano S Plus and the Ledger Nano X, allowing customers to strengthen the security perimeters around their priceless digital assets.
