As we reported in April, leading crypto hardware wallet Ledger has partnered with The Sandbox, a popular metaverse platform, to set up an education center in the simulated social world.
At the time, it was just a concept. Now it is a reality. Not only has the Ledger team settled into The Sandbox, but they’ve launched a Minecraft-style school that gamifies cryptocurrency education. Players can learn about blockchain and its dangers, while earning NFTs along the way – and they don’t need a crypto wallet to get started!
Ledger’s Minecraft-style Block School
The Minecraft-inspired education hub is called “School of Block,” a nod to blockchain, a technology that serves as the underlying engine for many crypto assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and NFT.
According to a Ledger representative, School of Block gives players fun challenges that teach them how to protect themselves against the rise of crypto scams. It’s a fun version of education that teaches users how to be “metaverse ready”. Although Web 3.0 is full of innovative protocols that could cause explosive change in our society, the space is also teeming with cybercriminals who take advantage of uninformed users. So, with School of Block, Ledger discovered a fun and interactive way to teach the masses about the dangers of the crypto world.
Along with diving into challenges that improve your crypto knowledge, you’ll experience a series of adventures to earn exclusive NFTs. Sweet!
As mentioned, School of Block is launching The SandBox, a token-powered blockchain-based game called SAND. Users can get SAND from cryptocurrency exchanges like Coinbase (opens in a new tab) – and use it to buy NFTs, including real estate land in the metaverse. Users can trade these simulated lands on OpenSea (an NFT market).
Ledger is no stranger to helping people stay safe in the world of crypto. The company offers popular hardware wallets such as the Ledger Nano S Plus and Ledger Nano X, which allow users to reinforce the proverbial security walls that surround their valuable digital assets.
