In Britain, where inflation is on course to hit 13% amind a cost-of-living squeeze, interest in cryptocurrencies is strong.

Revolut says that the number of transactions Britons made in July alone grew by over 20% compared to the same month last year.

The courses are available to Revolut customers, who can earn up to 15USD in DOT tokens by taking these short and simple courses and passing the final quiz.

‘Crypto Basics‘ is the first of the two courses and helps educate customers on what cryptocurrencies are compared to fiat money; the meaning of a ‘decentralised system’; cryptography; the mechanics of the blockchain technology; and the risks associated with crypto investments.

Revolut’s decision to offer DOT as a reward is a result of a collaboration between Revolut and Polkdaot that was announced at the start of the ‘Learn & Earn’ programme.

With Revolut it is possible to invest in more than 80 cryptocurrencies; all standard clients can trade on the app by placing stop losses and recurring buy features starting from €1.

However, for low commissions, it is more convenient to have a paid plan such as Metal.

Earlier this week, Revolut said it planned to increase its crypto staff by 20 per cent, adding to the 43 crypto-related hires onboarded in 2022 alone.

“We see crypto as a long-term play and remain bullish on the crypto industry,” said Emil Urmanshin, crypto general manager at Revolut.
