Coinbase Cryptocurrency Exchange has announced that the Coinbase Earn program, which allows you to receive rewards for learning various digital assets, will now be available to residents of more than 100 countries.

Coinbase Earn was launched at the end of 2018 and initially, access to the platform was carried out only by invitation. As part of the pilot version of the program, users were rewarded for learning or passing a cryptocurrency test.

One of the main obstacles preventing people from exploring new digital assets was the lack of knowledge about these assets. Many of the respondents expressed a strong desire to learn about various new cryptocurrencies besides bitcoin, but did not know where to start,” representatives of the exchange said.

Now, program users will be able to receive coins of various projects, such as Stellar (XLM), Zcash (ZEC) and Basic Attention Token (BAT).

In addition, the head of Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, recently said that the custodial service Coinbase Custody had already collected more than $1 billion of assets. It took the service only a year to achieve this mark.
