The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have launched a private testing of the private blockchain and “quasi-cryptocurrency” called Learning Coin, which has no real value and is not a classic cryptocurrency. According to the Financial Times, this cryptocurrency is available only to employees of the IMF and the World Bank and serves exclusively educational purposes, involving the study of the possibilities of the blockchain and digital assets. Employees will need to use a specially created application for studying materials on digital currencies in the form of lectures, video and audio. For certain stages of learning, they will receive digital assets, which will later be allowed to redeem.
