Coinbase wants to send you to online cryptocurrency school - and pay you to do it!

Back in April we covered the story of Coinbase purchasing Earn.com for over $100 million (link) and today they've announced an entirely new way they plan to use it.

Originally, Earn revolved around a mobile app that allows users to earn cryptocurrency as a reward when they complete a survey, join a website, read an sponsors e-mail, etc - basically advertisers can use the app and pay people for participating in a variety of ways.

Today CoinBase announced their new plan for it - people can study up on the cryptocurrencies they support, and get rewarded for it.

Coinbase explains "Coinbase Earn allows users to earn cryptocurrencies, while learning about them in a simple and engaging way. The idea is for users to understand more about an asset’s utility and its underlying technology, while getting a bit of the asset to try out."

Currently, there is only 1 of these 'lessons' about cryptocurrency on the site now, this one is about 0x and comes in the form of three 2 minute videos.

There's a lot of coins today and more coming, this really could be a great way to motivate people to look into something they otherwise wouldn't have taken the time to.

You can take a look at the 0x CoinBase Earn lessons here.
