Previously, Coinbase declared the program at the end of 2018 as an invite-only initiative. The pilot period allows users to earn Crypto by learning about the ERC-20 token "Ox" (ZRX). Coinbase said as per the Survey they conducted, uneducated users, were reluctant to invest in crypto but were eager to learn:
“...one of the biggest barriers preventing people from exploring a new digital asset was a lack of knowledge about that asset. Many of the people we surveyed expressed a strong desire to begin learning about new and different crypto assets beyond Bitcoin, but didn’t know where to begin.”
This project is not only beneficial to the users but also to the asset issuers. As asset issuers will be able to use the system to test out their blockchain projects and getting them informed about how to make use of their project or cryptocurrency.
