Back to news
Four students of Stirling Management School have scooped prizes in a unique competition – with crypto currencies as the reward.
The announcement comes as Stirling Management School, part of the University of Stirling, announces a new crypto video course on digital currencies and technologies, in association with crypto wallet provider Yamgo.
Carelle Siona Djuissi Nana (first place), Shyam Govindarajan (second place) and Vinod Banglore Venkatesha and Chisanga Ng’Andu (joint third place) won prizes in the form of HBAR crypto currency ranging in value from USD 50 equivalent to USD 300 equivalent. They also win a place on the new course, which features video lessons on the emerging world of digital currencies and the technologies behind them.
The collaboration emerged from a 2022 Stirling Management School student competition offered to the Risk Management in Banking student cohort and sponsored by Yamgo. By signing up for a free Yamgo account, students will gain access to the course, which includes a series of engaging video lessons. Upon completion, participants will be required to answer questions based on the content.
As an added incentive, Yamgo is offering rewards in the form of Hedera HBAR cryptocurrency to students who answer the questions correctly. This unique approach not only encourages learning but also introduces students to the practical use of digital assets.
In an increasingly digital world, it is essential to equip the next generation with the knowledge and skills required to navigate the complex landscape of digital currencies and blockchain technology.
Markus Krebsz, Honorary Professor at the University of Stirling, experienced risk specialist and also a NED at Yamgo, said: ”I am excited to join forces with Yamgo on this new educational initiative. In an increasingly digital world, it is essential to equip the next generation with the knowledge and skills required to navigate the complex landscape of digital currencies and blockchain technology. This collaboration is an excellent opportunity to combine our expertise with Yamgo's passion for making cryptocurrencies more accessible, and I am confident that together, we will drive positive change and foster innovation in the crypto space.”
Yamgo CEO Ian Mullins said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Professor Markus Krebsz and the University of Stirling on this pioneering crypto education initiative. Our mission has always been to make the world of digital currencies more accessible and easier to understand. The rewarded video section of our app has always been very popular and it is a great way for brands to connect with a new audience, but we've always envisioned it being about more than just advertising. This partnership exemplifies our commitment to empowering the next generation of crypto enthusiasts by fostering knowledge and cultivating thought leadership in the space. ”
