EkoLance is launching a 6-week course for people seeking a career in the blockchain ecosystem as a content creator.
The official start date of the course is the 22nd of November, 2022 and the application deadline is the 15th of November, 2022. The sessions take place every Tuesday at 7PM WAT.
Why this training is important?
Blockchain is still a relatively novel and young concept considering technology in general. Its applications are limitless and is multisectoral and cross functional. Blockchain technology isn’t just changing the way that money is traded over the Web, it is also poised to impact how people create and share content on social media in general.
A blockchain content creator is responsible for creating and executing content strategy across all social media platforms. Much of the growth that cryptocurrencies have experienced can be attributed directly to successfull social media strategies. Twitter is the most influential platform for the web3 ecosystem and most people read about current affairs in the space on twitter even more than from newspapers.
In the blockchain space high quality content is still rare. If you are someone, who understands the concepts of blockchain and can write high quality content adressing relevant social media platforms and blockchain communities, you can become sucessful very quickly.
A Cointelegraph research shows that financial investments within the blockchain sector have increased in the past year over 300% from 4.4 billion USD in Q1 2021 to 14.6 billion USD in Q1 2022, which is evidence that more companies will be looking to expand their blockchain teams.
EkoLance is leveraging on this growth opportunity and providing structured web3 training for the new blockchain skills and professions. We equip professionals to join the workforce in the blockchain ecosystem.
The training will take place in the course of 6 weeks. Every week the participants will learn some technical as well as soft skills required for the job as content creator. The participants will be able to practice their newly learned skills during the weekly assignments. The table below describes the agenda of the content creator training.
