Last December, San Francisco-based crypto exchange Coinbase launched Coinbase Earn. Inspired by the acquisition of Earn.com, the section of the website allows users to earn cryptocurrency while learning by completing specific tasks like watching videos.
On Friday, Coinbase revealed that the Earn is now available to investors across 100 different countries, allowing them to “earn their share” of more than $100 million in total rewards.
According to the announcement, Coinbase Earn with Stellar (XLM), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Zcash (ZEC) and 0x (ZRX) is now available internationally, each with unique tasks required to earn free tokens.
Investors from the US, UK, Belgium, Switzerland, Denmark, Ireland, Germany, Iceland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South Korea and Taiwan can now sign up to Coinbase and start earning upon ID verification and meeting Earn eligibility criteria — which includes the “uniqueness of the account,” whatever that means.
“The rationale behind Coinbase Earn is that as we progress from mining cryptocurrency to buying it to earning it, we open up new opportunities for people to learn about blockchain technology,” states Coinbase. “With this international expansion, anyone with a smartphone in a supported country can now earn crypto while they learn about crypto just by setting up a free Coinbase account.”
Coinbase notes that not all international countries are currently qualified, but investors can sign up for a waitlist in the meantime.
