Coinmarketpedia, the world’s first decentralized crypto and blockchain educational platform based in Dubai, has successfully raised $2 million in a pre-seed fundraising round, an achievement gained within four months of operation.

According to the firm, the funds will be leveraged to expand its global footprint and achieve key internal goals by enhancing features, allowing for investments in ecosystem partnerships, onboarding new industry experts, and, most importantly, facilitating the development of its platform globally.

The unique and ingenious digital hub officially launched in the UAE in February 2022 with the mission of further equipping crypto and blockchain enthusiasts and investors with trading and cryptocurrency knowledge, as the company believes in a decentralized world where every individual can achieve an equal economic opportunity through simple education and knowledge sharing.

The platform’s launch was made exclusively available to users on an ‘invite-only basis’, further access to the public was then officially implemented in April 2022.
