Crypto.com has joined forces with the Lebron James Family Foundation to bring the students of Ohio the best in Web3 education. Akron, Ohio is the athlete’s hometown.

This is a multi-year deal, and though the details aren’t disclosed at this point in time, it certainly means Crypto.com will both financially support the foundations I PROMISE program, and develop Web3-specific content for any students that would like to get a head-start on the nascent blockchain industry.

James made a statement on the matter, saying “Blockchain technology is revolutionizing our economy, sports and entertainment, the art world, and how we engage with one another. I want to ensure that communities like the one I come from are not left behind.”

Right now, the foundation invests in over 1,600 disadvantaged students in the Akron area, and provides them with training, resources, and even mentoring to help raise graduation rates in the city.

A total of 1,100 of the foundation’s students are currently enrolled in the I PROMISE program, providing a class of third-grade students with tips on topics pertaining to personal health, motivation, socializing, and academics.

Crypto.com and Lebron James’ worlds have collided before, too. In November, the crypto exchange paid $700 million for the naming rights to Lakers’ home arena named The Staples Center, for 20 years. Now, the stadium is called the Crypto.com arena.
