Mundo Crypto, the largest cryptocurrency training academy in Spain and the third largest in Europe, has announced that it has received the prestigious “Crypto Entrepreneur of the Year” award at the “Leaders in Fintech Awards 2022” presented by Entrepreneur Middle East . The event turned out to be a phenomenal evening, honoring the entrepreneurs and companies shaping the future of the fintech industry.
Mani Thawani, founder of Mundo Crypto, has become the first Spanish national to receive a crypto-tech award in the Middle East. This award recognizes personalities from the private or public sector – those who have led initiatives that have a significant impact on the emerging market of the crypto and blockchain industry, as well as on the financial technology ecosystem in the field of cryptocurrencies.
The “by invitation only” event was organized at Sofitel Dubai, The Palm, by Entrepreneur magazine, which annually recognizes professionals who are driving the future of fintech in the Middle East with innovative fintech solutions, banks digital, e-gov services, insurtech solutions, instrumental e-payment solutions, installment plan platforms, and other remarkable uses of advanced technology. The event brought together the region’s fintech industry leaders, visionaries, CEOs and founders of accomplished and innovative global brands.
“Dubai has welcomed me and my team and plays a key role in the strategic expansion we are leading from Mundo Crypto. I am very grateful to receive this award in this country so important for the industry, where I feel like another citizen. In addition, I am very proud to be the first Spaniard to receive it,” Thawani stressed in his speech at the award ceremony.
Mundo Crypto started as an online academy, and thanks to Thawani’s experience in the online education industry, the company has drastically become the leading online crypto academy for the Spanish-speaking market, generating more of $20 million in training courses by 2021. Thawani said, “I felt compelled to make a change as Mundo Crypto was created with the intention to evolve and become a key part of the mass adoption.”
Today, Thawani’s goal for Mundo Crypto is clear and measurable: to educate 20 million people about blockchain and crypto for free. “The expansion of this business must allow present and future generations to benefit from a more equitable and decentralized economy, based on the notion of freedom in its broadest sense,” Thawani added.
The Mundo Crypto team currently has over 150 employees across offices in the Canary Islands, Madrid and Dubai, with one of their newest ventures being Mundo Crypto News, which has been envisioned as “the first completely Decentralized” which offers the most up-to-date cryptocurrency news. Meanwhile, Mundo Crypto’s blockchain and cryptocurrency educational platform is evolving into a decentralized metaverse to meet the needs of learners looking for a more immersive experience. Learners can use their virtual reality (VR) glasses to enter the metaverse with hyper-realistic avatars and chat with other students.
Last month, Mundo Crypto hosted the world’s largest cryptocurrency event and set a new record by hosting over 7,000 attendees as the biggest event in Spain for the industry. But that’s not all for this prestigious Fintech company, Thawani says that “by 2023, our medium-term goal is to educate five million people worldwide, become the largest crypto community in the world and to have the metaverse servers ready for mass adoption by this community.”
Mundo Crypto is building the largest crypto community in the world. With over 200,000 people, the company is the largest Spanish-speaking crypto community and is starting to expand into other languages this year. Mundo Crypto has a significant advantage over the competition in this area, as most competitors are focused on creating their products and lack community. Thanks to the expertise of the team, they can devote more than 60% of their efforts to building a larger community, while creating their products. The community is what they treasure the most.
