As crypto adoption continues to grow in the country, top cryptocurrency traders have seen it fit to form a group that will enhance the nation’s overall financial literacy.

The Innovative Movement of the Philippine Association of Crypto Traders (IMPACT) aims to provide a comprehensive and structured approach to educating individuals about the ever-changing cryptocurrency scene. They also aim to build an informed community to combat crypto-related scams.

Arlone “Paul” Abello, CEO of Global Miranda Miner Group (GMMG) and Web3 learning platform Elite University and FEASTGold, spearheads IMPACT as its Executive Director and Founding Chair.

The founding members include Jiro Reyes, CEO of edutech firm Bitskwela; Atty. Clarizel King, a corporate, technology, securities, health, and property law expert; Steve Jimenez, community manager of decentralized multi-chain order book exchange ZKEX.com; Riki Dacanay, an entrepreneur and blockchain tech investor; and Gilbert Lazaro, a stock and crypto market analyst.

“The Philippines Association of Crypto Traders is formed to equip individuals with the knowledge and understanding of cryptocurrencies and their vast potential. We strive to be the leading authority in the Philippines, providing reliable and unbiased information on crypto trading, use cases, and emerging trends,” Abello said.

The association has also announced a partnership with the Junior Confederation of Finance Associations Philippines (JCFAP), the national umbrella organization for associations of college students in finance or financial management.

Through the “CrypTalk: University Caravan,” which was initiated by GMMG, the IMPACT founders will visit higher education institutions across the Philippines to teach finance students about the fundamentals of cryptocurrency, blockchain, and Web3, and promote ethical behavior and responsible participation in the decentralized web and cryptocurrency ecosystem.

IMPACT is open to collaborations to create internships and job placement opportunities for aspiring students. Organizations and universities looking to partner with the group can send their inquiry here
