Revolutionizing Education with Blockchain

BitDegree platform will offer students the best online courses with clear and transparent blockchain-based reward system and achievement tracking. It is also a unique tool for businesses to recruit tech talent and shape global education to their needs. Think about it as Coursera and HackerRank merged together, powered by decentralized blockchain technology.

336,600,000 BDG(Abt $22,500,000) raised. BitDegree platform will offer students the best online courses with clear and transparent blockchain-based reward system and achievement tracking. It is also a unique tool for businesses to recruit tech talent and shape global education to their needs.Think about it as Coursera and HackerRank merged together, powered by decentralized blockchain technology. BitDegree is established on a solid ground of 29 million existing user base of Hostinger and 000webhost - loyal, web passionate, learning and open to innovation worldwide community.BitDegree Learning Foundation will revolutionize education by creating a new token that can be exchanged among the users of the platform: Students, Sponsors, and third parties. Companies as Sponsors are the main fuel for a sustainable BitDegree economy. The economic incentive for Sponsors to buy BitDegree tokens is recruiting tech talents, enhancing employer branding and advertising.BitDegree tokens can be used for creating smart-incentives as scholarships for students’ educational accomplishments, which can be used for getting various digital services offered by third parties on their platforms in exchange for tokens.Sponsors as well as students will be able to exchange and redeem their tokens in wide network of industry partners or swap them for digital goods and services. The potential of BitDegree Token demand is closely aligned with the gargantuan $200 billion recruitment industry. Limited supply of tokens ensures a growing demand for BitDegree platform’s services in the foreseen future. How does the project create value to the ecosystem and differs from competing projects BitDegree takes learning to a new, interactive model that is particularly enticing to today's workers. By using an Octalysis framework of gamification design, going through the process of educating oneself is as simple and exciting as playing a fun video game. The inclusion of smart incentives and interactive learning will allow BitDegree to solve the problem of the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) industry's low 5 percent completion rate. Traditional education is broken and outdated, yet the Bitdegree platform reaches beyond borders and any traditional limitations to create an experience unlike any other. Through this process, companies can introduce learners to new technology and fill learning gaps within their own workforces. BitDegree will stand out from present MOOCs due to blockchain advantages with smart incentives, gamification and decentralization.

About BitDegree The conventional centralized higher education system takes 4-6 years to educate a person and there is no guarantee of employment afterwards. We believe that the digital industry today lacks workforce because higher education institutions are not responding to the needs of actual labor market. Most of the skills needed by the digital industry don’t even require a degree in higher education. Workforce that has practical digital economy skills and willingness to learn is needed. That is why today more and more tech-savvy teens get freelancing jobs and earn more than their parents do. BitDegree is world’s first blockchain-powered, smart-incentives based online education platform which will revolutionize global education and tech recruiting. The main purpose of the BitDegree platform is to let Students acquire skills that are currently required by the labor market. The way to do it is not to ask business what skills they need in the far future (3-5 years), but to respond to explicitly expressed skilled labor demand quickly. BitDegree will directly align the incentives of students and anyone who wants them to become knowledge workers in digital economy - like current or potential employers, digital service providers and sponsors. Smart-incentive is a smart contract on Ethereum network ensuring the exchange of tokens between a sponsor (the Incentive Creator) and a student (the Incentive Taker), who is committing to study a specific subject in order to receive tokens (the Incentive). The BitDegree platform will offer students online courses with a clear and transparent blockchain-based reward system and achievement tracking. Our use case for blockchain is not sensitive to prolonged waiting periods before transactions are committed, thus, overall platform overhead (as in expenses) of using Ethereum network for transactional and immutable data storage needs, will be low. To make the learning process as exciting as playing Minecraft we will use Octalysis framework of gamification design. We see BitDegree as a unique tool for business to recruit tech talent and shape global education to its needs through smart-incentives. National government Job centers will be able to track the demand of skills without having to involve scrupulous report gatherings from businesses and also help jobless citizens by subsidising studies for skills on high demand. Think about it as Coursera and HackerRank merged together, powered by blockchain technology. The main benefit of BitDegree platform to incentive providers is the possibility to initiate and maintain dialogue with upcoming talent and reward them for achievements through smart-incentives. Smart-incentives on the BitDegree platform will range from small to large and be location and topic targeted. From the student’s perspective, it means getting paid to learn new skills based on local demand, which not only incentivizes but can actually be a viable escape from unskilled work. Building quality, interactive, and engaging learning experience is essential to every successful education platform. There are attempts to solve the problem: i.e. Coursera and CodeCademy. Despite the fact that these frontrunners face abysmal course completion results, similar to the entire MOOCs industry – just 5%, these two companies together are worth more than $1 billion today. Our proposed incentive alignment approach was not tried in any of educational platforms we are aware of. A merit based rewards, currently practiced in existing platforms, does not substitute income needed to support a student while studying. We will be pursuing our vision to go forward with the development of BitDegree platform even in case of unsuccessful ICO. We anticipate a closed testing, involving incentive providers in [2018Q3] and open launch of BitDegree in [2019Q1]. The capital available to the development of the platform will determine functionality and choice of the course material available. The anticipated capital raised during ICO, will enable us to directly compete with existing education platforms even prior to the benefits reaped by the popularity of BitDegree platform. Companies creating technologies used in digital economy should consider contributing to development of the platform, and ensure technologies they create are represented in the course material available to millions of students
