https://www.bitdegree.org - BitDegree is the world's first blockchain-powered online education platform with token scholarships & tech talent acquisition.
It's always nice to put faces to places, so welcome to BitDegree HQ! Here you can see behind the scenes of what we are doing in the final days before our token sale on December 1st. Our host and CEO, Andrius Putna, is joined by the hard-working BitDegree team, plus two of our major advisors, EA Co-Founder Jeff Burton, and Former Coursera Senior Manager Roberto Santana who will help the BitDegree team fulfil its mission of reinventing education through incentivized learning and blockchain!
Andrius Putna: Hello, I'm Andrius. I'm the CEO of BitDegree!
BitDegree is a blockchain-powered, online educational platform with tech talent acquisition and token scholarships. The BitDegree token will connect students, instructors, and employers in an equally beneficial way.
We believe that education has to be accessible for everyone. Our vision is to connect learners who want to study, instructors who can teach, and employers who want to hire tech talent. For the transparency of the platform, decentralization is a must.
A user base of over 29 million, an MVP, and world-class advisors, will be giving students the opportunity to earn while they learn.
The success of Hostinger, the company behind the world's biggest free web hosting brand, assembled the core BitDegree team who is building an educational change. It's gonna be beautiful, and it's gonna be huge!
Jeff Burton: The current education system is caught in the past. The Internet and one of its special characteristics is that it can reach millions of people in ways that speak directly to them, and give them an education that they really need and can use. That's what BitDegree is pursuing, a way of reaching millions of people with the material that they need in order to succeed. It's a new world, and I think that all the elements are there to allow them to really make a difference in the world!
Roberto Santana: For the very first time, you have the system and the possibility of earning while you earn, and earning while you teach others. This just changes everything! The thing that blockchain allows is the co-creation of value, so the more that the community contributes, the more valuable everything becomes so this is a virtual cycle.
