Edgecoin is the world’s first education token. Built on the Ethereum blockchain, this addresses current problems with the multi-billion-dollar education and e-learning industry; using its exclusive and innovative B2B approach.
They plan to move past the outdated education system that currently exists and its certification and approval process. It is aiming to go back to square one with the system and rejuvenate the current dusty educational system, bringing it up to the times using blockchain technology. They want to achieve a decentralized education system that is relevant to modern times.
Using smart contracts for a better education!
Customers and educators (such as universities, colleges, teachers, consultants, companies and many more) can get valid, encrypted and unique certificates via Edgecoin smart contracts, all in a straightforward process. Students using Edgecoin can view and manage their academic development, or even their whole career using their smart contract. Edgecoin provides its ground-breaking technology to students at the beginning of their studies.
It will enable educational institutions to get rid of the heavily documented certification process, replacing it with the paperless, cost-efficient, fast and digital service of Edgecoin technology.
Within the last days and weeks, many prominent advisors have joined Edgecoin which is a tremendous sign for a great future. Dr. Andrey Vorokov, the founder of the supercomputer SONM on the Ethereum blockchain, Technopreneur Dr. Walter Tonetto and Anders Larsson, one of the Top 5 Blockchain advisors worldwide, among many others joined the team and will support Edgecoin in a variety of ways.
What’s next for Edgecoin?
Currently, the Edgecoin ICO is live and running. While looking for investors, the team is already building BaaS partnerships with educational institutions globally (they have already had Northstar College, Audiobrain, Grammar School Limassol and many more).
In Q2 2018, Edgecoin will show the first use cases to the public, with Edgecoin BaaS real MVPs at educational institutes. Prototypes of many services such as Smart Certificates and Validation Processes are already finished and are currently tested by the dev team.
In Q3 2018, to end their Venus phase, they plan to expand Edgecoin and its’ technologies to more eco-systems and smart governance solutions.
“Imagine the future of education ten years from now on. The entire academic and professional career of every student and later employee is recorded on the blockchain in and by smart contracts. These smart contracts contain all of your skills, qualifications, certificates and also job records. Just one click on your unique smart contract public address authorized by you can provide proof of your skill set for enquiring parties such as public authorities, institutions, employers and so on. No more notarized documents, translations or large PDF’s with all your data”.
