Job Description

Details


Needs to hire 3 Freelancers

The blockchain technology enables new ways of monetizing certain markets. Companies who seem to be no “traditional” blockchain companies start thinking of building on that technology and developing new ways of collaboration. One example is the Messenger platform Kik who just recently introduced their cryptocurrency Kin: https://kin.kik.com/Kin%20Whitepaper%20v1.pdf Kik is a huge chatting platform that is used by many students between the age of 10 and 18.

Education is also starting to get more attraction from blockchain based ideas, one prominent example are certificates and badges for example.

A more general article about new ideas in education can be found here: http://er.educause.edu/articles/2017/3/the-blockchain-revolution-and-higher-education

What is the task?
– Assume you have a platform that is being used by many K-12 students (10-18 yr) who use it freely for asking questions regarding their homework and/or knowledge questions. Tutors and other students give answers and get a small reward. What kind of cryptocurrency model could be sustainable and innovative to monetize that target group? Is it something like Kin or something else?

-The first task would be to summarize the findings/ideas on a one-pager. If we think it is interesting enough we can further elaborate on that.

Job Types: Freelance.
