Value Application

With efficient learning methodology and Web3 mechanics, we will accelerate the adoption of Aeternity ecosystem for Web2 developers. The result of our partnership will be 1K new builders and creators for Aeternity.

Web3Campus is where the traditional EdTech business model meets Web3 mechanics. Key Web3 mechanics like digital identity protocol, Learn-to-Earn, and Contribute-to-Earn will be built on Aeternity network. This way, the technologies of Aeternity ecosystem will be at the base of ‘Web3-vizing’ the EdTech market.

Definition of Terms

Web3Campus powered by Cointelegraph is an online educational platform for learning Web3 skills and professions. We solve the problems of difficult field immersion and the lack of professionals capable of building innovative products on Web3. Web3Campus builds a safe place to learn in a real-work simulator and engages students through Learn2Earn mechanics.

We kindly requests a $380,000 grant for product and marketing purposes, elaborated in the next sections.

Known Limitations

Ensuring high quality of Contribute2Earn content is our key challenge. One of our platform’s features is encouraging users to create educational materials and share their experiences. Nonetheless, to guarantee their reliability and usefulness, we need to come up with some content-approval mechanics.

æternity paying for build solidity courses? no way :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Thanks for providing your proposal, but I think if you want to create educational courses for æternity developers you should know that smart contracts aren’t built using Solidity language.

Dear @wlada,
Thank you very much for applying. Your application is rejected by AF Board.
