What is the future of education?

"Imagine the future of education 10 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 klick on your unique smart contract public address authorized by you can provide proof of your skill set for inquiring parties such as public authorities, institutions, employers and so on. No more notarized documents, translations or huge PDFs with all of your data."

Our vision for educational stakeholders

Educational stakeholders and at the same time Edgecoin target customers are: Classic educational institutions, e-learning providers/platforms and independent educational/e-learning advisors and corporate e-learning decision-makers.
Edgecoin wants them all to understand its state-of-the-art educational business approach and how they can benefit from its cost-lowering, time-saving and fraud-protected smart solutions. We build the technology that will revolutionize the education industry as a whole. The vision is the groundbreaking disruption of the dusty and outdated education system and its certification and approval process.

Initial products and use cases

  • Set up smart contracts with our public DApp. Simple interface that can replace complicated agreement processes via smart contracts and digital signatures.
  • Issuance of educational documents on the Blockchain. Validation and re-validation of new and existing documents with integrated optical recognition software.
  • Users pay with Edgecoins on e-learning platforms for courses and other content they have passed or consumed. Edgecoin integrated payment DApp.
  • Users obtain valid, encrypted and unique certificates via Edgecoin smart contracts in just one process.
  • Students can see and manage their academic development or the whole career in their Edgecoin based smart contract (online and/or stored on a secure device) that was provided by their university at the beginning of their studies.
  • Institutions can get rid of their heavy documented certification process by having it all digitalized, organized, governed and issued by fully integrated Edgecoin technology.

It's all that in one token. Because there are no limitations when it comes to tokens built on blockchain technology. Initially Edgecoin was designed as an alternative payment method or altcoin for e-learning platforms such as coursera.com or raiseyouredge.com. But the versatility of blockchain can push it beyond the usage as a currency only.
Given this perspective you can buy and sell Edgecoin (EST) as an asset class within your financial portfolio to diversify it even more. Just imagine having an asset class which is barely regulated but by the original market forces "Supply and Demand". This means more volatility compared to ETFs, Equities or the general stock market in itself but a higher volatility can result in much bigger winnings as the past months and years of cryptocurrencies demonstrated.
Furthermore Edge aims to bring more independence, transparence and decenteralization to e-learning itself. While e-learning becomes more and more popular, the certification remains an issue as there is no guideline that is accepted by all companies, countries and institutions. Finishing a course on a platform currently gives you a certificate for said topic, but does not provide any value outside the website. Missing translations, varying topics and many other issues play a huge factor in this.

What is crypto trading and can I trade Edgecoin?

Yes, you can! If you are a more advanced cryptocurrency enthusiast you may have noticed that there are different established currencies such as BTC, ETH, LTC and so on. These big cryptocurrencies already skyrocketed in the past months and years and therefore they're not affordable for beginners. The high prices force you to put more money in your invests which increases the risk of losing it all once more. But there are other and better options in the booming market: Investing in fast growing cryptos such as Edgecoin can be a smart strategic move. You buy bigger numbers of Edge at low price and leave them for some months. This way you get ahead of the market so you can just enjoy the bullish times while other buyers have to pay more and more for the same coin. If you still believe in the big players, you can always transfer your Edge coins into Bitcoins and other currencies. This way you can save money by letting Edge do the fund raiser job for you.
