ExtraCredit — The Worlds First Cryptocurrency dedicated to the Education of Blockchain Technology
In my everyday life I meet more and more people who are asking about cryptocurrencies, or blockchain, or how it all works together, how it influence the whole world? And even more people don’t ask those questions just because they are afraid they won’t understand it all. For some people everything new, especially technologies, is scary in some way so they just won’t touch it. But the crypto world is developing and growing with a huge speed and we better know about it in details soonner than later to be part of it and develop together with a blockchain world.
And guess what?! ExtraCredit is this very project which will give us opportunity to learn about it, put away our fears and become a part of the blockchain magic world.
Crypto world is growing, righ? More and more new ICOs are coming on the crypto fild. But how many experts do we have? Is it enough? Of course — not!
Lack of experts create a big demand of them. And our universities don’t teach it. ExtraCredit gives opportunyti to become one of them. Isn’t awesome?
There are many industries that benefit from the potentials of blockchain technology are(just some of them):
• The banking industry
• Election management
• Supply chain management
• Logistics and the Internet of Things (IoT)
• Public archival
WHY THE WORLD TRUST BOCKCHAIN SYSTEM?
Transparency. The possibility of sharing and transparency of actions can’t but attract the large commercial and government organizations tired of the “shadow” party of business.
Reliability. It is almost impossible to change or forge the records entered in the register a blockchain. This circumstance considerably reduces the probability of fraud and strengthens confidence in the authenticity of data.
Lack of a human factor. As I have already mentioned in the first point, a peer algorithm of reaching consensus, record, and verification of transactions happen is transparent also without the involvement of the third, fourth, fifth and tenth parties. It helps to avoid undesirable mistakes, additional expenses, and the general working difficulties.
Interaction. Thanks to a blockchain, completion of one operation can automatically start initialization of others. It allows different participants to be involved without excess risk in transactions with multiple dependencies or in the transactions started by other parties;
Safety. The system a blockchain ensures safety and confidentiality of transactions for 100%. It is reached by basing it on the protocol which uses cryptography system with open and closed by keys. Participants can create open public registers or the controlled closed blockchains, use of which will be limited to a certain circle of people.
Thanks to it, each year scope the blockchain growing like an avalanche: new startups, appear
new technologies, and products on the basis of blockchain are started, even the largest world companies will be connected to a blockchain-race.
So! Let’s take a look at the ExtraCredit platform, and what it is, and what the project offers us!
HOW DOES EXTRA CREDIT WORK?
ExtraCredit is a platform that seeks to solve the lack of skilled talent in the blockchain industry by producing a platform where students of all ages can start learning about cryptocurrency.
The platform works on an incentive basis where there are competitions conducted and students are given the opportunity to earn XTRA tokens when they complete courses or achieve good scores in any of the competitions.
ExtraCredit platform is intended to offer opportunities to people around the world, even a newbie to learn and delve into the wealth of opportunities that come alongside blockchain technology.
Statement of the problem
Despite the apparent importance of blockchain technology, firms are facing a serious problem getting qualifi ed personnel that can work in their firms.
At the moment experts believe that there are only 20,000 blockchain developers with the necessary skills.
Most of Africa and parts of Asia can benefit greatly from blockchain technology, but there is no access to information or knowledge to these parts. This is a global shortage.
Since blockchain technology is a emerging technology, there are no colleges that provide a formal education.
