Open Source University - The World's Academic & Career Development Ledger

Facebook | Medium | Telegram Announcements Channel | Telegram Discussion Group | Youtube |  Twitter | Github | Reddit







Crowdfunding Starts On
November 20th, 14:00 UTC
Ends on December 31th




WHAT IS OPEN SOURCE UNIVERSITY

Open Source University is a unique global platform built on the Ethereum blockchain to bridge the gaps in an educational market, worth trillions of dollars. OS.University is the future of learning and career development.




MISSION AND VISION

Our aim is to address significant problems for businesses, learners and educational system as it is now by introducing our distributed application platform which solve problems like scalability, shortage of candidates with education and experience corresponding to business needs, rarely measure employee engagement, pооr candidate experience, existence of recruitment organizations and job finding platforms playing as middlemen between candidates and businesses etc.

Blockchain technology gives us the opportunity to store candidate’s certification results which will make them trustworthy and easy for automatic distribution to all businesses and organizations.



EDU TOKEN

Within the Open Source University ecosystem, our token (EDU) will be used to facilitate the connections in the educational system between Business, Learners and Academia (MOOCs and other learning opportunities).

Everyone who uses EDU Tokens will benefit from 0% platform fees, while transactions with other crypto currencies will be charged with commissions for using the platform. Part of that commission is converted to EDU tokens and burned immediately. As a result the value of the EDU token grows. The more transactions go through the system - the higher the token price. EDU tokens are limited to 48,000,000 and are sold through a crowdsale campaign. The funds that are raised will accelerate platform’s development.



WHO IS OPEN SOURCE UNIVERSITY FOR

Business will benefit from shaping candidates/employees expertise and from directly approaching their learning and development needs in a distributed manner. All “men in the middle” will be excluded from the picture, thus reducing business expenses, reducing lead-time, and increasing expertise accuracy.

Academia will benefit from scaling their audience (hence the economy of scale), gaining competitive advantage through modernization and automation of operations, combined with customization of the educational experience.

Learners will benefit from receiving higher quality education (adequate to the needs of economy) and from directly approaching employers when it comes to matching the expectations with the individual learning and development profiles - all done directly through the Ethereum blockchain (without a middle-man).
Certifications will automatically be written into the blockchain, cutting the bureaucracy and allowing all stakeholders to focus on the important aspects of life and business.
Any personal information of the parties involved will be stored in an encrypted & secure way.



TOKEN SALE TERMS

This crowdfunding event starts on November 20th, 14:00 UTC and will end on December 31st 12:00 UTC, unless a hard cap of 44, 000 ETH is reached before that.



Once the pre-sale event has ended, tokens would be immediately transferrable. The tokens are build on the ERC20 standard.

Token prices:
EDU tokens will be sold on two rounds - pre-sale and token sale. The six weeks pre-sale starts with the price of 1 ETH = 1,350 EDU. It ends when an amount of 2.6 million tokens is reached. The second part of the pre-sale will consist of 2.2 million tokens at the price of 1 ETH = 1,200 EDU.

In H1 2018 with the stable alpha version release of OSUni platform, the Second Token sale round starts.





BOUNTY CAMPAIGN

There will be 960,000 EDU Tokens reserved for the bounty program:

  30% of the Tokens     30% of the Tokens     20% of the Tokens     20% of the Tokens  
will be given for Media Publications

will be given for Facebook Bounty
will be given for Twitter bounty

Open Source University looks very interesting and I can see its relevance in this modern time. As a student myself I can see the value in being able to connect to the world’s best academic education as well as to professional development opportunities. When businesses are able to have access to a database of candidates with the right education or learning, skills, and experience that will certainly help with the costs that recruitment and training entails. That makes it easier and efficient for businesses to hire people who are right for the job. I hope the best for this project dev and to your team!

Your hard cap is around $130 million. How can you justify this huge cost? If we calculate with the 50% as you claimed in your post, $65 million is still more than Facebook needed to raise when they had more than 12 million user and the company already been valued for over $1 billion (2006) ... So why do you need this amount of money?

@Fonix, the hard cap is actually around $13 million at the current price of Ether. We are aiming to raise 44 000 ETH.

Yes, we do have KYC procedure, which is handled by Parity PICOPS. Only whitelisted addresses will be able to participate in the coin offering. We want to be fully compliant to KYC & AML regulations.
The procedure is pretty straightforward and is described in this blog post: https://medium.com/@opensourceuni/edu-token-whitelist-is-open-for-registration-d2b052ebe38d

It takes less than 10 minutes to complete it.

Your project is sure to be confused with another project, Educoin, as it already use the EDU ticker symbol.

Hey, @envist, OS.University is a decentralized platform to provide an industry-standard way for learners to keep track of their verified credentials, as well as to find the best learning & career development opportunities by getting connected to Academia and businesses.

We are the first to practically implement the concept of a "global credentials wallet" and a "global learning ledger", working on the project since early 2015, but we are not the only ones when it comes to application of the blockchain for various educational purposes. So, indeed, there are other cryptocurrencies as the one you mentioned, but their use-cases are far more limited. From what I read (we've done our preliminary research) this other edu-coin would serve only as a tool to buy and sell crypto-course offerings from a single content vendor, and not as a mean of exchange in a global decentralized educational marketplace.

So yes, similarities stat and end with the name itself the same way similarities in ticker symbols of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, can be confusing. Once we approach the moment of listing on the first cryptocurrency exchanges in H1 2018, we will pick a unique ticker symbol to represent the ''EDU Token", but also to avoid confusion with other "EDU"-projects. We will also trademark it, the same way all open source projects protect their brand symbols.

This is something that is in our roadmap. But never the less, thanks for giving me the opportunity to underline it.

Best,
Hristian

Thanks for the positive feedback, @baxupota

Do I understand you correctly that by asking "Has someone made through the certification process?", you refer to the whitelisting process?  If so, then yes - we have more than 200 whitelisted members already. The process is pretty straight forward and is run though the "Open Source University" site [https://os.university/whitelist/] by Parity PICOPS and Onfido (leading US-based verification company).

Please let me know if you have any questions, regarding the process.

Thanks!
Hristian

In your article on the medium it says this:
"Our tweets and retweets must be posted in the bounty campaign thread every week."
"List your posts and reposts in the bounty campaign thread every week."
But I cant find the bounty thread.
In addition, in the registration form there is a point "proof link". What should I put in there?
