We Re-imagined Bitcoin Technology For Education.


From Pew Internet.org (page 9)

Hal Varian, chief economist for Google, wrote, “The biggest impact on the world will be universal
access to all human knowledge. The smartest person in the world currently could well be stuck
behind a plow in India or China. Enabling that person — and the millions like him or her — will
have a profound impact on the development of the human race. Cheap mobile devices will be
available worldwide, and educational tools like the Khan Academy will be available to everyone.
This will have a huge impact on literacy and numeracy and will lead to a more informed and more
educated world population.”

INFORMATION
EduCoin (EDU) is a cryptocurrency, based on bitcoin’s pioneering technology, that helps us pay for education in ways we could never have imagined before. Education is rapidly evolving online, across devices and platforms, and even at the schools we attend. We need a digital currency that can help students, educators, and third parties make secure transactions without fees, rates, or long approval times. EduCoin aims to be the worldwide standard for student transactions in the learning economy.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Who is the developer?
A: Satoshi Edumoto. Please call him edumoto.

Q: Why so anonymous?
A: Partly as an homage to Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of bitcoin. We see him as the creator of EduCoin. Secondly, we want to keep everyone's attention on EduCoin's development and adoption. Too many developers have cracked due to the pressures of public life. Just look at Flappy Bird (the game, not the coin).

Q: Who is the development team?
A: We are a team of three. Our growth plan is to identify and recruit members from higher learning institutions in order to bring more transparency, longevity, and growth to EduCoin. Researchers, edutech companies, computer science post-docs, university leaders, we know you're out there. Please get in touch. Let's build a consortium.  

Q: Are you the same as Educoin seen in the startup here?
A: No. EduCoin (EDU) is a fully de-centralized cryptocurrency based off of Bitcoin.  EduCoin (EDU) can be traded on exchanges between world currencies and it can be used as a means of exchange. EduCoin merchants will also be able to exchange EduCoin through an increasing array of apps and services as it gains widespread adoption.

Q: Was this coin pre-mined?
A: No. It was not pre-mined. It was publicly announced and launched fairly.

Q: Is this just another clone altcoin?
A: Yes and no. Most new cryptocurrencies, with very few exceptions, are derivatives of the original bitcoin source aiming to compete or replace it. EduCoin was developed with education in mind.  The technology was a fork of Litecoin/Dogecoin/Rabbit, incorporating the latest developments in cryptocurrency technology such as the Kimoto Gravity Well algorithm. As such, cryptocurrency is in its infancy and we are more concerned about where EduCoin can go rather than where we came from.

Q: Why not use Bitcoin for education?
A: Bitcoin and EduCoin can co-exist together. EduCoin can be further customized for use in specific educational settings and contexts, whereas Bitcoin maintains its role as a general use cryptocurrency.



COMMUNITY
We hope EduCoin forms a distinct and vibrant community and we cordially invite you to join us as an early adopter, developer, researcher, or contributor.  Go to our main forum at http://forum.educoin.cc/.  We especially welcome participation from any or all of the following groups:

DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP

•   University Merchant Adoption
•   University Tuition Payments
•   MOOC Adoption
•   Testing Services Fees (SAT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT, …)

So EDU has nothing to do with education apart from the name?  There's no new proof-of-work developed to reward education? (such allowing people to solve simple maths problems or submit exam papers marked by a network of qualified teachers or something).  It's just the name EDU, that's all this coin has, it's just another clone coin with no new development.
