ON THE BALLOT: AIP-278 Aims To Make A Token Gated Web3 Education Platform
This former construction superintendent is looking to build a token-gated platform dubbed Approved Educators, where content creators can publish courses, and participants can learn about Web3 while earning soul-bound NFTs to represent proof of knowledge.
Ape Improvement Proposal 278 titled “Approved Educators, Publish Your Course With Us,” is an ecosystem fund allocation proposal written by ApeCoin DAO Contributor and Approved Educators Founder, GuyMadden.
“We propose an immersive learning environment HOST platform for content creators, educators, and mentors to easily publish their Token Gated courses,” GuyMadden wrote. “To better engage learners and bridge the gap between web2 and web3, we are introducing the Otherside initiative, A way for creators to use Yugalabs Otherside to create interactive courses alongside our traditional PowerPoint curricula.”
GuyMadden believes that his Approved Educators platform will help onboard tons of new people into the Web3 ecosystem and give them the tools to be successful in this space.
“By harnessing the power of blockchain technology, the Protocol facilitates novel forms of collaboration and promotes long-term growth,” GuyMadden wrote in the platform’s Whitepaper. “A modernized, streamlined way of learning that utilizes digital resumes and NON Transferable Soulbound tokens after successfully completing a course. (These SBT's will be used as a résumé or CV's in the blockchain world) Every time you complete a course within our website your SBT metadata will be updated with the current Curricula. Ultimately Approved Educators look to demystify education and create a community-driven initiative for a brighter, more equitable future.”
In total, GuyMadden is asking the ApeCoin DAO to allocate $50,000 USD worth of $Ape to the project so he and his team can finish the platform and integrate $Ape a payment option. The money will also be used to make intact Approved Educators Otherside integration plans once Yuga Labs’ metaverse becomes a reality.
GuyMadden estimates that his Approved Educators platform could be built within 3-5 months of this proposal’s approval.
The window to vote on AIP-278 is currently open and ApeCoin DAO Contributors have between now and next Wednesday, October 4th, to cast their coins and vote on this proposal.
