Change is all we can be sure of as a fundamental part of modern life. It is within change and the willingness for this to take place where true growth can occur. As the great Albert Einstein once said; ‘the measure of intelligence is the ability to change’.
Cryptocurrency is evolving and developing to reach a wider audience whilst growing with its current valued cohort. This, in turn will create more opportunities to use this technology when engaging in online education, whether it be paying for online tutoring or courses from the main providers.
What is Ethereum?
Thanks to the power of modern communication we can create technologies that are decentralised, removing the ‘middle-person’ to allow users to place bets directly as part of a global, fundamentally secure network.
In 2008 Satoshi Nakomoto invented blockchain primarily as the public transaction ledger of the cryptocurrency; Bitcoin. As we know this is a decentralised currency, where you can place bets securely and quickly on our site. It’s International with no borders, charges and carries only negligible fees.
Ethereum, according to inventor; Vitalik Buterin is an application specifically designed for these types of decentralised applications or ‘dapps’ for short.
By using Ethereum, as well as Bitcoin to pay for your education online, you can learn with confidence as it’s a fully transparent and trustworthy because it runs on blockchain. This allows you to maintain control of your own data and learning with assurance.
