Comprehensive List of Learning Metaverses and Learn&Earn Platforms cover image

But, stronger EdTech names are already building exciting Learn&Earn integrated web3 platforms — BitDegree alone has more than 1M users. And more advanced and complex solutions will be introduced for people seeking practical education.
