We are establishing BitDegree on a solid ground of 29 million existing user base of Hostinger and 000webhost - loyal, web passionate, learning and open to innovation worldwide community. "Our vision at Hostinger is to enable millions of people around the globe to unlock the power of Internet by empowering them to learn, create and grow independently regardless of racial, social and geo statuses."
Universities and higher education institutions are universally failing to fulfil their mission - to teach their students well. The gap between the needs of employers and student knowledge already exists and is widening. BitDegree innovation is a possibility for businesses to initiate and maintain dialogue with upcoming talent and reward them for achievements through smart-incentives. From the student’s perspective it means getting paid to learn.
It is estimated that the global recruitment market is worth over $200 billion and $4,000 is the average amount spent by a U.S. company to fill an open position. Tech companies are actively competing to constantly raise and maintain their employer profiles, offering perks unimaginable to other industries. Our solution here is to provide global employer branding to millions of BitDegree students by sponsoring smart-incentives.
With a traditional client acquisition model, tech companies like Hostinger, DigitalOcean or NordVPN spend huge amounts of money to acquire new customers. By accepting decentralized BitDegree tokens, they will be able to attract new flow of technophile users in a cost-effective way. Students who earned scholarships are qualified customers with a proven interest in learning technology & will to spend on various products & services.
The popularity of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) has been growing steadily since their first appearance. This resulted in more and more courses offered every year. The amount of MOOCs should continue to grow due to increasing demand.
Coursera and CodeCademy together are worth more than $1 billion today. However, even these frontrunners face abysmal course completion results – only 5%. The BitDegree platform’s innovation is the possibility for business to initiate and maintain dialogue with upcoming talent and reward them for achievements through smart-incentives. From the student’s perspective it means - getting paid to learn.
Tech jobs are on the rise and these in-demand jobs are going to grow that way for many more years to come.
01. Companies as Sponsors are the main fuel for a sustainable BitDegree economy. The economic incentive for Sponsors to buy BitDegree tokens is recruiting tech talents, enhancing employer branding and advertising.
02. BitDegree tokens can be used for creating smart-incentives as scholarships for students’ educational accomplishments, which can be used for getting various digital services offered by third parties on their platforms in exchange for tokens.
03. Sponsors as well as students will be able to exchange and redeem their tokens in wide network of industry partners or swap them for digital goods and services. The potential of BitDegree Token demand is closely aligned with the gargantuan $200 billion recruitment industry. Limited supply of tokens ensures a growing demand for BitDegree platform’s services in the foreseen future.
BitDegree token is utility token. We are based in Lithuania, Europe, (LLC Company) and have an official confirmation from Lithuanian Bank regarding ICO.
