Problem Statement:

There is a great interest among developers to transition from web2 to web3 but lack of curated content resulting in a higher drop rate(as per our research it’s more than 80% of developers dropping off in the first month itself) of developers who wanted to start their journey in web3. The unsegmented content available is only adding to the problem.


We will create a course for teaching the development of Harmony. We will use avatar-based editing along with user-friendly visuals to create an attractive onboarding solution into the ecosystem. We will host the course on our application which has more than 100K users along with the push through our offline centers for onboarding new developers into the ecosystem.

This course will provide an easy and user-friendly onboarding solution for anyone who is interested in blockchain development. We will leverage our wider user base for the promotions along with reach through our partner network and official govt partnerships.
