There is an awareness of blockchain, cryptocurrency, and web3 but people don’t know what to do with it and don’t know how to use it.
Many people that buy into cryptocurrency do not know too much about blockchain and web3 and then don’t know where to go to learn more.
Fuelled by open-source development allowing for deployment of products in a fraction of time, the rate of innovation in the web3 and blockchain space continues to accelerate.
Innovation has been so fast, yet quality training required to produce anything bar developers and cryptocurrency trader is not easily accessible and available. Education and training are key to adoption.
Those with the skills are being snapped up by Fintech, and others wanting to get in on the industry. This is leading to a shortage of skilled resources that should feed the adoption cycle as we move from Early adopters to Early Majority.
This skill shortage has left development teams with no business teams putting strain on the demand for partnerships and slowing down ecosystem growth.
The current user base and those with Web3 literate skills are spread too thin and need to grow rapidly to sustain the growth of development.
Adoption can’t come fast enough.
Build a community of educated talented web3 professionals and advocates. Through education and network growth, we will accelerate the rate of adoption in line with the speed of innovation by equipping people with the skills needed to become the marketing innovators, entrepreneurs, and business innovators that will take Web3 to mass adoption.
It is our mission to accelerate the adoption of Web3, Blockchain, and Cryptocurrency Technology.
By providing quality education, we aim to create a Web3 literate community of innovators, entrepreneurs, professionals, and end-users ready to navigate, build on and champion the new economy and a decentralized future.
We will provide World Class Training & a community for innovators, entrepreneurs, professionals, Cryptocurrency enthusiasts, and end-users.

The course has core content, delivered as prerecorded videos, articles, and curated content. This content is self-study and will remain rather consistent for each block of students. It is from the Live sessions that Harmony will benefit most from. In each section of the track, we hold two live classes and these will be case studies, demonstrations, and talks on the weekly topic, showcasing the Harmony Ecosystem. This way, not only will Harmony as a blockchain be showcased but also Dapps and other services built on top of Harmony.
Harmony will be listed as a partner on our website, and certificates of completion will be co-branded with the Harmony logo.
The live presentation/lecture classes will be recorded and made available for students in all subsequent blocks, the community, Youtube, and other media outlets. With a reach of 10,000 in year one alone.
ABlockofCrypto is more than just an Expert track, but also a community. Our ethos is not only about learning, but also networking and community. We believe community is key and we believe we can always learn from our peers. We will also share Harmony-related content, quizzes, and tasks within the community. Our community is open to more than just our students, which will help gain more exposure and hopefully accelerate the growth of the user based on Harmony.
During the term of the partnership, Harmony and the Harmony Ecosystem will also be featured in other educational events such as webinars focusing on introducing traditional businesses to web3 and other free outreach events we run.
In early December we sent out a notification to a small contacts list with a signup page for the first block of students to begin on Feb 22. Within 1 day 246 people had registered their interest. With current staffing levels, we can only accommodate a max of 200 Students per block.
In terms of course production, we are still working on the core material, with complete reviews to be complete by mid-Jan.
Our website is also almost ready, we are just waiting for our custom domain to be moved and some content to be added to our blog. We will then open our community and start revving up our efforts to excite students for the beginning of the first block.
We plan on educating 1000 students within the next 12 months directly in the track. In order to do this, we will have to hire further educators and facilitators so we can reach all time zones.
we plan on reaching 10,000 in total students via other media, short courses, webinars, and educational outreaches.
Our first block of students will have 200 learners with 4 Instructors/Facilitators. With the additional staff, we will increase the block size without impacting the quality or experience of learning with us. We hope to have multiple blocks running at a time.
It would be fantastic to get some Harmony experts and developers of Dapps and services to work with us on the weekly live classes. These need to be tailored in advance.
$1,200,000 over 12 - 18 months ($1200 per student)
50% per unique student on commencement of Expert track ($600 per student @ 200 students per block)
50% per student on completion of the track, therefore if a student does not complete the expert track, the second installment is not due.
A new track will commence every second month or based on demand/staffing levels.
The first track commencing on Feb 22.
Hi, my name is Paula and I thought it only right to give you some personal background as a partnership is an investment and most often, investments are about the people behind them.
The greatest gift I was given by my parents was the gift of Education. Born and raised in Ireland, I was lucky enough to go to college and study Applied Science. To do this, my parents had to sacrifice a lot as they needed to pay not only my college fee but also my accommodation and living expenses away from home. It must have been an awful kick in the face for them at first when I could not get a job in my field of study.
But having the ability to learn, and the enjoyment of college made me like education, and I would now consider myself a lifelong learner.
After my initial bout of education, I did not let the job situation get me down. It was not long before I switched fields and by profession and I have been a CPA accountant for many years.
In 2007 on the birth of my first child, I gave up my well-paid desk job to create a suite of e-learning courses on CD-ROM and start a home-based business on web2. These courses were aimed at accountants and professionals wishing to upskill in Microsoft Excel and Spreadsheets. E-learning was not even a thing.
In 2010 Udemy launched, killing the CD ROM market for education, making it impossible to compete with content delivered online. As Udemy was growing so fast I jumped on board and happily earned income from my online courses. However, in 2016 Udemy changed its policy. Instructor revenues got slashed and as instructors, we had no option but to comply or leave and try and complete alone.
In search of a fairer way for content creators in 2016, I turned to blockchain and have been an advocate for Web3 and the creator economy ever since. In 2018, pioneering the way for content creators, I tokenized my website and blog, offering Learn and Earn Activities for students. In 2020 when the world went into lockdown, I gathered the world’s greatest Excel Instructors and award winners, and we released a course raising $15K for charity. In 2020 and 2021 I won the Microsoft MVP award for my continued community involvement.
If anyone would like to hop onto a quick video call to find out more and talk with me directly, just let me know and we will hook up.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for change/improvement to this proposal, please do comment below or send me a DM. I am looking forward to engaging with you all.
