A proof-of-concept phase was initiated, along with corporate partners from Bulgarian industry and software development sectors, resulting in early versions of system's architecture and design.

Our aim is to address significant problems for businesses, learners and educational system as it is now by introducing our distributed application platform which solve problems like scalability, shortage of candidates with education and experience corresponding to business needs, rarely measure employee engagement, puur candidate experience, existence of recruitment organizations and job finding platforms playing as middlemen between candidates and businesses etc.Blockchain technology gives us the opportunity to store candidate’s certification results which will make them trustworthy and easy for automatic distribution to all businesses and organizations.
Starting with more than 7000 massive open online courses, and a pool of 60 million learners across the world, our solution has the potential to reach up to 3 billion Internet users.
Expertise in the fields of software development, blockchain & cryptography give us the confidence in creating distributed application platform that will be superior to all educational institutions, businesses, student and longlive learners around the world.
