Binance Labs Fuels Web3 Education Revolution with $3.15M Investment in Open Campus

Binance Labs, the dynamic venture capital and incubation powerhouse behind Binance, is spearheading a transformative journey into the future of education. It has recently solidified its commitment by making an investment worth $3.15 million in Open Campus, an avant-garde Web3 education platform.

This initiative is set to redefine the educational landscape by breaking away from conventional norms. It tokenizes educational content and provides content creators with a gateway to monetize their invaluable contributions.

Unveiling Web3’s Gateway: Open Campus

Open Campus stands as a robust and scalable infrastructure, beckoning a diverse array of adopters, from schools to edtech pioneers among other renowned players. Positioned as a global gateway, Open Campus aspires to draw in millions of educational content creators and learners to create a vibrant ecosystem within the Web3 space.

A groundbreaking facet in all these is the introduction of Publisher NFTs, an innovation that not only empowers Web3 enthusiasts to support creators but also enables them to share in the revenue generated.

Behind the scenes, the earnings generated from content creators are securely stored in smart contracts. Co-owners, having contributed to the platform’s richness, can seamlessly withdraw their share. Additionally, the Marketplace adds an additional layer of dynamism that allows the trade of Publisher NFTs.

Yi He, the Co-Founder of Binance and Head of Binance Labs, envisions Open Campus as a catalyst for elevating the production of high-quality educational content. In a recent speech, he passionately stated, “Open Campus applies Web3 tokenomics and technology to revolutionize the creation of educational content.” He emphasized Binance Labs’ active pursuit and investment in visionary projects like Open Campus, recognizing the education sector as a linchpin for propelling Web3 user adoption.

TinyTap’s Role in the Evolution

TinyTap, a distinguished associate company of Animoca Brands and a trailblazer in the EdTech sector, proudly claims its spot as the inaugural adopter of Open Campus. Acknowledged for its excellence, TinyTap has solidified its position as a premier kids’ mobile app, achieving Top 10 status on both the App Store and Google Play, with an expansive user base exceeding 10 million families.

This collaboration sparks a powerful initiative, combining forces with Open Campus to launch a climate change initiative alongside Care Bears, featuring educational content and Publisher NFTs.

Yat Siu, Co-Founder of Animoca Brands and a council member of Open Campus emphasizes the core mission of decentralizing education and championing innovative support for educators. Siu expresses gratitude for Binance Labs’ involvement, foreseeing it as a catalyst for onboarding educators and content creators worldwide, enabling them to tokenize content through Open Campus.

Open Campus extends its impact beyond content creation, introducing Smart Donations powered by its native token, $EDU. This unique feature enables grants and scholarships released on measurable on-chain events. The platform recently unveiled the Global Educators Fund, a $10 million initiative in collaboration with Animoca Brands.

Focused on empowering educators, this fund provides a compelling incentive for content creation on Open Campus, where courses undergo tokenization as Publisher NFTs, ensuring educators possess genuine ownership of their content.
