Studyum, the edtech brand with ambitious plans to change the face of education, has appointed a leading blockchain and NFT advisor just days after announcing its pre-IDO Whitelist Lottery.
Ian Scarffe is a leading investment and fintech expert. Ian has an impressive record of blockchain, NFT, and Initial Dex Offering consulting services and works for a wide range of multi-million dollar companies.
Speaking of the appointment, Studyum’s CEO, Igor Dyachenko, said: “We’re super-excited that Ian’s come on board and are very much looking forward to integrating his expert knowledge into the team. Part of his mission is to foster economic and intellectual sovereignty. Our shared values are exactly why we’re such an awesome fit.”
Ian Scarffe is also an independent expert advisor to the European Union’s €80 billion Horizon 2020 research & innovation program. The initiative supports breakthroughs, discoveries, and world-firsts, by incubating great ideas from the lab to the market.
Commenting on his appointment to the company’s advisory board, Ian said, “Having been a long-time mentor, I realize how important technology in education is. Combine this with the tech behind Studyum with the growth of the Non-Fungible Token (NFT), and learning can become more interesting and exciting.”
Studyum connects quality learning, teaching, and training, on a level never seen before. Combining AI, facial recognition, and smart-chat, the learning management system will customize students’ needs in real-time. With Studyum, the student decides how and when they want to learn.
The company intends to incorporate NFT gamification for its students. Besides uploading content in 2D or 3D, educators will create unique NFT collectible cards, which students can then buy, trade, and swap.
Studyum’s IDO will launch on the Polkastarter platform on the 23rd of May this year, then on Uniswap on the 31st of May. The closing date for this round is June 13th.
