A real solution to education problems around the globe.
Helping one child at a time giving them the opportunities they deserve
to learn and grow
FEB 14th, 2015
PROBLEM: Public Education is Failing our youth.
PROBLEM: Home educators receive little to no financial help
A vision to help support and empower independent learning, everywhere.
SUMMARY AND VISION
In today’s world of education and learning, large divides and gaps exist. From educational systems that have been reduced to standardized testing, removing the ability to really “teach” and instruct children (instead focusing kids on how to pass an exam), to a lack of support for those parents who have chosen to teach their own children… the system is broken. On top of that budget cuts and program restrictions are removing some of the most vital components to the development of an individual.
Some families (and individuals) have taken it upon themselves to educate, choosing instead to focus on teaching and learning in ways that are vastly different from the public system. Some (albeit very few) schools teach and educate in ways that actually encourage and foster the individual growth, leaving those who “self teach” or “home-educate”...on their own, both from a resources standpoint and financial standpoint.
Cryptocurrency is still in it’s infancy and in that..there are a lot of people who view it (and use it) as a means for selfish gain. However, cyrptocurrenices have also opened up brand new doors and opportunities and have brought people and communities together, building towards something good. Like most things in life, cyptocurrency in itself, is neither good nor bad, HOW it’s used and for WHAT it is used, is up to the individual. It can be used for good, and much good. Of course, with cryptocurrencies...and ones that are solid, stable, and growing, there is an opportunity to create a lot of wealth. What the developers, foundation, and those that posses the coin do with that wealth increase, ultimately, is a big question.
The Foundation (from day one) was established to be a reflection of the coin itself. has always been more than a cryptocurrency. It’s a way of life, and part of the Foundation’s concern has always been “how to give back and help, beyond just freeing people to be able to transact on their own terms.”
Many of the foundation members are parents and have kids of varying ages. As we’ve discussed about the future of Cryptocurrencies, , and how to continue to innovate and build for the next generation, we began to see a common thread: A care and concern for the education of the next generation. The more we brainstormed, the more we agreed that Crypto, and specifically , was poised to be a medium by which education and learning could be provided to those who wanted and deserved to have access to the resources needed.
As Cryptocurrencies are becoming more and more a part of daily life (just like the internet has become), we want to be a resource for anyone (not just kids) to understand cryptocurrencies, what they are are and what they can do.
, and the Foundation plan to:
1) Establish a standard within the Crypto Community where one coin is speaking up to make a difference in the education sector by:
2) Putting our Coin where Our Mouth is.
-Every Foundation Member will donate a percent of current holdings into an Educational Endowment, and the stake (interest) earned will continue to help fund the endowment.
-Every Foundation Member will donate a percentage of their stake rewards for the educational Endowment (Stake For Education… or S4E), forever.
-NETUCATE will establish an endowment to be not only a monetary resource for families, children, and individuals but also begin to open up new doors within the education realms.
-Provide an E-Learning Platform where children and individuals or any age are able to work through various topics, and as they complete tasks, are rewarded after demonstrating their mastery of subjects and topics
-Provide an online store where home educators can obtain supplies and resources they need to help their children's education (goods obtained via NET)
The Wallet will be unveiling an S4E (Stake For Education) Feature.... Every user will have the option (and ability) to donate a percent of their stake rewards to help support children’s education by adding to the NETUCATE Endowment Fund.
The address (S4E) to donate to inside your wallet:nN5MEJR91iCt8B7JJ56V2SCu2hcdTf77Zs
