About[edit]

Academy represents a new education pathway, custom-built to service the Blockchain industry. Our purpose is to educate and train the next generation of Blockchain developers, to enable them to build the infrastructure of tomorrow's economic model - cryptocurrency. 

Blockchain development is one of the fastest growing and most understaffed sectors of industry in 2017. For every Blockchain developer, there are 14 industry jobs available. With the industry predicted to grow 16 fold in the next five years, this resource problem is only going to become more acute.

A regulated, agile and strategic curriculum that produces the developers the industry needs. And strategic partnerships with real Blockchain companies to place emerging developers into their dream jobs.

Academy is SCORM compliant, giving us the ability to syndicate our digital learning systems to other tech universities across the globe. We're a SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) accredited institution, eligible to receive both title 4 and title 9 Federal Government funding.

Learn in your own style, at your own pace. Choose from our selection of bootcamps, online courses, executive masterclasses, conferences, and developer workshops. Our intuitive digital infrastructure makes it easy to manage your studies, seek help, and progress wherever you are.

This is one of the very few "game-changer" ICOs on the market. The shortage of developers is something that has to be solved for the entire blockchain space to thrive.

Pros:
-- International Accreditation from SACS
-- Strong Transparent Team
-- World-Class Advisors - literally best I've seen
-- Established SaaS education platform and curriculum
-- Monetization of the Academy token
-- Extensive / Detailed Whitepaper
-- Generating revenues from clients on the platform

Cons:
-- Limited Social presence

Academy is teaching students now with the first "graduates" available for hire later this month (March 2018)

The accreditation from SACS-CASI and the SCORM compliance for the online system will allow Academy to grow revenue from corporate clients in addition to start-ups.
