More than 72 million children of primary education age are not in school and 759 million adults are illiterate and do not have the awareness necessary to improve both their living conditions and those of their children. So many young people in third world communities lie awake at night, dreaming of traveling to the places they have seen in the movies, places in the US, Europe and other parts of the world. Yet, education remains a dream for them.
The challenge for educators is to lay the correct foundation for an infinitely scalable education system. If they are able to achieve this, the cost of education will be greatly reduced (online degrees can be up to 80 times less expensive than traditional degrees), and even allow students to earn as they learn. This is Mitch Rankin’s fervent wish and with the recent Collaboration Agreement between English Forward and Bank of Holders, this wish was seemingly granted.
The Collaboration Agreement was signed by Darshan Bathija, CEO of Bank of Hodlers and Mitch Rankin, CEO of English Forward Limited. There is high hope that collaboration can have a tremendous impact on both their short-term and long-term growth. Without a doubt, the synergy between the two companies can ensure greater productivity through cross-promotion of the individual businesses to their growing databases.
EnglishForward.com has developed from a discussion forum and into the internet’s largest learn English Q&A site, with over 250 million unique visitors, hundreds of thousands of registered members, and 2 million question+answer threads. Blockchain modernizes English Forward’s technology, allows for new creative tools implementation, and brings in transparency and authority, while also enabling all contributors and volunteers to earn “crypto tokens” for their support.
Bank of Hodlers, on the other hand, offers a smooth user-experience platform which opens up opportunities to earn interest or borrow money at joiner’s discretion without having the need to liquidate crypto holdings. One can get low-interest loans against his cryptocurrencies as they will be treated as a separate asset class. Financial services are offered to ensure technologies based on blockchain are usable today, negating the need for government acceptance to disrupt the banking sector.
It’s a GIFT for those wishing for a better life…
The collaboration will not only benefit both platform communities but also be of value to each other as they grow in the blockchain space. Both organizations have come to a mutual understanding to develop a direct integration between English Forward & Bank of Hodlers blockchain platforms to provide learning and earning opportunities to both communities, not only as borrowers but as lenders.
The agreement also binds both the organizations to promote the collaborative efforts through their respective platform, community and outreach opportunities to ensure better participation to both programs. Led by individuals with complementary skills, the collaboration welds diverse talents that when combined create an explosion of creativity and productivity.
