VC Animoca Brands along with TinyTap have announced they will be launching publisher NFTs for educators, parents, and learners. The auction for these limited edition collectibles will begin on December 15, 2022, for 48 hours on OpenSea.
According to the official press release, these publisher NFs will allow educators to upload their curriculum and other educational content as collectibles on blockchain. Parents will be able to view this stuff and know what their child is being educated with.
TinyTap seems to be exploring the utility of NFTs beyond digital art or avatars by introducing the publisher NFTs.
Since this technology is built upon smart contracts, it will make storage easier, and also help other fellow educators a chance to explore different educational curricula around the world.
“Our aim with this project is to empower educators to build their own equity and accrue value, similar to how NFTs are already revolutionizing other fields,” said Yat Siu, the chairman of AB.
In fact, Animoca Brands acquired TinyTap in hopes to promote NFTs in the education sector and help teachers create revenue through their work. Siu also shared that teachers have earned double their yearly salary through NFTs.
The auction of Publisher NFT on Dec 15 is the second round of sales on OpenSea. The first round called “TinyCourses” generated 152 ETH, which is around $200,513.
TinyTap CEO Yogev Shelly says these NFTs are more than just a medium of income, it’s a proper ecosystem that connects teachers, experts, and parents around the world on one platform.
