ODEM.IO is collaborating with Origin Protocol to create the world’s first On-Demand Education Marketplace
Chiasso, Switzerland - 01–24–2018 — ODEM.IO is collaborating with Origin Protocol to create the world’s first On-Demand Education Marketplace.
ODEM.IO and Origin Protocol will work together to enable development of the ODEM platform by using the Ethereum blockchain and the InterPlanetary Filing System (IPFS) protocol.
“We’re delighted to welcome Origin, a global leader in the technology of disrupting traditional marketplaces, to the ODEM.IO project,” said Richard Maaghul, ODEM.IO’s chief executive officer. “I’m excited about creating a secure, efficient blockchain ecosystem that promises to make higher-quality education more accessible and affordable.”
ODEM.IO, in conjunction with Excelorators Inc., is creating an interactive platform to empower students to engage top academics around the world to create high-quality onsite educational experiences. The ODEM.IO platform uses blockchain technology and artificial intelligence to organize and deliver live academic experiences that have traditionally been plagued by inefficiencies and high costs.
Origin Protocol’s platform is a sharing-economy marketplace that enables buyers and sellers of fractional-use goods and services such as home-sharing and car-sharing to interact on the distributed Web without costly traditional intermediaries.
“ODEM is a great example of a project that is trying to create a more fair and open marketplace for education access,” Josh Fraser, an Origin Protocol co-founder, said. “We’re very excited that ODEM has decided to build on the Origin Platform and we look forward to collaborating with ODEM and its team.”
ODEM.IO’s development team is excited to move forward with San Francisco-based Origin Protocol, a company backed by Pantera Capital and other experienced blockchain investors.
The ODEM.IO platform, which aspires to become the Airbnb of international education, will launch its public crowdsale on Feb. 17, 2018. KYC verification is now open at ODEM.IO.
