January was a very eventful and productive month for us - we participated in many high-profile events and also got recognized by many major organizations and media. This is exciting news because it pushes us forward with a lot more enthusiasm and determination towards our main goal - the alpha release. We are advancing faster than expected and planning to release it in late March. Stay tuned for updates!
Our team members - Jordan, Momchil, Hristian and Vladi - got the wonderful opportunity to attend a few events and conferences - Legal Chains of Blockchain, Bett Show, London Blockchain Week 2018, Blockchain Connect Conference and NEO DevCon.
Right after New Year’s Eve we took part in Legal Chains of Blockchain, discussing the legal and tax issues of cryptocurrencies. We took the occasion to present our project, the legal problems we’ve struggled with on the way and about our cryptocurrency, the EDU token.
Our Project Lead, Hristian Daskalov, attended some of the biggest January events in the United Kingdom. He was at Bett Show, a popular conference for followers of education technology and London Blockchain Week 2018, UK’s leading conference on Blockchain technology and its impact on the industry. Both are events held in London where we received a lot of positive response and widened our reach. At Bett Show we got in touch with many key stakeholders from the field of Academia and exchanged numerous ideas.
We turn our attention to the USA with Blockchain Connect Conference and NEO DevCon. They are Blockchain events held in San Francisco which bring together thousands of scientists, entrepreneurs, investors and developers from all around the world. What’s exciting is that NEO DevCon was entirely sponsored by AdEx — a successful Bulgarian ICO with a potential for collaboration ahead.
There, we acquainted many Blockchain enthusiasts and experts with how we would solve the problem of today’s education and how we would revolutionize it with OS University. We managed to attract a great audience which supports our idea and we formed a lot of significant bonds with many influential figures.
We got a lot of positive feedback and to top it all we got in touch with many potential partners from Asian countries. We hope to soon expand our audience and project across the Asian markets and collaborate towards a better future for the world’s education.
Apart from all the events, we also got the exciting opportunity to be recognized by Observer among the TOP 5 Edtech start-ups which would disrupt education and the learning industry.
We also got recognized by DisruptorDaily as an ICO which would greatly disrupt education. They highlighted OS University as a platform which would fill the gap between traditional classroom-based education and its online counterparts.
ICO Market Data didn’t miss the opportunity to rate OS University and gave us an astonishing 5/5 rating! They acknowledged our market potential as exceptional and our team as solid and committed.
Advisors and Global Ambassadors
Apart from the wide recognition we’ve been receiving, we also expanded the team with high-profile and highly experienced experts. We welcome Borislav Iliev on our team as an official advisor! Borislav is a technology enthusiast who has been observing cryptocurrency markets and Blockchain technologies since 2013. He currently works as a project and media manager in a marketing and consulting company for crypto projects, ICOs, startups and many more.
With the expansion of the project on a global stage, our team is expanding as well. Our global ambassadors are proven professionals, experts in their field, who are joining us to be OS University representatives on-the-ground — in their respective universities, industries, communities, including some with a solid background in Blockchain exchanges. Currently we are arranging things and we are looking forward to welcoming them on our team of experts!
The OS University community has grown a lot for a month! At the end of January, our Twitter account has 500+ followers. Our Telegram community has also gained around 200 newcomers for a month. We have a lot more likes on Facebook. We are pleased to see that people are interested in what we’re doing!
