Nxt Academy fundraising - 79 Nxters donated 578,232 NXT
« on: February 04, 2015, 10:50:56 am »

Ideas
Let’s actively bring Nxt into every university and school all over the world. Every teacher will be able to download and use teaching materials for their students. Everyone will be able to attend free online courses about Nxt from their home. Young people untouched by the cryptocurrencies will be informed about Nxt via: bulletin boards at the school, lectures organized at their school, student projects led at their school… Online Nxt courses will be visible at every educational site with online courses...


Why Nxt Academy?
The world of cryptocurrencies has got a huge enemy – ignorance. The society isn’t ready for wider acceptance of the cryptocurrencies. Nxt is bringing a huge revolution in many industries, but right now it is just a toy for geeks. Nxt Academy is going to prepare the society for the Nxt crypto revolution by providing teaching materials.

Strategy
Direct marketing to Students – education
Nxt Academy isn’t only a passive website with videos and texts. It actively propagates Nxt at schools, universities or student festivals. Nxt Academy will be targeting all bigger Universities and sending its materials to their students. Students will be working on team projects with their classmates, while Nxters will be mentoring them. They could join international research teams, apply for Nxt Academy grants or Theses of the year. Teachers will be receiving teaching materials, infographics, textbooks and worksheets for children, so they could teach even young kids about Nxt. It will be easy to download all sources, printed materials will be sent to the schools or handed out after the speeches / lectures at the schools and universities.

Online Marketing and Cooperation
All content created by the Nxt Academy will be actively distributed to the other similar projects – Khan Academy, Coursera, Coin Academy,  College Cryptocurrency Network… It’s about spreading the knowledge, so Nxt Academy will try to have its courses at all of those sites and many others.

Nxt Academy will be targeting people untouched by the cryptocurrencies at various online platforms (such as Freebieservers). Nxt Academy provides press releases, news, blog posts, Twitter/Facebook/Weibo posts, forum posts, videos at multiple platforms… SEO, online marketing etc.

Translations are planned for Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, French and Czech.

Research
Nxt Academy will be supporting the crypto research. Database of the research/students papers will be very helpful for all cryptocurrency researchers. This side project will create a library with crypto-related articles saved at multiple platforms. With enough funds, Nxt Academy could provide student scholarships, grants or awards. The dream goal is to have a crypto theses of the year contest during the Nxt Academy conference.

Teaching - Online courses and textbooks
Before entering the Universities or Student festivals, Nxt Academy needs to prepare the teaching materials.

Online courses
Easy-to-use platform for everyone who will be able to learn about Nxt, its ecosystem, its ideas, its abilities. New fresh videos and edited videos will be followed by chosen articles and infographics.

Textbooks
If we want to get cryptocurrencies and Nxt into the mainstream, we need to prepare educational materials for teachers. Textbooks will be created by a cooperation with university professors and school teachers.

Worksheets
Even children should have a chance to learn about the cryptocurrencies. We need to prepare the world for this new revolution. Worksheets, educational programs for children will be prepared by a cooperation with the school teachers.

Infographics
Social media campaigns need well prepared infographics to reach the biggest audience.

What is Nxt Academy?
Nxt Academy is a non-profit organisation which focuses on free education of the students and children. Nxt Academy isn’t a commercial project, so its existence, form and size depends on donations from the Nxt community.

Nxt Academy Crowd funding:
Nxt Academy is a first project using completely decentralized Crowd funding via Nxt Monetary System:

Code: ACDMY
Name: NxtAcademy
Activation: block 370,000 (cca 1st March)
500,000 NXT need to be raised during February in order to successfully finish this crowd funding campaign. Details and questions: https://nxtforum.org/nxt-academy/

How to donate:

Now you can donate NXT to Nxt Academy only directly, Nxt Academy account: NXT-W4FQ-JGAE-JHS9-3PMNR

thanks :)

update after 48 hours:
43,400 NXT were pledged by 15 users, 2400 NXT in last 24 hours

5 users are signed up for the online courses, colin will be probably the first teacher, he is planning his own course there.

I am posting some news here: https://nxtforum.org/nxt-academy/

Anyway, funding doesn't look well, it looks like only if you issue assets and promise some dividends (and pay them back in years or never), you get the funds.

actually you have a great project and you have done loads for nxt, i would 100% support you but you should understand that we are all in a bear market and probably most of us are in big losses. when we are in loss we are more of a tight arse when it comes to donation, i know i am because im in debt now. Once i get back again i will surely donate generously.

if you try this again later on when nxt is back to $50mil market, you will see difference in the generosity.

Damn, this is right for the time. If you get any gabbing about that 'unfair distribution' ax-grind, feel free to use an analogy I've used at Bitcointalk: does anyone care now that the Facebook IPO was botched? They did for a time - FB fell to $20-$25 after its debut - but now?? Anyone, except ax-grinders sharpening their grudge?

Hey, what about doing a webinar?, its a great idea, I know a company that can get you lots of students to attend for fairly cheap.

I will be reserving some Academy coins once my blockchain finishes downloading lol.

Great Iniciative!

thank you, everyone! :)

21 Nxters already pledged 88,600 NXT (200 NXT were sent directly to NXT-W4FQ-JGAE-JHS9-3PMNR). We have got new highest reserver: 20,000 NXT came today from one account. But we are still missing our precious whales :) This will be thrilling. If you have any other questions, just ask.


vinotinto:
Yes, webinars are planned, a) for student projects at the Universities (actually we are just planning one webinar with students from currently running project (cointelegraph.com/news/112863/nxt-brings-cryptocurrency-to-czech-university-curriculum).

Another solution is to have a webinar open to everyone. I attended all courses of "University of Nicosia - Master’s Degree Program in Digital Currency Offered Online and On-Campus" and now I am attending "Princeton University - BTC-Tech: Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies Online course" (will start in few days). They always got huge media attention. Nicosia course had 670 students, this is nice too. I will definitely use their know how or methodology

Something similar could be very interesting, for example webinars with our devs, marketers... this is why Nxt Academy is asking for funds, so it could afford to pay for the teachers :)

All things first, 1) online video courses, 2) online live-webinars-video courses

This is a great example for MS crowdfunding. Best of all, it benefits NXT as a whole. This could be huge if it is a success. BUMP BUMP BUMP

We need to use the term MS Crowdfunding more, that's much easier to understand than Reserves in Montetary System and other difficult stuff.

After one week we reached the 100,000 wall, funding was at 111,000 NXT today.

During first 7 days, 111,300 NXT were pledged, 200 NXT directly, 111,100 NXT by Monetary System.

30 Nxters decided to support the project by their donations, the most generous were 5x10,000 and 1x20,000 NXT.

I am glad there are many friends who understand how important and useful this campaign could be, however it looks like it won't be possible without the support of larger holders

i think its very sad that only 30 NXTers support this great project
come on. just send 1000 NXT. you spend more money every week for other stupid things!
we need support of the masses. not support of 10 big stakeholders all the time. they are donating enough to every project
