World’s first Decentralized Autonomous Learning Organization

This model is fundamentally designed to provide accountability, proof-of-learning, and affordable education to people across the globe.

Decentralized Autonomous Organization

  • DAO is a cryptocurrency community with a resilient governance and funding model that puts decision making in the hands of masternode owners and uses a proposal platform to decide on community investment priorities.
  • Community members can make proposals for funding from a treasury replenished with a percentage of each mined block.
  • Masternode holders vote on which proposals to fund and have a strong incentive to select projects which will strengthen the community as they also receive a large percentage of each mined block.

Decentralized Autonomous Learning Organization

  • The DALO’s vast democratic network of masternodes vote on fiscal, oversight, and executive issues to uphold platform integrity and growth.
  • Through Atheneum’s unique, educational track of content, Atheneum First-Class (AFC), instructors may submit proposals to the DALO for funding and approved courses will be branded as AFC content.
  • The DALO is responsible for ratifying third-party partnerships to grow the Atheneum Marketplace.
