Lisk Grant Program: Wave 2 – introducing DoEdu and ColectiNFT
At Lisk, we strive to support and incentivize developers and blockchain enthusiasts in building valuable blockchain applications for the Lisk Ecosystem. Our easy and accessible SDK, the HackOnLisk hackathons, as well as the Lisk Grant Program (with 1,200,000 CHF funding in total) – are all intended to bolster and facilitate creativity and entrepreneurship. The end goal is clear – the creation of exciting blockchain solutions that we can all benefit from!
So after the success of the Wave 1 of our Grant Program, we are proud to announce the next startups that will receive our support and funding through set milestones. Let’s take a look at:
- DoEdu – a blockchain-based educational platform
- ColectiNFT – an NFT marketplace
All of course powered by Lisk!
DoEdu – an educational platform built with Lisk SDK
Education is one of the most promising fields for blockchain technology application. This industry is expected to grow by 18,1% by the end of 2027, reaching an astonishing USD 285.2 billion in value. Moreover, as we saw during the COVID-19 pandemic, intuitive and accessible technology solutions are “more than essential” in the education sector.
DoEdu is one of the startups that can benefit the most from the technological revolution in education. It is a blockchain-based educational platform that provides free tools for creating edu-content, sharing storage space, and additional functionalities such as freemium/premium content. It not only enables learners to gain knowledge in an easy and convenient way but also helps content creators to benefit from their educational work. You can check out more details about DoEdu in the blog post about the project.
Don’t forget to check out DoEdu’s website and Twitter! You can also look at channel #doedu on Lisk.chat – our community discord server.
ColectiNFT – a Lisk-based NFT marketplace
A significant spike in NFTs’ popularity established their place in the blockchain world. Therefore, as more and more people want to create their own NFTs and trade them in an easy and accessible way, we need intuitive platforms that’ll enable them to do so. Colecti addresses these issues – it’s a Lisk-based NFT marketplace.
Colecti was created by the Moosty Team from Lisk Center Utrecht. As Raphael, Moosty’s designer states: Colecti combines functions of a basic marketplace – a place where you can buy, sell and create digital collectibles and non-fungible tokens – and additional functionalities such as generating collections of NFTs. Its goal is to become the bridge between all Lisk NFT related blockchain applications.
