Matthew interviews Danielius Stasiulis, co-founder of BitDegree.
We discuss the ever-present topic of education, and the possibility of disrupting and bringing its cost down via the blockchain. This is the second show on Crypto Voices covering a project on Ethereum that has leveraged an ICO. We start by discussing Danielius's business background in Lithuania and Eastern Europe, and why he decided to get into the blockchain space. We cover a variety of interesting facets about business in CEE, such as the lack of venture capital funding (ever, since fall of the Soviet Union), and why Lithuanians are leading the charge in ICOs. We discuss the warming to blockchain that is occurring for regulators in Lithuania, and why Danielius believes they are thinking critically on the potential of the technology for their local economy. Danielius informs that BitDegree is the first approved ICO/utility token in Lithuania, and likely in Europe outside of the major markets (Switzerland, Gibraltar, etc.). We then turn to education, and why Danielius believes the incentive structure offered by tokens can disrupt the old trade and bring its cost down for students. We look at some of the token economics, and how it fits together with learners, educators, and businesses. We discuss the costs of education around the world, and how this new model could be a breakthrough in delivering skills to unskilled workers. We explore some of the business relationships between BitDegree's founders, its foundation, and coinholders. Last but not least, Danielius informs and invites everyone to their Block Forum conference in Vilnius, 14-17 June.
