NFTs are coming to the e-learning sector
Flare, a blockchain network renowned for its interoperability, has teamed up with Uppercent, a tech-focused education startup, to unveil a cutting-edge NFT-powered e-learning platform.
Flare and Uppercent team up to shake up e-learning
The platform aims to provide an exceptional e-learning experience, utilizing NFTs as the admission tickets. The instructors encompass a diverse range of fields, including prominent social media personalities, business coaches, and experts on personal development, as well as young entrepreneurs under 30 listed on Forbes. Topics covered will range from essential vocational skills such as entrepreneurship, social media management, and personal growth.
The rollout of the platform will occur in stages, with the initial course offerings and instructors to be revealed in late March. During the first phase, students will have the ability to sign up and enroll in the forthcoming courses. The full launch of the platform later in the year will facilitate the purchase and sale of NFTs, providing access to the courses.
Uppercent has devised a marketplace that embraces an inclusive approach to education, striving to establish a flourishing secondary market for admission tickets. The platform aims to elevate the worth of both learners and educators, offering a novel perspective on e-learning and revolutionizing online education.
The Uppercent platform will offer a gathering place for individuals seeking self-improvement and a hub for exchanging knowledge and gaining access to courses. Before its official launch, anyone who joins the project’s Discord community will be eligible for free membership to Uppercent.
Flare and Uppercent: Match made in heaven
Flare, a Layer 1 blockchain, has been engineered to empower developers to create applications that leverage information from various chains and the internet. With secure, scalable, and decentralized access to reliable data, Flare opens up new possibilities for use cases and revenue streams.
Hugo Philion, CEO of Flare, expressed his eagerness regarding the collaboration with Uppercent and stated that Flare aims to be the blockchain technology that powers the web3 functionality of the latest edtech products.

The CEO of Uppercent, Jake Lee, expressed his elation regarding the partnership with Flare and the potential it holds. He highlighted the significance of Flare’s State Connector and interoperability protocols in establishing the first-ever secondary market for e-learning.

NFTs in the education sector: Untapped potential
NFTs are rapidly becoming a crucial aspect of our daily lives and have left a profound impact across various industries, including education. The integration of blockchain technology into educational systems may soon become a game-changer for what is one of the most important aspects of any modern society: education.
Several initiatives are exploring the potential of NFTs in education. One such example is the Publisher NFTs created through a partnership between Animoca Brands and Tinytap. These tokenized learning materials, which include educational games and interactive coursework created by teachers, aim to advance the web3 strategy of both companies with the goal of enhancing teachers’ earning potential. So far, this NFT has made the learning experience effortless and provided a generous remuneration for teachers’ content.
