Our vision is to create an economy for students that is transparent, secure, and direct (peer-to-peer), in an efficient market with lower prices, higher volume and fair profit rewards for community contributors.
Our mission is to provide students with a marketplace that serves their needs, where they’ll be able to receive and provide homework help, exchange course notes, find work, buy and sell books and much more.
We believe that students are the real driving force of the market, and by using blockchain technology we aim to put students at the center of the student economy - giving the power back to the students.
