(SI Newswire) MONCTON, NB – Cryptocurrencies are in the limelight of the mainstream public, thanks to the recent rise of Bitcoin. The value of investing in cryptocurrencies is undeniable, but more than that, they have the power to fuel innovative ideas and reforms in various fields.

EdCoin aims to modernize school systems around the world by making computer science education accessible to every student. The demand for ICT professionals increases in proportion to our ever-growing reliance on technology, yet there is a digital skills gap between graduates and employers.

By implementing a comprehensive computer science curriculum for Grades K-12, EdCoin would enable students to graduate high school with the equivalent of a computer science degree. Furthermore, EdCoin requires zero teacher training to make this possible.

To undertake this ambitious goal, EdCoin is calling on the cryptocurrency community by announcing its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) of EDX tokens.

A minimum investment of 1000 tokens (120 USD or 0.1 ETH as of January 2018) per sponsor will cover the cost of providing 1 student with free access to the EdCoin Platform for 1 year. Parents who invest will receive 10% more tokens if they purchase 25,000 tokens and 5% more for 15,000 tokens. These tokens can be used to fund fees at post-secondary institutions for their children in the future.

EdCoin will issue 336.6 million tokens during the ICO, which is 57% of a total of 660 million tokens. Early birds will receive 30% extra tokens on top of their purchase. Invite a friend and each of you will receive 10% more tokens.

Key Dates:

15 January 2018: Early-Bird Pre-Sale (30% bonus tokens) 22 January 2018: Public Pre-Sale (20% bonus tokens) 29 January 2018: Token Sale Starts (10% bonus tokens) 5 February 2018: Token Sale Ends (5% bonus tokens)
