The learn-to-earn game seeks to onboard legacy Web2 developers looking to make the move to Web3.
The funding was raised through multichain grants from some big names in the space that include Solana, Flow, Avalanche and Polygon Foundations.
“Blockchain developers are in high demand”, said Raj Gokal, Co-Founder of Solana. “We need to scale impact contributors even faster to keep pace with mainstream demand,” added John Wu, President of Ava Labs.
The details of the grants are as follows:
The grant money will be used to fund rewards and incentivize students to take developer courses and learn new Web3 coding skills.
The majority of the grant will go towards funding financial rewards for over 12,000 Solana, Flow, Avalanche, and Polygon course completions.
Metacrafters students will pay tuition costs in cryptocurrency but will earn back their tuition upon completion plus additional rewards.
The project announced the new funds in a press release on June 10th.
Multichain partnerships and grants of this nature are an uncommon occurrence in the space. With varying degrees of interest, bringing together audiences from across different projects is a win for the space. Metacrafters will use the funding to continue improving accessibility to high-quality Web3 education for developers around the globe.
As crypto adoption gains mainstream traction and more people make the leap to work in the space, the technical know-how becomes more prevalent than ever. Learn-to-earn is a unique and interesting take on education and one that could easily see massive adoption.
