What is Tutellus?
Tutellus is the biggest online educational collaborative platform in the Spanish-speaking world. We started in May 2013 and now we have a community of 1 million users from 160 countries, with over 130,000 video courses, positioning us as the leading platform in the market
EDUCATION, THE PENDING ISSUE
Learning in an EdTech platform is a hard and expensive process if you want to improve your skills enough to get a job. And you can't make money by doing it: people can not get out of poverty by studying. So we detected four main problems in the Educational sector:
People cannot earn money studying, only spend it. And it's expensive
Students lack motivation, so they leave education behind
Teachers cannot earn money depending on their value
A huge gap exists between employment and education
THE SOLUTION: A PLATFORM THAT PAYS YOU FOR LEARNING
We create our own cryptocurrency, the TUT token. The more you learn, the more money you get, the more relevant you are in the Community and the more visible you become to companies that may be interested in you. Tutellus solves those problems in a very simple way:
Students earn Relevance (and money) learning, without paying
Students gain the motivation to help other users to learn
Teachers get more value with the success of their students
Companies can hire employees with an efficient matching process
HOW THE TOKEN WORKS
An ecosystem where all players get benefits: Students, Teachers and Companies. Using the Scholarship Program and the Market as entry points, students and teachers may study for free and earn money through tokens, get Relevance, and access to valuable services inside the dAPP. Lastly, Companies will be able to hire best profiles with the highest Relevance.
A solid team growing together since 2014, summing up nearly 150 years of working experience and with the following crew
NACHO HONTORIA - Marketing Manager
COVADONGA FERNÁNDEZ - Media Relations
- Innovative dual token mechanism that allows users to choose a short term cash option or longer term relevance option
- Sheer amount of information available was underwhelming
- Massive social media communities with great amount of engagement from the community. Good visibility overall
- Proven and successful history on managing organization
- Hard cap seems a bit too high for investors
- Pretty vague roadmap. Information extends only to early 2019
- Soft cap is informed to be the same as hard cap
Tutellus' innovative dual token model allows students and teachers to choose between cash rewards or "rating" rewards. Latter one allows the student to stand out from the crowd which could be highly beneficial because businesses searching for employees, the most relevant students will be shown first and are more attractive from business perspective.
Social media communities made for the ICO and found on the token sale website are not that impressive, but the existing social media communities dedicated for the actual platform are massive. This could throw some investors off when analyzing projects visibility and community engagement.
The team has already improved the product for over 4 years and the platform has managed to grow quite significantly over that period of time.
We feel that the hard cap could be lower, to make it more attractive as an investment opportunity. Smaller hard caps have proven to be more profitable on average. Soft cap was informed to be exactly the same as hard cap. There are no information available about what happens if the hard cap is not met.
