Tutellus Creates Decentralized Educational Platform Based on Blockchain Technology

  • Tutellus is the first decentralized and collaborative EdTech platform based on blockchain.
  • The project aims to transform teaching and learning for people all around the world.

Tutellus is an educational project with a difference. Ambitious, innovative, and enterprising, its overarching aim is to revolutionize the way we teach and learn.

The idea has been almost five years in the making. Beginning in 2013, the company behind it envisaged the platform as a tool for collaborative education, one that would match students with teachers to create an improved learning experience for all.

It wasn’t until 2017, however, that its founders realized blockchain technology could be of use to them. Decentralizing their model by tokenizing their assets, they adopted the NEM blockchain, using a four-layer model to create a truly one-of-a-kind platform.

The company has been clear in stating that it has no intention of creating a handful of millionaire teachers, but rather aims to make millions of ‘thousanders’ instead, explaining:

“We want to steem our market, to spread the richness in the community, tokenising it.”


The organizaiton is doing this with the TUT token: a 100 percent utility token which can be used alongside their Smart TUT to ensure user relevance. Through the adoption of this model, the company has been able to design a complete tokenomics workflow, which has proven highly popular with students, teachers, and companies alike.

This means that now, just a few short months after its inception, Tutellus has hundreds of thousands of users who are making the most of this blockchain marvel.

The primary goal of the platform remains the same as it always has: to pay individuals for learning. Already the leading EdTech ICO in the Latin regions, they now have their sights set on becoming the biggest of their kind in the world, so they’re able to spread this ethos even further.

For the educational sphere as a whole, this really could prove revolutionary, for as Tutellus states: “the more you learn, the more money you get, and the more relevant you become in the community”. Has there ever been a greater incentive to expand one’s academic horizons than that?
