Nas Academy partners with Invisible College to launch crypto academy for Web3
Just 5 years ago, the world had 5 million social media creators. Today, that number is over 50 million. With this increase also comes the need to train and empower creators to adapt to changing technology and be equipped with skills to thrive. That’s where Nas Academy comes in, an online education platform for the creator economy that empowers creators through technology.
Today, Nas Academy announced it has joined forces with Invisible College to launch the world’s first bundle of courses that can be unlocked with an NFT collection. As part of the launch, more than $2,000 worth of courses will be made available initially, covering topics like NFT investing, Community Building, Video Editing, and Crypto fundamentals.
Starting on September 1st, Invisible College members who hold a Decentralien NFT will be able to unlock more than 18 web3 and creator courses on Nas Academy for free. The growing library features courses from some of the world’s top creators and investors including Zeneca, Nuseir Yassin, and Ben Yu.
Commenting on the launch, Nas Academy CEO Nuseir Yassin said: “Web3 is more than just a compelling topic for courses. We believe NFTs can reinvent the way students consume online education and allow people to own a piece of the internet. That’s why we wanted to partner with a visionary community in the form of Invisible College. We are excited to build together to help educate and bring the next wave of users into web3.”
Hailed as a new internet standard for content ownership, privacy, and data control, web3 entails a steep learning curve for non-crypto natives. This catalog of courses will empower students to build, influence, and invest in the future of the internet.
Decentraliens are a collection of otherworldly characters represented as NFTs on the Solana network. Each of the ten thousand profile picture (PFP) aliens possess a unique set of algorithmically generated traits and serve as an admission pass to Nas Academy’s bundle of courses.
Invisible College will also be working with Nas Academy to onboard leading web3 instructors to teach courses on the platform, with the goal of becoming the largest web3 learning library on the internet.
“Lately, there’s been lots of debate about web3 use cases,” said Invisible College Co-Founder Nick deWilde. “The way we see it, combining a catalog of high-quality courses with an NFT collection is a fundamentally new way to empower students to own their education. And there’s no way we could have pulled it off without web3 technology.
We also needed a forward-thinking partner who was willing to innovate with us. Fortunately, the Nas Academy team are just the type of crazy dreamers who could help us expand our vision and make it a reality.
Finally, we’d like to thank all of the creators who have joined this historic collaboration. They’ve produced some incredible classes that we’re excited to share with a brand new audience.”
