LearnTap is the innovative new web3 learning platform being jointly developed by BrightID, Unitap and NoFunZone. Think Duolingo for web3: this easy-to-use platform is focused on onboarding new users to web3 by making blockchain fun, and by using blockchain to do it.
To begin their web3 journey, players mint an avatar NFT that represents them on the blockchain. As they play through modules and learn more blockchain fundamentals, their NFT avatars level up, grow and evolve. Growing your LearnTap NFT helps build your Web3 Resume, which is an on-chain ledger of your blockchain accomplishments and skills.
To get through the game, players will need to make all sorts of smart contract interactions on all sorts of chains. And, as you know, they’ll need gas tokens to do this - that’s where Unitap comes in. Players will initiate their blockchain adventures by grabbing gas from Unitap faucets. In so doing, they will naturally be introduced to BrightID, and will make an ID for themselves.
BrightID, Unitap and NoFunZone are all deeply committed to the creation of LearnTap, as education is a vital element of increasing web3 accessibility. The biggest shared goal of all 3 organizations is the proliferation of blockchain technology by easing the onboarding process. Therefore, the development of LearnTap is a critical step in achieving this shared goal.
LearnTap benefits BrightDAO and its members in 3 ways:
Improved Proof of Uniqueness - the LearnTap platform introduces a way for people to build their Web3 Resumes. This means that they can start accumulating decentralized proofs of things like courses they’ve completed, tests they’ve passed and coding challenges they’ve overcome. As users build their resum3s, their wallets and web3 identities become more and more distinct and well-defined. LearnTap share’s BrightDAO’s core belief that all humans can benefit by being able to prove their uniqueness, and that they should have the right to maintain their privacy, and that BrightID is a tool to achieve this goal. Combined with BrightID’s proofs of identity, LearnTap’s proofs of aptitude and exercise will further increase people’s ability to define their unique features while maintaining autonomy of their information. LearnTap also provides ever-growing utility to having a unique and provable web3 identity as the use of web3 resumes for job application and DAO application grows.
More Users - players of LearnTap are compelled to obtain gas tokens from Unitap by creating a BrightID. As a result, LearnTap increases the userbase of both Unitap and BrightID (not to mention blockchain in general). More people being onboarded to BrightID means an increased interested in it and its governance, and thus an increase in demand for $BRIGHT for governance participation.
More Revenue Streams - the LearnTap game introduces numerous new revenue streams, including sale of the flagship LearnTap PFP NFTs that provide utility, along with the sale of purely aesthetic NFTs that players can buy to modify their gaming experience and show off. Bright ID and Bright DAO can earn revenues from these NFTs via royalties, an initial distribution of NFTs, or something else (specifics TBD).
Point 1. illustrates how LearnTap’s success and proliferation completely fall in line with the highest goals and values of BrightDAO. All 3 of these things serve to increase demand on the $BRIGHT token, the use of the BrightID platform, and participation in BrightDAO. Point 3. introduces the potential for additional revenue streams, which would increase the flexibility and speed of BrightDAO.
Therefore, LearnTap would provide a vast amount of value to BrightDAO and $BRIGHT holders.
This general SUGGESTION PROPOSAL puts forth the idea that BrightDAO should support the development and implementation LearnTap. Roughly, this includes development of the educational game, the website platform, and marketing related to the platform’s success. The specifics of BrightDAO’s support will be democratically decided on via future proposals.
