Fun idea… what if we created an economy around the course?
Users could login with their Ethereum address via Metamask (like ethernaut or Capture The Ether](https://capturetheether.com/leaderboard/) does), and users would earn STUDY tokens every time they complete a section of the course. They could also earn tokens by creating upvoted content/comments on the forum. It could even go so far as there being monthly/quarterly hackathons where users compete and earn tokens as a prize. There’s a Uniswap pool for STUDY tokens.
These tokens would be transferable. Users could then us the tokens to tip each other for helpful comments on the forum. They could also attach bounties to requests for help understanding concepts. They could also use tokens to by “study” hours where someone who’s been through the course can mentor someone new who’s going through it (there would be a registry of available mentors with their rates denominated in STUDY token). With a Uniswap pool for STUDY/ETH people could actually derive real value from contributing to the course/community.
If we wanted to make this a social signalling/reputation thing, the dual token model described here could be used.
It would be a lot of work, but it could be really cool and help create more engagement/energy around the project. It would also give people a direct experience of what Ethereum/web3 can do vs just a theoretic perspective. Thoughts?
