Our Projects

BitBadges for Creators

Given its scalable platform, and lower gas fees, BitBadges offers the ability for you to quickly issue utility NFTs for your audience and fans. Due to the scalability of BitBadges, many membership opportunities might emerge. 

BitBadges for Educators

BitBadges is an opportunity for educators to create easy to verify certificates on the blockchain as well as track or reward student progress. The Decentralized University is one of the first flagship projects being developed by BitBadges, and not only does badges work well for individual educators, but it can also work well for clubs, mini-courses, cerifications, MOOCs, and verifiable degrees.

BitBadges wants to make blockchain easy for the average person to utilize, and wants to be a solution for creators that is scalable and doesn't cost too much in gas fees or take too long in transaction times compared to what is out there.
