    why would anyone be against this? We all know that education sucks, getting a job sucks and this seems like a great solution. What are your post ICO opinions?

      I think this project is great! Of course it’s not that there wouldn’t be any other learning sources available on the web, but what Bitdegree is trying to implement is something different and needed. My post ICO opinions? They’re doing a great job, the website is being constantly developed so it’s nice to see that they’re still working hard and didn’t let everything go after raising the money

      If education and getting a job sucks for you, than there is nothing that could help you man… A person needs to be motivated at least so that he would come and enroll into online courses and only then token incentives can come to help the student go through all the course.

    The best part of this project is that it enables the education for everyone with the possibility to get a job. There are many people in poor countries or even in developed ones that do not have enough money for going to college, so Bitdegree could be the way out if they will manage to successfully implement this idea
