EMURGO Invests in Goodwall’s Network
EMURGO, the official commercial arm and a founding member of the Cardano blockchain, has announced a strategic partnership and investment with Goodwall, a skills-based social network for young talent. This partnership is set to support Goodwall’s core mission of leveling the playing field for the global youth by connecting talented youth to „learning and earning“ opportunities.
Unlocking Blockchain Features for African Youth
The World Economic Forum projects that young Africans are expected to constitute 42% of global youth by 2030, raising concerns about equipping them with the right educational opportunities to succeed in an increasingly evolving knowledge economy. This initiative will be facilitated by EMURGO’s investment and Cardano’s „environmentally-friendly blockchain,“ unlocking features such as micro-financial services, micropayments for work opportunities, Peer to Peer (P2P) transactions, scholarships, and more via Goodwall’s in-app Web 3.0 wallet.
Creating Awareness Through Joint Education Initiatives
The partners are set to focus on creating awareness through joint education initiatives as well as providing curated Web 3.0 skills programs connecting Goodwall’s global talent pool to these services within its app ecosystem. Additionally, they plan to enhance transparency and accountability for users through on-chain skills certifications and non-fungible token (NFT) skill badges that can be used for future on-chain voting initiatives.
Bridging Communities To Exchange Ideas
This collaboration between EMURGO MEA & Goodwall also aims at bridging both communities together in order to exchange ideas, facilitate open discussions & create value from collective efforts; helping build an enduring relationship between Africa’s younger generations & Cardano’s broader community globally while furthering the economic empowerment of Africa’s next generation of innovators & entrepreneurs alike.“
With this new venture into Web 3.0 services facilitated by blockchain technology, EMURGO aims at empowering African youths with access to educational opportunities that could potentially open doors into a more prosperous future via its partnership with Goodwall’s dynamic platform!
