STEM.org™ will begin accepting STEM Coin to help fund its STEM fellowship initiative for both state-certified and out-of-school instructors/mentors, beginning in Q2 2018.
Partnering with STEMchain will help the organization leverage an ever-growing cryptocurrency market currently valued at over $270B USD(1) to improve outcomes in STEM education. STEM.org will utilize STEMchain’s EcosySTEM platform to build awareness and connect with donors, by accepting crypto funds capable of providing enhanced transparency.
STEM Coin inherently provides the highest level of security and trust through the latest blockchain technology, where encrypted transactions become public record. Additionally, as a partner organization, STEM.org has agreed to adhere to the “Crypto STEM Initiative 100% Guarantee”, whereby STEM.org will only use received STEM Coin funds for their intended mission — educator professional learning.
As an early adopter of STEMchain, STEM.org will immediately benefit from a matching donation program where STEMchain will match 1 for 1 each coin received by STEM.org, from its finite matching pool.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of a select group of top-tier STEM organizations that strive to revolutionize the way educational opportunities are funded — which includes assurances that funds from our generous partners are spent effectively. I am confident that blockchain solutions like STEMchain’s EcosySTEM can not only help STEM.org reach a broader audience by providing quality STEM curriculum and training — but will also lead to increased innovation in the edtech industry.”
— Andrew B. Raupp, founder of STEM.org
