Imagine you're interested in learning something. Be it Spanish, advanced calculus, online marketing, yoga, painting, building your own website, woodworking, bookkeeping, playing the guitar, graphic design, coding, entrepreneurship, or whatever you're interested in. Wouldn't it be ideal if you could find someone close to you that already knows and actively practices what you want to learn; so that you could learn from them, directly? This is what radius is going to facilitate through our open marketplace.
Companies like Airbnb and Uber have shown the incredible value that lies in decentralization, through mobilizing local resources that were previously idle. Airbnb knew you don't need a hotel to host people and Uber knew you don't need a taxi to give someone a ride.
At radius, we know that you don't need a classroom or a teaching degree to let someone learn from you. We want to decentralize learning in the same way Airbnb decentralized hosting: all the way to the p2p level. Our ultimate goal is making the school system completely obsolete.
We are currently working on the release of the first (alpha) version of the platform, to show the world what we're working on, and harvest the first feedback from our future users. We would love for you to be one of the first testers, so let us know if you're interested, because we are taking names!
The initial launch of the company will be in the United States. The reason for that is that the US has such a vast potential user base, because of the large market for alternative education that exists already. Unfortunately, this is going to require me to go through a very slow and costly immigration process, because I am not American. Because of this, we will most likely only be able to really launch summer 2019.
I will be posting updates about the immigration process in this thread as well.
