Many spheres of our day-to-day living have been influenced or even revolutionized by blockchain technology: from delivery of goods to AI development. And now the new startup plans to bring up to date one of the lagging behind sectors – private tutoring.

NTOK platform will make tutoring affordable and easy both for teachers and the students. High-quality learning environment with courses provided by prominent textbook publishers around the world.

The NTOK allows users to perform tokenization of their skills. Personal tokens are useful for tutors who want to promote their services and for students, who can raise funds for their education with a promise of future returns for the investors.

Online nature of the courses removes the need to waste time on the road and puts the users in the most comfortable learning environment – their own homes. One of the main advantages to the platfrom is connecting geographically remote teachers and students, while removing middlemen, who inflate rates and are disadvantageous to the whole process. The developers believe, that their ecosystem will make commercial study centers obsolete and reduce the lesson costs by 75%. The whitepaper goes on to boldly proclaim, that on the NTOK platform every student can find a tutor and every tutor can find a student.

The system is already in the alpha-testing stage and is used as an online English language school.
