What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
We believe that it would be a great opportunity for The Graph to educate and raise awareness about their network to the next generation of professionals and enthusiasts.

We gathered over 12 000 students who wish to learn more about blockchain on a server. They come from schools all around the world. From beginners to experts, they are either in blockchain student organizations or curious about the ecosystem. We have a team of experienced educators and trainers that have the expertise to create high-quality and engaging courses on The Graph.

Therefore, it will also be the opportunity for The Graph to be a pioneer in blockchain education.

Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:

The three of us are the founders of the blockchain society of the University Paris-Dauphine, we are therefore familiar with educating students on that topic. It is actually because we’ve witnessed how complicated it was for students, even within a finance-oriented university, to find time and ressources that we launched Kairos.
We are working with professors of our university to also bring education on that topic to students.

Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
We have been following the developments of The Graph and its unique approach to providing a fast, secure and open network for decentralized applications.
