Afterschool.ae is aiming to decentralize our 2 sided marketplace using ethereum blockchain to helps parents discover, plan and book the best afterschool activities for their children while at the same time we help activity providers to find new customers and manage their business by providing an end-to-end solution to acquire and engage with their existing customers.
The foundations of afterschool go all the way back to our pilot project afterschool.ae, marketplace for parents in the UAE looking for activities for their kids to book at the same time for activity providers to engage with their customer and run their business using afterschool booking management platform. Since 2015 we have partnered with more than 500+ activity providers including IMG, SEGA Republic, Atlantis generated more than $2m worth of activity booking. Over the years, we've expanded to our database to include schools and nurseries for them to accept admission inquiry. Additionally, we are in the process to acquire traditional online marketplace in Europe and South East Asia to accelerate the growth of the business.
To give back to the community, we will decentralize our platform to incentivize parents and activity providers. We developed a rewarding system protocol, where users earn Afterschool tokens (AST) for their successful contributions to our service. The AST represents the unit of our community driven concept and the service’s growth and health depend on it. In the future, we aim for the AST to become a go-to digital currency for the education industry as a whole. Besides using the tokens on the Afterschool platform, there will also be an array of smart contracts connected with after school industry where AST will be used as a core digital currency.
