Blockchain Innovation Challenge
As part of the Education Blockchain Initiative, the U.S. Department of Education and ACE launched the Blockchain Innovation Challenge (BIC) to explore how blockchain technology can empower individuals and unlock opportunities for economic opportunity and social mobility.
Through this challenge, we called upon technology developers, together with educators, students, policymakers, industry leaders, and the public to blockchain enabled ecosystems that reorient the education and employment ecosystem around the individuals that they aim to serve.
This challenge invited teams to articulate a vision and design pilots that empowered all learners, unlocked lifelong learning, and improved economic mobility. In doing so, the teams addressed three important characteristics of an ecosystem-first design approach:
Building community and consensus
Interoperability and open design
Data literacy and agency
The BIC will make awards totaling $900,000 over two phases of competition. The four Phase 1 winners will each receive $150,000 and begin the development of a minimum viable product (MVP) with their ecosystem partners. During this development phase, these winners will also receive on-ground assistance, expert mentorship, including from the Amazon blockchain managed services team, as they plan, run, refine, and report on their projects. In May 2021, the Department and ACE will invite teams to demonstrate their MVP and the interoperability of data across projects in order to receive Phase 2 award.
