The concept behind blockchain was born in 2008, in an article about how to create a decentralized system for payments. This article, titled 'Bitcoin', is going to change the world, making possible business models that were unthinkable before.
In any community there are members with different goals, but a common ground. For example, in a market there are buyers and sellers, and in an educative platform there are students and teachers, and companies in search of trained candidates for a job offer.
And there are intermediates. Middlemen. In a normal model, they are needed to get the members in contact. But it would be better if they didn't exist, because more often than not they are more a barrier than a point of contact, and they tend to have their own interests. If the technology allows it, they should be removed from the system.
As a colaborative, peer-to-peer platform, Tutellus firmly believes in decentralization. A community where users have direct communication with each other is stronger than a community that relies on middlemen.
Blockchain technology can monetize the interactions inside the community, allowing the users to reward each other, with users seeing a direct benefit for actions that add value to the platform. This is done through the use of tokens, that flow inside the community and keep it alive.
