by MVP Workshop

As the leading blockchain product R&D studio in the region, we feel the responsibility and have a strong desire to share our extensive knowledge and experience with the community – best practices, case studies about projects we developed and domain-specific knowledge, in order to facilitate proper development of decentralized products and services, and furthering their mass adoption.

That is why we decided to create this three-part educational program for all students interested in blockchain development. Welcome to Web3 Academy!

MVP Workshop’s

Web3 Program for Students

Why you? Well, this academy provides you with an opportunity to become a part of something unique in the history of mankind – as internet changed the world, decentralization (and blockchain) will change both the internet and landscape of the global society – but, it will take time. So, if you want to be on the forefront of creating a truly free, decentralized and stateful web, and learn from us on practical cases from projects we successfully developed – you are in the right place.

Web3 Academy

MVP Workshop is organizing, in collaboration with several faculties form University of Belgrade,  a month-long set of Web3 themed lectures aimed at showing the importance and potential of the decentralized web. The main goals of Web3 Academy for college students are:

  • Raising awareness about Web3 and blockchain technologies
  • Preparing students for the Web3 R&D Challenge by introducing Web3 & blockchain case studies and addressing practical questions on these topics

What will we talk about?

1st

Week

Web3 and Blockchain – Introduction and the Current State of Industry

  • What is happening?
  • Why is it happening?
  • What are the best projects?
  • Why are we here?
  • Where do we go from here?

2nd

Week

Tokenization of Assets and Token Economy

  • How to tokenize the asset?
  • Designing the token economy
  • Types of assets
  • Tokenomics over time
  • Key factors to consider

3rd

Week

a) Deep Dive into Token Economy and Business Models

  • Decentralized Business Models
  • Real-world implementation
  • Defining the product

b) Bootstrapping PoW, PoS, Po(X) Blockchains

  • Types of networks
  • Why PoW and PoS?
  • How to bootstrap a network

4th

Week

a) Legal Aspects of Tokenization and Decentralization

  • Legal frameworks
  • Best markets
  • How to incorporate

b) Zero-Knowledge Proofs & Side Chains

  • What is ZKP?
  • What are sidechains?
  • Advantages & use-cases

The educational program will take place during February and March at two faculties: the Faculty of Organizational Sciences and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade. Our program is supported by the FOS Research & Development Center. The lectures are open for interested college students from any faculty.

More to come soon…

Facilitating an internet where independent blockchains can exchange information and transactions in a trustless way via the Polkadot relay chain

Creating an innovative, efficient and practical software product that addresses the key problems with the current model of user identification online

Developing tools for real-time monitoring, alerting, and troubleshooting of Smart Contracts.

Web3 R&D Challenge

Stay tuned

Web3 R&D Challenge will be an opportunity for students to apply their learnings from the Web3 Academy and take on a challenge to develop a working demo of a product with the implemented token economy.

The challenge will be open for all students (from colleges, as well as high schools), regardless of their attendance at Web3 Academy. The students will receive a challenge in the form of a technical case study written by MVP Workshop employees. Each team will consist of 4-6 people – we recommend you fill the roles of  3-4 engineers, 1 marketer and 1 product manager, but whatever works for you is fine with us.

We will choose a team of interns from the participant pool for a summer internship with MVP Workshop. The challenge will be held during March and April, and teams  will have 14 days to submit their solutions and they will be evaluated by an expert jury formed by MVP Workshop. The solutions will be submitted online.

Experiment

Web3 Playgrounds

The main goal of Web3 Playgrounds is to qualify students for and provide them with an internship at MVP Workshop, during June, July and August.

The selected team of interns will be developing a Web3 open-source software with the mentorship of MVP Workshop experienced  employees who will oversee the process. They will also have the opportunity to deploy the open-source software live so they can use it as a reference.

Web 3.0

The Decentralized Internet of the Future

It’s a known fact that today’s companies are collecting massive amounts of personal data to the point where user privacy (and it’s definition) is a major concern. Hackers are getting smarter, computers more powerful, and securing this data in centralized databases is becoming more and more difficult.

Web 3.0 (Web3) is based on Tim Berners Lee’s concept of linked data, and it should provide the following on a global scale:

  • Data in user’s control – all information is owned and controlled by the user, and provided to second parties who hope to benefit from the user and said data Censorship resistance – no authority should control your access to information
  • Transparent and open networks – the code governing the platforms we use should be open-source, and kept in check through mechanisms of ’voice’ and ’exit’
  • Global interactivity – the ability for users to transact any type and size of assets, information and value in general, with anyone on the internet , anywhere and for a lowest cost possible
  • Self-sovereign identity – own, see, and understand your entire digital identity (and footprint)
  • ’Push’ instead of ’Pull’ – push information to trusted sources instead of pulling it from sources who ultimately own the data (as is now)

How will Web3 accomplish all these noble feats?

Blockchain.

We’ve all heard of Bitcoin and the entire cryptocurrency buzz, as well as the technology that underpins digital currency – blockchain. The tech allows digital information to be distributed, but not copied. That means only one individual can own each piece of data. The information is constantly reconciled into the database, which is stored in multiple locations and updated instantly. That means the records are public and verifiable. Since it’s completely decentralized (there’s no central location that holds the data), it is harder to hack since the info exists simultaneously in millions of places. This is why some refer to blockchain as a distributed world computer.

Just as consumers are going to demand a more user-centric, transparent internet with Web3, they are going to demand the same from the apps they use.

Because blockchain offers an immutable record, transparency and trust are foundational. Users wanting to control their data and identities will embrace Web3 – a  decentralized, stateful web. These demands lead us to decentralized applications or DApps. Traditional apps usually incorporate “middlemen” that collect (and often share) our information. There are various types of decentralized apps, but one common feature they all share is they eliminate needless intermediaries, protecting the privacy of users, as well as minimizing transaction fees as a result.

Example

Uber, an app that is a link between a user and their driver. With a DApp, the user can connect directly to the end provider, free of middlemen.
