Afterschool is a 2 sided decentralize marketplace powered by blockchain that 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 biggest kids activities marketplace
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.
A decentralized platform, driven by the Afterschool token
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.
The first ever blockchain-based kids activities marketplace
With the marketplace and booking management platform in place, our platform is ready to expand internationally and become a global leader for after school activity marketplace by introducing an AST token on the surface of ERC20 token standard as a mode of payment and reward system for parents and activity providers and the use use of smart contract powered by ethereum blockchain technology.
Activity Providers will be able to manage their activity schedule, attendance, and engage directly with their customer via our platform. The activity provider will be able to respond to the parent's review and earn AST token that can be used to promote their activities in the marketplace using our customer engagement capability. Additionally, activity providers will be getting a white label mobile solution that is also driven by DApp, that is customised with the activity providers branding, which helps afterschool to extends the utilization of the AST token.
On a Parents level we will offer them a chance to sell additional service in the secondary marketplace that could help activity providers to improve their presence in the afterschool activity marketplace. In this process, we will utilize blockchain technology to negotiate terms using smart contracts and transfer payment (escrow).
