What Is BitDegree? – The Idea Behind the Project

BitDegree is the world’s first blockchain-powered educational platform. That sounds awesome and great but what does it actually mean? Have ever heard of online education platforms like Udemy, Coursera, Codecademy or Edx? BitDegree tries to become an upgraded version compared to those educational platforms.

The goal of BitDegree is to provide the best online courses with a blockchain based reward system. In the other words, students will be able to learn amazing skills on BitDegree and earn at the same time. Before we run into the other details, I would like to show you the YouTube video where the BitDegree CEO Andrius Putna explains their goal and shows how their team works:

BitDegree vs Udemy vs Coursera

I have bought many courses on Udemy and I have recently created my own course where I teach how you can make money with cryptocurrencies in 2018. I have also reviewed Coursera online learning platform and you can check out my review on my other blog here.

However, there are a few things that could be improved from Coursera and Udemy. If I would like to pay for courses with cryptocurrencies on Udemy, that’s not possible yet. I can’t either receive my instructor salary as cryptocurrencies. I want to see a world where we can freely pay for services with cryptocurrencies but that’s not yet possible on Udemy. That’s where BitDegree comes into play. You can pay for courses by using cryptocurrencies!

That’s only of the improvements. One of the leaders of BitDegree worked before on Coursera and he realized one common challenge. Students start a new course but they don’t have enough motivation to finish it. BitDegree tries to solve this challenge by offering rewards for students who finish their courses.

This has various benefits:

  1. Instructors are more motivated to create better courses because they know that students go through the whole course.
  2. Students can earn while they learn.
  3. Business owners and employers will be more willing to educate their employees using BitDegree platform because they know that instructors are great and students are motivated to learn.

These were only a few benefits of BitDegree platform compared to older platforms. You can see more in the picture below or by reading their full white paper here.

One of the most exciting benefits of BitDegree is that they are going to use gamification on their platform.

BitDegree Team

One of the greatest benefits of BitDegree is their large team. They have around 30 members of their team and some of them are real “superstars” in the industry. Let me show who are their leaders:

bitdegree team
Andrius Putna, Roberto Santana, and Jeff Burton are leaders of the BitDegree team.

The biggest name in their team is certainly Jeff Burton. He has tens of years of experience in the Silicon Valley and he has mentored numerous tech startups. In addition, he is the co-founder of EA (Electronic Arts) which is one of the biggest game companies in the world with the market cap of over 35 billion.

Roberto Santana has been a senior manager at Coursera that provides a pretty similar service like BitDegree. He brings a huge knowledge and know-how from his past workplace. I have listened to his interview where he explains that he already has a few things in mind that they can do better than Coursera.

Andrius Putna is the CEO and the main leader of the company. He is a “talking head” on their YouTube channel and you can quickly see that his communication is clear easy-to-understand. Andrius is a man behind 000Webhost’s success. That company has tens of thousands of clients and user they have received an average rating 4,9 stars out of 5 based on more than 2,200 reviews. That’s impressive!

The most of their team members are from Lithuania like their CEO. Based on my researches there are surprisingly many blockchain-based projects from Lithuania. Probably the country is very positive with these new innovations.

Token Distribution – BDG Team Gets Their Tokens After 2 Years

There will be 660 million BDG (BitDegree) tokens in circulation in total. The picture below shows how they are distributed.

is bitdegree a good investment

51% of the tokens were sold for the public during the ICO. The price of each token was $0,05-0,07 during the ICO stage so they received over $20 million to increase the value of the project and to improve their platform. The picture below shows how the team will allocate the budget.

bitdegree review

In the future, you will be able to use BDG tokens on their educational platform. Of course, you can also sell them to other people for a higher price if you want to take out your profits. BitDegree is built on the Ethereum platform.

One great thing that you can see from the upper chart is that the team will get their tokens only after 720 days from the beginning. It means that they are incentivized to work hard and build the platform. Then their get their “salary” in the form of tokens. Their advisors and partners get tokens after 160 days and the foundation after 360 days.

Online Education Market Is Rapidly Growing

I like investing my time and money in the industries that are rapidly growing. I was before working as a taxi driver and after that as a transport manager in the logistics company. However, there is a great possibility that in the future machines replaces many workplaces in those industries. At the moment I am working as an affiliate marketer and as you may know, the yearly revenue of affiliate marketing is exponentially growing.

The same applies to the online education which is the industry of BitDegree. You can see in the picture below how rapidly the number of online courses has been growing over the years.

is bitdegree a good investment

Already in 2016 people were using more than $46 billion for self-based e-learning products and services. That’s a huge amount and it’s growing all the time. I am constantly educating myself online and paying for different services.

It’s funny that I have a Bachelor degree in social services from the University of applied sciences but I don’t do anything with it because I work online. I learned the skills through, for example, this step-by-step training that taught me to make money online.

I believe it’s the future and it’s happening to many other people as well. University teachings are getting outdated and thousands of people worldwide are getting educated through the Internet. I know personally tens of people who make their living online even though they don’t have any formal education for that.

The BitDegree Project Doesn’t Start from the Scratch

A good thing to notice is that BitDegree doesn’t need to build their business from the scratch. Their CEO Andrius Putna is a man behind 000WebHost that has been highly successful over the years. They have more than 29 million tech-savvy users already.

The BitDegree platform has already launched some courses that you can go through yourself. In the other words, they have already taken several steps to success. They aren’t only talking about the idea that they are going to create in the future because they have already created something tangible.

BitDegree Community Is Active

BitDegree has a very active community of several social media channels. Let me just point out a few statistics:

  1. +82,000 followers on Facebook.
  2. ~20,000 members on their Telegram channel.
  3. +17,700 followers on Twitter.

In addition, they have a YouTube channel and active discussion on Reddit. An active community is one of the most deciding factors when we are talking about the market price and changes in the short term. It has also a big impact on the long term. More people get interested in the project which brings more money in and opens also more opportunities.

I recommend that you follow closely the cryptocurrency projects that you are investing in.

Where Can You Buy BitDegree?

At the moment you can buy BitDegree on IDEX and on EtherDelta. My friend Markus Hyytinen wrote recently a guide that shows how you can buy BDG tokens on EtherDelta with Metamask wallet.

The BitDegree team is also actively negotiating with exchanges and it most likely will soon be listed to some of them. For investors, it’s a positive thing that BDG is not yet listed in the major exchanges. Usually, when a new coin gets listed on the exchange, the price jumps up because more people can buy it more easily.

Conclusion – Is BitDegree a Good Investment?

Based on these 7 (and a few other) reasons I have invested in BitDegree:

  1. The goal of BitDegree is to improve education. Education is close to my heart and I believe a good education can make our world a better place.
  2. BitDegree can clearly be superior to current platforms.
  3. The BitDegree team is experienced, big and motivated.
  4. Token distribution model motivates the team to work hard to receive their salary.
  5. The online education industry is rapidly growing.
  6. BitDegree already has a platform and they don’t need to start from the scratch.
  7. The BitDegree community is big and active.

I am not a trader but I am interested in investing in projects that have a long-term value. Therefore, I am not too interested in the changes of the market price on the daily basis. I bought BitDegree when one token cost over $0,30 and if the project succeeds, one token can easily be worth many dollars.

Even though they have already a platform and a ready customer base we are still in the early stages of this project which means that anything can happen. Investing involves always risks but in my opinion, the expected value is positive with BitDegree. I would love to hear your opinions in the comments below.

If you are interested in proven ways to earn money online, I recommend taking a look at the step-by-step online business training by clicking the picture below. Your financial risks are probably smaller if you are building an online business rather than investing in the cryptocurrencies. However, I am doing them both because I believe it’s good to have numerous income streams so your all eggs aren’t in one basket.

4 Steps to Making Money Online


What do you think about BitDegree?

Is it worth buying or not?

How much will the value be in the future?

Let’s discuss in the comments below! 🙂

By Roope Kiuttu

Hello! I am Roope "Robert" Kiuttu, the founder and owner of YourOnlineRevenue.com. I created this website back in 2015 to help you to make money online. You can ask me anything and I'll be happy to help you out. I help people daily to make more money online and I love seeing people succeeding. If you want to get my 1-on-1 support and help to make money online as well, get started HERE.


  1. I was skeptic about this project because it didn’t seem to be the one that standouts from the rest of learning platforms, but it got me in a good way. The fact that they add gamification to the whole process, makes it even better. I tried the Solidity course at BitDegree and it was very engaging.

  2. I am really enjoying BitDegree courses, online education platform seems like a future education to me. Thanks for this review, it’s great. Good luck! 😉

  3. These guys are great. Love the courses, love the idea behind this whole project. Even though they’re still quite young as a company, it’s been amazing to see just how much they grew. I think this is definitely the future of education.

  4. I love learning new stuff. I remember a couple of years ago I learnt to code on the edx CS program. However I have never encountered a site that one can easily transact using crypto which makes BDG very flexible.

    CryptoCurrency is truly no longer a future currency it is here with us now.

  5. Been studying on BitDegree myself, really like what they’re doing. As a student if I have a request I just email them and issues are fixed in 1 day. No ads, free content, some great instructors. Believe in this project HARDCORE! 😀

  6. Hey Roope,

    I was wondering did your opinion change during these few months after you posted your article or do you still think Bitdegree is a good investment? The token price has been falling down after the ICO, I believe in the project and I know it’s great, but I’m wondering what’s the opinion from investment side. Thanks!

    1. It’s really a mystery why BDG price is so low. Maybe the market thinks that it will not have a real purpose/value in the future. However, I believe BitDegree platform will do great. But nobody can say what will the value of the token be then.

  7. The concept of having the first blockchain-powered educational platform is very creative. Since cryptocurrency is now becoming a growing trend, it’s just about time to educate people as well in this form of investment. Well, as you’ve mentioned, even the platform itself is already a great investment. BitDegree will certainly help people gain more in-depth knowledge about cryptocurrency, making them more confident to trust and invest in them in the future.

  8. Hi Roope,

    thanks for the insights, this was really helpful as I am constantly looking for the new sources to learn on a free time. Tried bitdegree and liked their different concept, it seems like they really puting effort into making courses more enjoyable, especially interactive ones. Would be really interested into seeing your courses there!

      1. I’m a proud Bitdegree student haha, a couple weeks ago started to learn some of the courses, including the ones from bitdegree. Where could I find your courses?

  9. Great review can I expect your course on BitDegree? I’ve been looking into this project for quite some time now. Participated in the ICO. It’s great that they’re moving really quick now, like only half a year passed and a product was made. High hopes for this to skyrocket in the future!

    1. I haven’t yet made a course on BitDegree but maybe I could publish my upcoming ICO course also there that I will publish on Udemy as well.

      If you want to take a look at my previous cryptocurrency course, you can check it out here.

  10. First of all, very good review. Secondly, I’m taking BitDegree free courses and it’s superb education quality, if you know anything free alike BitDegree please share!

    1. Hello Dave,

      you can also find many free courses on Udemy. Most of the courses are paid but there are also many free courses that provide great value.

  11. I think it’s a big benefit that at the moment Bitdegree offers courses for free. In this way you can check them out if they really suit your needs. I had purchased some Udemy courses in the past but eventually failed to complete most of them, so it kinda demotivated me to purchase more. Thus, I clearly see the issue with lack of motivation on such platforms and Bitdegree’s token reward program could be a great solution for that!

    1. Exactly. It is exciting to see how the BitDegree team moves the project forward. So far, the token price has been dropping and it’s interesting to see whether or not it’s gonna jump up in the future.

      1. Well I believe that once the token is fully implemented into the platform and usable to purchase courses, this should reflect on the price. Can’t wait to see how it goes 🙂

        1. That’s true. Exciting to see how the price of the token moves then. Following cryptocurrency price changes is exciting like watching a fast-paced ice hockey match 😀

    2. I know that feeling. Couldn’t finish more than half courses in Udemy nor Udacity, as it was a humdrum experience always listen to the instructions. Eventually, I see BitDegree movement that will include as many people as possible to the marvellous gamified courses suchlike Space Dog.

  12. I love the way how BitDegree rewards their students in the form of tokens for learning. In this way, the students would be more motivated to learn and finish up a course. It is just amazing!

  13. Hey Roope, just read your article about BitDegree, read some before, but your points were essential here. Now I see BitDegree as potential platform to invest, as online education will not stop growing.

    1. Thanks John. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed my article. I really believe in the future of the online education. It will be interesting to see how BitDegree project moves forward in the future.

      1. Guys, I couldn’t pass your discussion through. As a student, I used to be hardcore Codeacademy fan as the price-quality ratio was my main priority always, so they beat Udemy on this point imo. What I saw BitDegree is giving away courses for free, therefore I’m taking Python courses and appreciate their content, so far so good. What do you think, does BitDegree have a bright future?

        1. I want to believe that BitDegree has a bright future but they really need to work hard to make their platform succeed. The competition within online education industry is also quite tough because there are many providers.

          A big benefit of BitDegree is that they will be accepting cryptocurrencies as a payment form unlike other online education platforms at the moment.

  14. Oh that’s great! I will now include that in my online way of making money. i hope you can give us an update about this and guide us to succeed in this platform.

    1. Yeah, I believe one way to earn money on the platform will be creating courses like on Udemy. Recently, I published my first Udemy course on making money with cryptocurrencies and I am planning to create even more courses there. It’s a nice way to build more passive income.

  15. I am also an advocate of education for that is the only way the world can improve and go further. Educating the populace in the world of technology has been a good way to keep everyone busy and the good thing I have to admit I like about BitDegree is the opportunity for one to earn while learning on the software and it is a smart choice made by Andrius Putna who is the CEO of this new educational platform.

  16. So bitcoin payment is available on BitDegree. I have attended many courses on Udemy. I have also enrolled for a couple of courses on Alisson (which is free to attend but have to be paid for receiving the completion certificate). I have heard of Coursera, however, never tried it. I will have to check this new learning platform.

    1. Yes, you will be able to pay with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies on BitDegree. That’s one of the several benefits they have compared to Udemy or Coursera. I haven’t heard of Alisson before but I’ll take a look.

  17. Thanks @Roope for this review on BitDegree, the information provided here looks promising about the project of BitDegree. Even without one actually investing in the project, the knowledge alone is worth a trail in my opinion.

  18. Great review Roope!
    I hope you can update the article to include which are the best exchange platforms we can buy or sell these tokens through, as most exchages either support only some of the cryptocurrncies and tokens, and some exchanges are not reliable in terms of accessibility and hacking issues. Another thing is also what wallet do you use to keep them.. Is there a desktop wallet that supports it? I hope you give us answers on these.

    Best Regards,
    Amjad (from Wealthy Affiliate :))

    1. Hi Amjad,

      Thank you for your comment! You can buy BitDegree at the moment on EtherDelta and on IDEX. I bought them on EtherDelta. Now I hold BDG tokens on my MetaMask wallet (I have also registered a wallet on MyEtherWallet.)

      I hadn’t used EtherDelta or MetaMask before so I must admit that it took some time to learn how to use it. My friend Markus also helped me on how to use them. You can check out his article here. He explains how to buy BDG tokens on EtherDelta.

      For buying most of the alt coins I have used Kucoin and Binance but BDG isn’t available there at the moment. I think the price will go up when it reaches those or other big exchanges.
