- Open Campus ID will launch on Jan. 23

Open Campus is set to launch Open Campus ID on January 23. This decentralized identifier (DID) aims to revolutionize the educational landscape by bridging the gap between learners and web3 education through the Open Campus Alliance. This initiative brings together an ecosystem of educational companies committed to adopting the EDU token and Open Campus innovations.
Open Campus ID grants learners a unique .edu identifier, enabling decentralized and self-sovereign storage of educational data. This empowers students and educators to have control over their educational profiles and academic information. Additionally, Open Campus ID will be integrated with the systems of educational institutions within the Open Campus Alliance, ensuring privacy-preserving issuance of verifiable credentials.
Open Campus Alliance comprises over 30 companies, including TinyTap and Mocaverse. This alliance aims to onboard millions of users to Open Campus ID, offering a decentralized approach to recording educational achievements.
In parallel, the Open Campus Accelerator (OC-X) plans to invest $10 million, aiming to bring 100 new education startups into the Open Campus ecosystem.
