As of today, Friday 18 June 2021, Bitfinex Pay will be integrated into ODEM.
ODEM is an on-demand education and employment marketplace that directly connects employers, students and teachers.
With the new integration, ODEM users will be able to use Bitfinex Pay to pay for program purchases and job postings. In addition, the implementation of the Bitfinex Pay widget will allow platform users to purchase courses and programmes by paying in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and ODEM (ODE).
ODEM directly connects employers, students and teachers to make learning, working and professional growth more convenient, accessible and efficient.
The marketplace was founded in 2017 by Richard Maaghul, and was built on a vision of how blockchain could be used to transform the inefficient education and employment industry.
It already has over 30,000 users, from 166 countries, and a wide variety of Silicon Valley and Fortune 500 employers.
Bitfinex Pay, on the other hand, provides a means for online merchants to receive payments with digital tokens.
ODEM on Bitfinex Pay
ODEM’s goal is to create the first cryptocurrency-enabled education and job marketplace to create broader inclusion in this sector by making it accessible to unbanked users.
As part of this collaboration, educational programmes will also be launched that will help developers understand the power and functionality of Bitfinex Pay, and simplify implementation and testing.
ODEM CEO Richard Maaghul said:
“We’re excited to bring the ODEM token to life on our platform and fulfill our original promise of making education more affordable and accessible. With 94 percent of people worldwide having never stepped through the doors of higher education, we understand that providing financial access to education and meaningful work opens many new doors for people to participate in the modern workforce through access to the right training and skills”.
The CTO of Bitfinex, Paolo Ardoino, added:
“We are gratified that ODEM has chosen to implement Bitfinex Pay, as our technology for enabling contactless and borderless digital token payment increases in popularity. I feel confident that the rich features available through the implementation of Bitfinex Pay will find a ready uptake among ODEM’s user base”.
