Bringing education to the metaverse- with Mainbot
How Request Finance helps to simplify and automate crypto payments for their educational metaverse
Mainbot's financial operations, particularly crypto payments, were incredibly manual and inefficient.
Managing crypto payments like airdrops involved a lot of manual work, collecting wallet addresses, and sending out payment confirmations to each person.
Doing things manually cost them a lot of time - not just in processing the crypto payouts, but also in keeping track of crypto payments.
Mainbot discovered Request Finance after hearing many positive reviews from other teams in the Web3 CFO’s Club.
Since the team started using Request Finance, Mainbot has been able to save a tremendous amount of time spent on managing their crypto payments and automate many of the manual processes around billing and invoicing in crypto.
The app has made it simple for their community members to send invoices, which Mainbot can pay in batches with just a few clicks.
Now, their Finance team uses Request Finance to manage community airdrops and giveaways.
Better clarity on financial flows
Request Finance's real-time dashboard has provided Mainbot with clarity on their financial flows in crypto each month.
This has significantly improved their ability to monitor and manage their financial operations.
The team felt that Request Finance offered a lot of useful features for an attractive price.
“Since we started using Request Finance, we’ve been able to save a tremendous amount of time spent on managing our crypto payments, and automate many of the manual processes around billing and invoicing in crypto. It makes it simple for our community members to send us invoices, which we can pay in batches in just a few clicks. The real-time dashboard has also allowed us to gain clarity on our financial flows in crypto each month.”
The financialization of Web3 is hard to ignore.
Today, the applications of blockchain technologies like tokens and smart contracts are dominated by either speculative investments, or building alternatives to existing capital markets.
Given that ledgers are conceptually central to much of finance itself, the predominance of related applications in Web3 is understandable.
But in this race to reach the next billion users with Web3, there are notable exceptions. These include use cases like gaming, decentralized data storage - and according to one team - education.
In the 2002 post-apocalyptic science fiction film, The Time Machine, the protagonist travels to the year 2030. He is awestruck when he meets Vox 114, a hologram of the AI librarian at the New York Public Library.
Using its vast “compendium of human knowledge”, and its ability to mimic human behaviors, Vox 114 entertains and educates generations of children in this futuristic utopia.
Similarly, Mainbot, founded in Paris, France, in 2017, believes that it can deliver a different approach to e-learning, more adapted to a new generation of digital natives than traditional education.
That’s why Mainbot is on a mission to reinvent learning by creating meaningful and immersive experiences combining robotics, EdTech, gaming and Web3.
The company’s flagship product, Winky, is an educational and interactive companion for children aged 6 to 12 to help them learn programming in a fun way.
To date, the team of over 40 people has raised about $3 million euros via a crowdfunding campaign via the Sowefund platform, as well as a $25 million euros token sale in 2021.
The team is now expanding its educational offering beyond a physical robotic companion. Mainbot is developing The Winkyverse; an immersive gamified platform in which you can play to learn and teach to earn.
Within The Winkyverse, Mainbot just launched the first Personal Academies this month. Now freely accessible on The Winkyverse map, these Academies aim to share everyone’s knowledge in immersive and customizable environments through interoperable 3D space with the possibility of being able to monetize them in the future.
The first Academies offer to discover various universes created by Mainbot, members of The Winkyverse community, as well as partners.
