EDU Tokens

    Token symbol: EDU or EDU (LiveEdu)
    Token name: Education
    Token address: 0x5b26C5D0772E5bbaC8b3182AE9a13f9BB2D03765
    Decimals: 8

    EDU has already been added to MEW, Imtoken, Parity and Metamask.

  2. I made a mistake and I sent money from exchange. Can this be fixed?
    In general no, but if you have the transaction Id and the exchange can send us a sealed legal document that you are really the owner of that wallet the payment came from then we will issue the corresponding tokens. There is a legal process involved with a lawyer and there is a flat fee of $2500. If your contribution was less than the legal cost it is just not worth it.

  3. I have only ETH on my exchange wallet. How can I contribute in the LiveEdu ICO?
    Guides on How To Buy Edu Tokens

    2. Send from your exchange wallet a test ETH of 0.001 to that new wallet. Did it arrive?

    3. If yes, send the amount of ETH you want to contribute in the ICO to the new wallet.

    4. Now from your new wallet, send that ETH you moved to the LiveEdu ETH smart contract address

    Yes, if you contributing at least $10,000. There is a 15% handling fee as the whole transaction is managed by a third party and process is manual.

  5. How much gas should I set for ETH payment?
    Check the recommended gas at a given moment on

  6. My payment is confirmed on the blockchain, but I dont see my tokens confirmed on the LiveEdu dashbord?

    Did the ETH transaction fail on Etherscan?
    Did you send from exchange by chance?
    Did you really send the payment from same eth address you submmitted to LiveEdu?

    Normally, EDU tokens are confirmed within 1 hour. If you see after 1 hr no confirmation then it is likely because the mistake is on your side:

    • You set too less gas and the transaction failed. Check the transaction status on the blockchain.
    • The ETH address you entered in the checkout process IS NOT REALLY the address you made the payment from. In case of this mistake the dashboard cannot be manually corrected. The tokens will be sent to the exact same address the money came from.
    • You sent the ETH payment from an exchange. In case of this mistake the dashboard cannot be manually corrected.

    All EDU tokens will be distributed after closing of the public sale to all investors in the pre-sale, public sale, and bounty hunters.

  16. Are EDU tokens securities?
    Based on legal advice and opinions we gathered during the preparation process, EDU tokens would not be deemed as securities by SEC based on the famous Howey test.

  17. What is the token supply breakdown?
    There is a soft cap of $1M and hard cap of $10M for all contribution types. All contribution methods are counted towards the hard cap. The additional money will help the company scale faster by getting more content creators on board to create quality content, expand our streaming cluster infrastructure, marketing efforts, team size and number of countries served. For the token distribution the following fixed percentage split is to be used:

    Allocation Percentage
    Crowdsale to investors 50%
    Subscription pool (user token purchases) 9%
    Content Creators (streamers) 13%
    Team 13%
    ICO Legal and Technical Advisory, Bounty Program, ICO Marketing 8%
    API Ecosystem Developers 4%
    Supporters (Quality Assurance and Site Moderation) 2%
    Learners (viewers) 1%
    Total 100%
  18. Why are so many tokens reserved for content creators (streamers)?
    Since the premium content program is a new product, LiveEdu does not currently have a large premium content library for the eight topics. If the premium projects are educational, structured, and of high quality, viewers will buy them. We want to attract the best content creators, and for them to be able to create valuable content they need to invest time.

  19. How will you ensure these streamers create good content?
    To ensure that content creators provide only high quality content, any project created is only counted as a project towards the total project count of the content creator if it has:

    • A minimum total view time of 20hrs (live stream and videos).
    • Been marked as completed by site quality assurance moderators.
  20. What is the vesting schedule for tokens?

    Content Creators

    • For every 3 premium projects completed, a content creator gets 30% of their tokens released to them. The more projects they complete successfully in the ecosystem, the more tokens will be released to them.
    • They cannot sell more than 50% of their released token stake per quarter.
    • They cannot sell more than 50% of their annual released token stake per year.


    As the team has already been working on the product for some time, the vesting schedule for EDU tokens assigned to team members is as follows:

    • 25% will be allocated immediately.
    • 75% over the next eighteen (18) month period.

    Team members cannot sell more than 20% of their tokens per year in the first three years.

  21. How do I purchase tokens?
    Purchases can be done in ETH, BTC and others using Shapeshift. If you have coins other than the aforementioned coins, you can exchange them on Shapeshift for ETH and then use ETH to invest in the ICO. Please follow our How To Buy guide with further instructions on how to buy EDU tokens.

  22. Can I send ETH or BTC directly from an exchange?
    No. You do not have full control of the wallets on exchanges. You will lose your investment and get no EDU tokens if you send investments from an exchange wallet like Coinbase, Kraken, Bitstamp, etc.

  23. What will determine the price of EDU?
    The price of EDU will be determined by the cryptocurrency market and developments within the LiveEdu ecosystem.

    Join our bounty program on Bitcointalk and let us tokenize online education.

  30. Why are you not selling ca. 70% of EDU tokens to investors?
    We are selling 50% of tokens in the crowdsale. LiveEdu is a classic marketplace and our ICO token model is similar to that of Civic and Musiconomi. The content creators (streamers) and ecosystem participants (API app developers) need to be allocated EDU tokens for LiveEdu to be successful longterm. Without them creating high quality content and third-party apps, EDU tokens will gain no appreciation.

  31. Are EDU tokens ERC20 tokens?

  32. Will you do Reddit and Youtube AMA?
    Yes, is in our plans.

    LiveEdu is focused on intermediate to expert educational level, while all existing online sites are focused mostly on beginners. We are focused on the main reason people start learning new skills, namely building a product. We don’t see Coursera/Udemy/Udacity as competitors, but as partners/customers to work with. We plan to syndicate our content to them via our API. They are great for beginners to learn theory and introductory topics. LiveEdu does not provide this, but is focused on teaching people who are above the level of these sites how to build a complete product, e.g a VR Game, an AI Bot, a Bitcoin autotrader. You can describe them as kindergarten and LiveEdu as high school

  36. Is it possible to meet LiveEdu team members in person?
    Our team is spread across the US and Europe. Yes, our team will be going to events in next weeks to meet people and present our product vision. We will announce the events on our site. If you are contributing $500k + we will make special arrangement and meet with you.

    Yes. You can use your tokens for subscription purchases on site.

  43. Will I get more EDU tokens if I wait and pay for my contribution later when ETH or BTC is at a higher price?
    No, base rate is fixed to USD$1 = 10 EDU. The final USD$ price for ETH and BTC will be the average USD rate for the period that the public sale is active. The average will be calculated by taking the sum of the daily average rates for each day of the public sale, divided by the number of days the public sale takes place. The source for this pricing data will be For simplification, we use the conversion rates 1 ETH = $1000 and 1 BTC = $16000.

  44. Will LiveEdu issue more tokens to contributors if ETH or BTC price goes up?
    No. Issuing more tokens due to price volatility goes against the basic logic of token value appreciation for contributors. Since the same base conversion rates are applied for all contributions, issuing 2x more tokens does not change the token ratios between contributors. It will only increase total market token supply, meaning the price of each token will likely drop and each contributor will lose money. IT WILL BE A CARDINAL TOKEN MECHANICS MISTAKE TO ISSUE MORE TOKENS BECAUSE OF ETH/BTC PRICE VOLATITILITY.
