Dr. Supachai "Kid" Parchariyanon, the CEO and Co-founder of RISE, states that "Athena is one of the most important puzzle pieces in helping us achieve our goal of contributing 1% growth to Southeast Asia's aggregated GDP. Because of the work that RISE has done over the last five years with corporates, startups, executives, and innovators, we can launch Athena with over 300 mentors from 27 industries and 30 countries." He also reiterated the goal for Athena is to attain 100,000 users by the end of this year and 1 million users by the end of next year.
Paramee Intarachumnum, the Product Lead at Athena, says, "Research on mentorships from Sun Microsystems indicates that those who have mentors are promoted five times faster than those who don't. Nevertheless, workers face two major obstacles to establishing a fruitful mentorship experience: access and sustainability. Not only will we help solve the problem of mentor access, but we also ensure sustainability via the use of tokenomics. Ultimately, the exchange of skills, knowledge, and wisdom that Athena enables will help democratize wisdom worldwide."
The heart of the platform is wisdom mining, whereby a user can receive Athena tokens by contributing as a mentor or participating as a mentee. Either form of engagement with the platform provides tokens. Anyone can start receiving tokens and using the platform for free by scheduling 'Coffee Chat, which is15-minute session. If a mentee would like a longer meeting, Premium Mentorship services are available for a fee. The reason that Athena rewards all types of user engagement is to build a high level of sustainability; starting today, anyone can use the platform and receive tokens under our mentor-to-earn model.
Viriya Reungwai, the Technology Lead, says, "Athena Mentor is only the starting point of our whole vision to democratize wisdom across the planet. Our long-term goal is to democratize wisdom across many areas, including hiring and coaching. Right now, however, our focus is on building the platform infrastructure, which is a blockchain-based economy allowing us to serve as the bridge from Web2 to Web3. First, users who hold and stake our Athena tokens will be able to access premium services and events exclusive only to token holders. Second, the mentoring fee will be lowered for token holders. Lastly, to fulfill the promise of mentor-to-earn, we will partner with other entities to enable the exchange of Athena tokens for fiat currencies, other cryptocurrencies, and goods and services."
To celebrate the launch of the world's first mentor-to-earn platform, users who join Athena will receive three times the usual number of Athena tokens on all their activities from today until May 31, 2022. Anyone can register for free and start wisdom mining today.
