Introducing The Concept Of Sessia
While key course details such as use-case tutorials, practical information, diploma awards, etc. are relatable to many prospective students, the hands-on tutorials webinar on Sessia is a totally new concept of education.
Learning about Sessia is key to showing the students a real-life use case where Blockchain and Crypto’s are being used to offer a solution.
Sessia is a social network that is based on Blockchain that offers a market place where users can buy and sell whatever they have. It is more advanced than Amazon, AliExpress, Yandex, etc. as it has its own native token-Kicks that allows merchants to offer a cashback reward to their clients in the form of a redeemable Cryptocurrency.
Apart from the loyalty program, convenient marketplace, and CRM for business benefits, Sessia has a virtual automatic telephone feature that allows merchants to reach their global clients and inform clients about offers.
