$40,962.93 Raised


BIT has trained senior executive teams from many world-leading organizations including the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), Ernst & Young, The Central Bank of Curaçao & St. Maarten, and The Ministry of Economy of Mexico among many others.

The global blockchain market is predicted to grow from $7.18 billion in 2022 to $163.83 billion in 2029, but there is a major lack of resources for certified professional education and certification in blockchain and related technologies – such as cryptocurrency, NFTs, Metaverse and Web 3.*

Blockchain Institute of Technology has received a federal trademark for education services and certification to train and provide verified certificates in blockchain technology.

Since Our Last Raise

  • At this moment, we have more than 170,000 students from more than 190 countries enrolled in courses and certificate programs developed by BIT, up from approximately 100,000.
  • We have launched in Spanish and are currently expanding into multiple additional languages.
  • BIT has created and published multiple new courses focusing on high growth areas including NFT's, Metaverse and Web3 with additional courses and certifications in the works.

the pitch

While the blockchain and cryptocurrency markets are growing exponentially, there is a global shortage of talent educated and certified in the job skills required for the jobs that need to be filled. This is resulting in thousands of unfilled jobs, as there are not enough skilled workers in the field to meet demand. Blockchain Institute of Technology (BIT) is the world standard for blockchain education and certification, with more than 170,000 students from more than 190 countries enrolled in courses and certification programs developed by BIT. We provide high-quality, internationally recognized, credentialed education and certification in blockchain and related technologies – cost-effectively and at scale. Our mission is to empower the full potential of blockchain by expanding access to professional training and certification in the technology.


Unlocking the Full Potential of Blockchain Through Education and Certification

Demand for experts in blockchain has never been higher, but until now, the industry has lacked a standard education and certification process. Our scalable, effective online courses and training provide a federally-trademarked, internationally credentialed and recognized blockchain certification in order to expand access to this essential new technology. As our customer base grows and we continue to scale, we are ready to become a worldwide standard for blockchain education.

The Problem

Lack of Skilled People in Blockchain Technology is Leading to Thousands of Unfulfilled Jobs, and Unrealized Annual Revenues

In 2020, blockchain was the #1 job skill sought out by employers, but there were only a very limited number of credentialed education and professional certification options to help train talent in this highly demanded area. In 2022 and beyond, the need for educating and certifying blockchain professionals is even more necessary as blockchain, cryptocurrency, NFT, Metaverse and Web3 startups are competing against traditional firms for the limited talent available, and hiring is accelerating at companies with thousands of new blockchain and cryptocurrency jobs being created, all looking to hire from the insufficient number of skilled candidates available.

This shortage of talent skilled in blockchain and cryptocurrencies is having a negative impact on businesses looking to capitalize on the opportunities presented by these fast-growing markets.

According to a Korn Ferry study titled, "Future of Work: The Global Talent Crunch", it is estimated that by 2030, there will be a global human talent shortage of more than 85 million people, or roughly equivalent to the population of Germany. Left unchecked, in 2030 that talent shortage could result in about $8.5 trillion in unrealized annual revenues (Source).

The Solution

Fully Credentialed Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Education and Certification 

We address the needs of our customers by developing and offering professional education and certification solutions in blockchain, Bitcoin and cryptocurrency that combine the following elements:

  1. Scalable, effective online courses and training delivered anytime and anywhere.
  2. Hybrid online/offline training, certification and content options that can be customized to fit the needs and schedule of any organization.
  3. Professional certification examinations with accompanying third-party credentialed certificates with a holographic, counterfeit-proof seal, recorded, and third-party certified on a blockchain to avoid fraud and tampering.

By leveraging these elements, BIT is able to deliver fully credentialed blockchain and cryptocurrency professional education and certification at scale, while prioritizing quality, time, and budget for our customers.

Anytime, Anywhere 

Unlike many other education and certification providers, BIT's educational offerings and digital certificates can be delivered over the Internet anytime, and anywhere. As part of our constant strategy to improve the systems of business to perfection, and a way to further extend our reach and effectiveness, we have developed and made globally available the "BIT Meta Campus", an online education option delivered on the Metaverse.

The Market

By 2030, PwC predicts that blockchain technologies could boost the global economy by $1.76 trillion, and Citi estimates that the metaverse economy could be worth $13 trillion (SourceSource).

Hi George, there seems to be a discrepancy in the terms for the "Ultra Early Bird" Bonus. It says, "Invest in the first 48 hours, get 20% bonus shares" - but it also has the 'countdown' as "6 DAYS 7 HOURS 6 MINS 15 SECS" - Which one is correct? The first 48 hours or the first week? Please advise ASAP. Thanks. Blessings

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.



We want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!


Your info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!


Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements. To learn more about Regulation Crowdfunding, click here, and for Regulation A+, click here.

Investing in private company securities is not suitable for all investors. An investment in private company securities is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. It should only be considered a long-term investment. You must be prepared to withstand a total loss of your investment. Private company securities are also highly illiquid, and there is no guarantee that a market will develop for such securities. Each investment also carries its own specific risks, and you should complete your own independent due diligence regarding the investment. This includes obtaining additional information about the company, opinions, financial projections, and legal or other investment advice. Accordingly, investing in private company securities is appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk and do not require a liquid investment.
