I’ve been hearing about NFTs and the metaverse in the news lately and thinking about making a career change. Is Republic Realm Academy right for me?
Yes. At Republic Realm Academy you will learn about the history of the metaverse and NFTs, how the field has evolved, and how you can begin your journey into the metaverse ecosystem. The beauty of the metaverse is that it’s decentralized and rapidly evolving. There’s a place for everyone.
I already have NFTs but am curious to learn more about the metaverse. Why should I attend Republic Realm Academy?
Republic Realm is at the forefront of all the new and incredible things happening in the metaverse. At Republic Realm Academy, you will have access to exclusive metaverse marketing intelligence while you grow your network with the Realm community. There will be events, digital merch, NFT drops - the party is just beginning.
I have never bought cryptocurrency or an NFT before. Will I learn how?
Republic Realm Academy will hold orientation before classes start where we will teach you how to set up your metamask wallet, transfer money into it, and buy your first NFT.
What is an NFT Tuition Badge?
The NFT Tuition Badge is a digital asset created with a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain. When you mint the NFT Tuition Badge with your metamask wallet after orientation, you will pay a gas fee for the transaction. A gas fee is the fee required to conduct a transaction on Ethereum successfully. The blockchain will record the transaction and provide public proof that the NFT Tuition Badge belongs to you.
I’ve already paid for Republic Realm Academy, does this mean I’ll have to pay again to buy the NFT Tuition Badge?
The only thing you will be paying for when you buy the NFT Tuition Badge is the gas fee. This is an unavoidable part of the Ethereum blockchain, but something you will need to navigate as you become metaverse savvy. The more people conducting transactions on Ethereum at a time, the higher the gas fees will be. We will show you how to monitor gas fee prices. Needless to say, when you pay for Republic Realm Academy, you are getting exclusive rights to mint an NFT.
What does token-gated mean?
Token-gated refers to a security measure that requires users to hold specific NFTs in order to enter a platform. It’s like a high-tech virtual fingerprint scan, where the NFT Tuition Badge is your digital identifier.
What happens if I sell my NFT Tuition Badge?
Holders of the NFT Tuition Badge may sell it as an NFT on a secondary market at any time. Once you sell the NFT Tuition Badge, you will no longer be able to access any Republic Realm Academy content, community or events.
How does the sale work?
You can register for Republic Realm Academy and pay for tuition through our Republic Realm website.
Once registration ends, your email will be whitelisted and you will be granted access to mint your NFT Tuition Badge into your wallet.
