What is the Steem Education Initiative?
The Steem Education Initiative is designed to accomplish this task by engaging university students in thoughtful discussions focused around improvement of English writing skills and the training necessary to publish content onto the Steem blockchain.
The visionary behind this initiative is a longtime Steemit community member that goes by the name of @cryptokraze. The vision is to create a new generation of Steemians in developing countries with strong writing skills and the ability to teach others how to work and be successful using the Steem blockchain.

The story of SEI and how it was founded...
After @cryptokraze shared his idea with @ADSactly and other Steem community members he decided it was finally time to act upon this goal and schedule training with students from a local university in Pakistan. He was supported in this effort by @techblogger who also had a sincere desire to help others and educate students around the world about the Steem blockchain and how to become a model 'Steemian.'
The SEI Has Already Conducted Its First Training!
After the first SEI training, according to @Cryptokraze, the response from students was very positive. After the first brief on steem, he only expected about 10 students to show up in the 1st training session. To his surprise, he had a total of 22 students that appeared for the training session. They were warmly welcomed to start their amazing journey on the Steem platform with SEI.
For more information about SEI's first training session, please review the comprehensive writeup published on the @cryptokraze blog:
What's coming up ahead?
