Season 6 of the Crypto Academy will be starting in 2 - 3 weeks.
For this new season we are looking to recruit more new professors.
Details of how to apply are below.
Among a number of changes in Season 6 will be a greater emphasis on cryptocurrency trading, including new team trading contests.
Steemit Crypto Academy Professors
The primary task of a Crypto Professor is to produce weekly or bi-weekly course posts on a cryptocurrency / blockchain subject agreed between us.
Each of these posts should also include a homework task for the students to practice and expand their knowledge of the topic.
The Professors are then expected to check, comment on and grade within two days all the homework posts submitted for their course. This is likely to be around 50 - 100 posts a week. Professors will be working in pairs to share the workload of grading the homework posts.
At the end of each week we ask the Professors to produce a summary post giving feedback on the homework responses submitted.
For all their hard work, the Professors are rewarded each week with generous upvotes from @steemcurator01 on their main course posts and their homework feedback posts.
Following feedback the rewards for Professors will be increasing in Season 6.
For Season 6 we are going to have a particular emphasis on trading, so we are keen to recruit Professors with interest and experience in crypto trading.
