Switzerland-based ODEM sold more than 100 million ODEM Tokens in its crowdsale that ended March 19.

ODEM, creator of the world’s first On-Demand Education Marketplace, is pleased to announce formation of a strategic partnership with Rivetz, a provider of hardware-based digital security technology.

ODEM and Rivetz will work together to provide students, educators and suppliers of services to ODEM’s blockchain-based platform with superior security solutions.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to deploy Rivetz technology on the ODEM Platform,” says Richard Maaghul, chief executive officer of ODEM. “Ensuring platform-wide security is part of the ODEM vision of using blockchain technology to empower students and educators.”

Rivetz, recognizing the importance of ensuring user confidence in consumer and machine-to-machine digital transactions, provides technological security solutions that use hardware-based trusted execution technology to protect digital assets.

"We are excited to work with ODEM on delivering their users provable hardware-based multi-factor authentication or multi-sig and secure display of transaction details,” said Steve Sprague, CEO of Rivetz. “Through our cybersecurity tools, we will be leveraging a modern model in which the devices will play a crucial role for all users of the ODEM platform.”

Switzerland-based ODEM sold more than 100 million ODEM Tokens in its crowdsale that ended March 19. Proceeds from the sale will be used to fund ongoing development of the blockchain-based ODEM Platform. A beta version of the education marketplace is scheduled for completion in the first half of this year.

ODEM is developing its platform to streamline the logistics of organizing and delivering short-and-medium-term academic experiences that have traditionally been plagued by inefficiencies. Blockchain technology also underpins the creation of the ODEM Token, an exchangeable digital token.

KPMG is ODEM’s legal advisor while SICOS (Lux) S.C.S. has provided ODEM with advice and counsel on the crowdsale and its structure.
