What is Student Coin? A deep dive into the ecosystem projects

Faithful to its educational heritage, Student Coin aims to be a one-stop shop for crypto newcomers seeking a trustful source of blockchain education and information.

Launched in 2019, Student Coin went through a rocky journey before carving a niche for itself in the crypto space as a development and blockchain solution designed to supercharge web3 adoption by education. Let’s dive head-first into the depths of the STC ecosystem and explore the amazing opportunities the project offers to crypto newcomers and veterans alike!

Having started off as a robust tokenization platform to facilitate the issuance, management, and trading of Ethereum-based tokens with versatile settings and custom-tuned features, Student Coin later evolved to place more focus on the educational aspect of the crypto space. In a whitepaper 2.0 released in November 2022, Student Coin announced that it would ditch its efforts to secure academic collaboration via the STC Ambassador Program and instead focus on broad community education, citing academia’s general wariness towards the crypto industry as a rationale for the new mission.

Since its EdTech pivot, Student Coin has undergone major changes, revamping its mission statement and expansion strategy. So, what are the current integral parts of the STC ecosystem and why should you give them a try?


The reinvention of Student Coin as the community education hub gave birth to the heart of the STC ecosystem, an innovative online platform called STC.University that brings the concept of lifelong learning to the crypto community. Unbound by physical constraints, this web3 university offers comprehensive courses on all things crypto and blockchain, designed to foster the skills necessary for success in the ever-evolving digital age.

“By tapping into the latest tools and technologies, we’re crafting a unique, forward-thinking educational experience that is not just about absorbing information but about fostering innovation, encouraging critical thinking, and nurturing a lifelong passion for learning,” reads the platform’s vision. Needless to say, all courses offered by STC.University are designed with the aim of equipping students with the knowledge that is also in demand outside the classroom — and the certificate of completion, provided after each course, is meant to showcase the student’s newfound skills to potential employers and stand out in a crowded job market.

At the time of writing, STC.University offers one free course on the foundations of DeFi and four paid courses on different practical applications of decentralized finance, with much more in the works for the next year. Students who pay in STC are entitled to a 10% discount on all learning materials on the platform.

STC Academy

Besides STC.University, which was conceived as a platform offering affordable web3-focused courses with certificates after successful completion, the STC ecosystem has yet another educational project up its sleeve. STC Academy is completely free of charge, featuring a wide selection of educational content on all things blockchain and crypto, from trading how-tos to cybersecurity basics for keeping your crypto investments safe. Rather than passively absorbing new information, STC Academy learners can test their knowledge as they go and receive instant feedback.

In its collaboration with Coinpaper, STC Academy has also released the first film of the planned series on crypto in various aspects of daily life, featuring two prominent experts in the Metaverse and NFT space. An experiment in infotainment, “How crypto changes…” hopes to reach and hook non-crypto natives by framing crypto as a technology that has a role to play in many areas of human life, and not just a flashy internet casino as it is often portrayed by the mainstream media.


The fast-growing online magazine, Coinpaper is committed to its mission of delivering the most objective, in-depth, and precise coverage of the latest developments in the crypto space so you don’t have to worry about missing a thing. Besides the news articles, the publication also features reviews, how-tos, profiles, token analyses, and in-depth project dives for everyone to find something to expand their knowledge of the industry. And for those of our readers who are too busy to frequent our website for the new updates: we got you covered, too! Sign up for our daily newsletter filled with the latest news you can consume in one bite over your morning coffee.

In addition to its core business, Coinpaper has always been eager to lend a helping hand to other projects in the STC ecosystem, from promotion and coverage to creative collaboration on experimental projects, such as the “How crypto changes…” series by STC Academy. If STC.University is the heart of the ecosystem, then Coinpaper can be undoubtedly called its mouth, spreading the word and connecting with partners for sustainable growth.

STC Wallet, App & Terminal

Coming from the old days when Student Coin was more focused on crypto fundraising, STC Wallet, App, and Terminal nevertheless continue to play an important role in the ecosystem.

STC Wallet allows users to store and trade STC-based tokens. The project also enables STC token holders to have a real impact on the decisions made at Student Coin through STC DAO voting.

STC App is a mobile version of STC Wallet that allows you to store, send, and receive STC-based and other tokens, vote on DAO proposals, receive timely updates, and access Coinpaper content.

STC Terminal is a simple, no-code tool that allows anyone to create their own ERC-20 token in less than 10 minutes. With the help of the platform, you can deploy a newly created smart contract in one transaction and customize many properties of your token, such as vesting, burn mechanisms, airdrop settings, token sale, and supply.

STC Research & Finance

STC Research & Finance team is responsible for the proper and secure finance management of the entire ecosystem, tasked with providing safety for the Student Coin. Aside from providing financial streams to STC DAO Voting, STC Research & Finance also conducts thorough market analysis and research to alert STC.XYZ of potential market threats and/or opportunities and oversees Student Coin’s global financial and legal operations.


The brain of the STC ecosystem, STC.XYZ puts together all projects under one umbrella to ensure that all are aligned with the mission and serve the common goal of STC growth and expansion. It is responsible for the coordination of all products of the ecosystem, ensuring that each makes a valuable contribution to the success of the STC token.

Finally, the STC token serves as a backbone of the entire ecosystem, serving as a payment method for all services offered by Student Coin and as a governance token that entitles its holders to have a say over the direction of the project. At the time of writing, STC trades on several exchanges, including KuCoin, ProBit Global, and Uniswap.

“Even in the world of constant change and demanding challenges, we are able to maintain focus. Our objective remains consistent - boost ‍the value of the STC Token,” said Wojciech Podobas, the CEO at STC.XYZ.


With over 300,000 — and counting — registered users across 36 countries, STC ecosystem has already built a strong team of developers and a supportive community. The horizontal structure of Student Coin composed of several independent teams that remain in close collaboration with each other ensures that the entire ecosystem remains resilient, crisis-proof, and secure, while also delivering value for the investors.

As we step into 2024, the key goals for Student Coin are further development of the two educational projects, STC University, and STC Academy, which will see continuing growth and expansion of the course selection. Coinpaper is also set for a bright future thanks to new partnerships and steadily improving search engine positioning. With the ongoing development of all key components, the entire ecosystem is posed for a successful year ahead.
