Partnership with Edu3Labs

CityDAO has partnered up with Edu3Labs, an "advanced educational platform that seamlessly combined online education, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technology". Edu3Labs offer various services which targets many infographics including investors, entrepreneurs, content creators, and gamer. In this partnership, we'll be receiving an offer to gain access to their NFE marketplace, a new educational platform for publishers, authors, educators, academicians, and students.

By the time that this newspaper has been published, CityDAO citizens would have already received an NFT airdrop on the testnet called "Edu3Labs x CityDAO NFT Pass". Which grants CityDAO's citizens 1 month of access (3 months for founding citizens) to Edu3Labs' NFE marketplace. Go check it out!
