All You Need to Know about Bitcoins

Millenniums ago, our hunter-gatherer ancestors began trade through barter system. As they settled and established numerous civilizations, precious metals, coins and stones were used to trade different commodities. Next came the notion of paper currency from China. Steadily, its nature too has changed overtime, but generally the nation-state backed banks have held control over the individual currencies. In an attempt to break the dominance of centralized state-managed currencies, an unidentified programmer codenamed “Satoshi Nakamoto,” introduced a ground breaking digital currency, ‘Bitcoins’.

Khud joins WISE ed.hub, an Initative of Qatar Foundation

World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) was established by Qatar Foundation in 2009. WISE is an international, multi-sectoral platform for purposeful creative thinking, innovation, debate, collaboration and engagement. This global platform integrates development organizations from about 200 countries across the world into a community that collectively seeks to find creative solutions to solve challenges facing current education system.

Much like WISE, Khud also believes that education holds the key to solve global challenges across the world – poverty, injustice, unemployment, conflict, inequality and global warming. Problem is that the current education system is not providing the skills required to meet the needs of future generation.

Khud is proud to become part of the growing community at WISE. We hope to share our findings and partnering with the other Pakistani and international organizations registered with WISE.
