Ethos is a blockchain-based cryptocurrency platform. Ethos was previously known as “Bitquence”, and is regarded by the crypto community as “ICO royalty” thanks to its Ethos token being ranked amongst the world’s top 50 ICOs. Ethos’ aim is simple — to make the cryptocurrency market accessible to everyone around the world by using blockchain. This is largely the same as what BitDegree wants to do with education, so it’s no surprise that with similar objectives, an agreement to cooperate was reached.
