In an interview with E Business
Review, James Sisneros, the Founder & CEO of Zaahah & the aHa token,
explained that through Zaahah, students may safely explore their interests,
connect with other students and fully participate in school-related activities,
which is proven to impact student outcomes. James is from the United States,
which is the basis of his research. But, when you connect with students and
they become involved, wherever they are, they perform better.
Zaahah is a free platform for schools and youth organizations to promote safe student connections, and track, manage and promote student and family engagement. Channels of communication between students at a schools or from different regions may connect around a common interest, and share ideas, activities, projects, and content.
Zaahah is a closed system and safe for students to connect with their peers at their school or other schools. James Sisneros said. "It fits perfectly with students in the UAE and the entire Gulf region.
Recognizing an opportunity to bring schools and students to the new blockchain and crypto-economy, Zaahah is launching the aHa token, aha rewards engine and aHa wallet. James states: “research shows that incentivizing students and rewarding behaviors makes a difference.” Globally students will earn aHa tokens for attendance and participation. At the youngest age possible, students will be included in the blockchain and new crypto-economy and learn financial literacy. James stated: “there is one aHa token, and students around the world will receive the same value as students in the States. The impact can be transformative.” The aHa token is not just for students. Teachers and parents who are eager to participate in school activities, will be rewarded. As an organization’s community earns, the organization will receive a percentage of their earnings. It seems that everyone has heard of Bitcoin. But, very few people own it. The aHa token can become the “Global Currency of Education” and be widely by teens and parents.
Sisneros was excited to be in Dubai. He made the trip to learn about education in the Emirates, begin to establish relationships with key stakeholders in education and participate in the Unlock Blockchain conference. Dubai and the Emirates are innovators in blockchain and education. He stated: “this was my first trip to Dubai, and I already have plans to return in March to participate in the World Blockchain Token Summit and to continue to build relationships.” James is applying to the Futures Accelerator and exploring opening an office in Dubai.
James came to Dubai because of UAE’s reputation as an innovator. Any innovative youth organization or school interested in Zaahah or the aHa token, should contact James. He will be back in March, and I imagine he would enjoy meeting you. In the meantime, James can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
