Khan Academy is a free education platform which educated students ages two to 18 worldwide. The Mountain View, California-based organization already was short of money before the COVID-19 crisis hit and now they are under an even bigger strain. An estimated one billion children around the world are home because their schools closed to help prevent the spread of the corona virus. The learning platform offers videos, quizzes and exercises to keep kids learning.

Khan Academy is one of the 47,156 Brave Browser/BAT Publishers. People using the Brave Browser earn Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) for viewing ads. They can donate their BAT to a publisher who can then convert it into a fiat currency of their choice. Verified publishers can be any top-lever domain, Wordpress blog or YouTube channel.

Salman Khan, founder of the Khan Academy, says his site has had a 50 percent spike in traffic since schools closed. He's received large donations, including $1 million from Bank of America, but he also depends on smaller donations. Khan's $62 million is also supplemented by donations from Google, the Gates Foundation and others.

Blockchain technology is helping to save the Khan Academy because people can also buy BAT and put it in their Brave Wallet so they can donate to the academy. BAT is an Ethereum token currently priced at $0.1467 USD. Brendan Eich, the co-founder of Mozilla and creator of JavaScript, leads the project.

Khan Academy supports parents and teachers in keeping students learning with webinars to help with tips for using the site. They offer schedules which can easily be modified to suit the needs of children. There is also self-paced content. Teachers can use the academy's resources to assign specific work for their students. Besides an education in math, science, engineering and the arts and humanities, Khan Academy has lessons in blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.
