Knowledge.io’s “Proof of Knowledge” Helps Learners Prove Their Value

Bitcoin Press Release Learning solutions startup Knowledge.io has revealed the world’s first blockchain-based platform to measure the value of knowledge, with two months to its pre-sale event on January 15th,2018. The Knowledge platform features a unique ecosystem that shares and rewards knowledge encouraged by gamified learning.

November 21, 2017 Ohio, USA – Knowledge.io’s revolutionary platform could be the new standard for measuring the true worth of knowledge. Its platform will spur the promotion of knowledge exchange between knowledge sharers and producers, while rewarding their interactions within the network – powering a decentralized ecosystem of knowledge sharing networks.

Central to the Knowledge platform is the gamification of learning, an educational approach to maximize enjoyment and engagement by capturing the interest of learners and inspiring them to continue learning.

The problem of proving education

Employers and industries recognize knowledge’s value – this is becoming increasingly clear in a sweeping change to the way national economies are looking at the intangible asset of knowledge, be it in the form of knowledge-based sectors down to the so-called catchphrase of human capital.

For the longest time, formal education has been the yard stick of knowledge. From pre-school certificates to high school diplomas, moving on to higher or tertiary education represented by college and university degrees, the quantity of knowledge acquired by individuals is measured on a piece of paper. And the quality, inferred to by the reputation and prestige of the certificate’s issuing body. Yet this system presents several shortfalls.

Firstly, there are different standards to which these qualifications are issued, often at the discretion of the issuing bodies and with no real way for anyone to verify if the person possessing it truly has attained that level of knowledge – or even the details of that knowledge. If a group of people graduating from the same year all have the same qualification, the only way to go deeper is to request for grades, which can be a lengthy and cumbersome process.

 

Secondly, as the quality of education is attached to reputation and prestige of the issuing institution, the cost of pursuing education there is significantly higher. In fact, the cost of higher education is increasing worldwide, anyway, and students are forced into higher debts each year. British students ran up study debts of $55,000 in 2016, up from only $20,000 five years ago. American students recorded an average of $35,000 last year, up 6% from 2015.

What this means is that, those who can’t afford quality education may never own a degree – and never be able to prove the knowledge they have.

Knowledge.io’s Knowledge Score as proof of knowledge

Within the Knowledge platform, users validate each other’s knowledge and expertise, earning Knowledge tokens as a reward for providing knowledge. All this is validated through gamified learning and verification of expertise.

The Knowledge Score technology will then be used to assign values to each participant, objectively evaluating their levels of knowledge across a range of topics. Complemented by vast, proprietary data sets available through its partnerships and a base of over 10 million questions across a topic spectrum, the possibilities are virtually limitless to generate a continuous supply of Questions and Answers.

Thanks to blockchain innovation, a user’s learning is validated, tracked and record permanently over the course of their life. This provides a dual opportunity for future generations of learners who can earn tokens to pay for education and build up a Knowledge Score that will be a recognized standard of evidencing their knowledge.

Knowledge.io and the Knowledge Tokens

Knowledge.io has its conceptual origins in the recognition, rewarding and celebration of knowledge. It considers that all knowledge is valuable not only to the individual that possesses it but to the society that benefits from interacting with that knowledge.

The platform centres around gamified interaction between all knowledge stakeholders from creators such as students and users, to sharers such as educators, and to consumers such as employers and industries. This model of incentivization will not only accurate measure knowledge but spur the development and propagation of knowledge deemed to be the basis of educational, economic and social progress.

To support its goal of combining blockchain innovation with knowledge sharing, Knowledge.io will begin its crowdsale campaign with a pre-sale on 15 January, 2018, about two months from now.

10% of the total Knowledge Token supply (25 million) will be made available during the pre-sale, while a further 20% (50 million) will be put up for sale during the main public ICO to be announced at a later date.

Golden Fleece Token – First Georgian Cryptocurrency Mining Project Utilizing Green Energy

Bitcoin Press Release: Golden Fleece is a Georgian cryptocurrency based on the ERC20 platform, with an altcoin mining business model.  Golden Fleece looks to raise $40 million to make this a reality, via its’ public-released ICO, which runs until march 2019

Nov 5th, 2017, Tbilisi, Georgia – Being the first Georgian cryptocurrency, Golden Fleece looks to make not only a local impact, but also an international impression with their project. Golden Fleece looks to raise $40 million during their ICO, in order to fund construction of a 20MW Datacenter, with capacity increases in the future to remain competitive and profitable.

The $40 million will be used to build mining rigs, which cost on-average $2,500 per rig. Golden Fleece looks to make over $12 million in revenue the first year, with predicted increases to almost $100m by year three. More details can be found by accessing the whitepaper.

Golden Fleece will be distributing dividends to coinholders, but they are switching it up with two unique traits. One of them being the percentage of the payout: 50% of revenue will be given to stakeholders. The second trait, is that the dividends are only applicable to token holders holding a minimum of 10,000 GFL tokens.

$400,000 has already been invested in a pilot mining data center, which boasts a predicted return of 7% monthly. Electricity consumption is to reach 20MW through five stages; the first year will see the first two stages, with total capacity being upped to 5MW. Year two will see the next two stages, to bring an additional 10MW.

The hardware will come from Singapore and Dubai, and will mostly utilize Nvidia P106-100, GTX 1070’s, and AMD RX 580 cards for mining, which through careful planning have been optimized to bring a positive rate of return. Computing power will be split, offering an operation with a portfolio of 50% Ethereum, 10% ZurCoin, 10% DASH, 10% Zcash, and 20% Bitcoin. The team believes that this split in mining assets leverages its’ ability to offset market volatility.

Golden Fleece ICO

To fund the development of the mining centre, Golden Fleece are holding an ICO, where their native GFL tokens are being sold. 350,000,000 GFL tokens in total will be created, with the first Round of 100,000,000 having just closed on October 31st. Round 2, 3, and 4 will continue to raise more money,, all the way until the end of March in 2019, by which point the project will be in full-swing, offering positive returns for contributors.

US Navy Interested in Integrating Blockchain Technology for More Secure Manufacturing Systems

US Navy express its interest in integrating Blockchain technology in their 3D printing and manufacturing systems for more secured process

The US Navy’s Innovation department recently announced its interest in using Blockchain technology for their manufacturing systems.

In the announcement, they specifically mentioned their interest to add Blockchain technology to their 3D printing in order to help securely transfer data through the manufacturing process.

US Navy plans to use Blockchain technology

According to Cryptologic Warfare Officer & Lieutenant Jonathan McCarter, the Naval Innovation Advisory Council will spearhead the testing of the Blockchain technology integration into their system. They will be doing pilot tests and experiments on proof of concepts, data sharing, and securing digital designs throughout the Navy’s network of information. They also plan on creating a data sharing layer among the 3D printing sites using Blockchain technology.

Blockchain being used in government

This is just the start of the spread of Blockchain technology in the US government. It is slowly being accepted by the public, so it is not a surprise that the government is slowing integrating it in their operations.

In fact, there are already a few government sectors that have taken an interest in Blockchain technology. Last May, Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate awarded a total sum of $9.7 mln to several small business for technology research on Blockchain usage. Also, the US government is now seeking Blockchain technology solutions for contract bidding
