DiscoverBlockchain plans blockchain knowledge platform
Blockchain-based knowledge platform will allow users to exchange knowledge and skills around Blockchain
Digital learning company DiscoverBlockchain has announced plans for a blockchain-based network to connect Technology educators, contractors and entrepreneurs in this emerging segment.
The network is intended to support secure exchange of work and knowledge around blockchain, with authentication of the expertise of the participants. The knowledge network will support both the theoretic expansion of blockchain knowledge and the applied development of blockchain initiatives, the company said.
The platform will provide a platform for publication and peer review of distributed ledger knowledge, and job board to help organisations to contract skilled professionals or services. It will also help students to engage with the technology.
"Blockchain technology is not limited to just finance-it is showing promise in revolutionizing services in all kinds of sectors. It is enabling network users to securely and easily exchange information, expertise and permissions without the need of an established trust between network participants. It aims at facilitating a connection between different groups like content creators, educators, learners, API developers and moderators," said Melissa Yacoub, Co-Founder and CEO of DiscoverBlockchain. "We believe in a complete, flexible experience for everyone-even an experienced professional can learn an additional skill from a younger developer. We have created a transparent and fair network, including a marketplace and education platform, that will change the dynamics in the blockchain industry."
"Given the UAE's commitment to blockchain, we are going to see a number of universities and professional organizations start offering blockchain programs. DiscoverBlockchain can be a facilitator to fill the knowledge gap by attending to the educational and professional needs of individuals and leaders looking to expand their understanding and application of the technology and as such, we are very excited to introduce this groundbreaking platform in the region," continued Yacoub.
The platform will include a validation algorithm which will measure engagement and involvement, and provide an individual with a DiscoverSCORE (DSCORE). The DSCORE is a weighted aggregate of a users' history as a student, teacher, entrepreneur, and contractor - integrating their studies, intellectual contributions, projects initiated, and jobs undertaken into a single value representing their relative involvement in the ecosystem of Blockchain.
Rather than being a linear value associated with an individual's quantity of work done or quality of feedback received, the aggregate derives involvement contextually - consistently reorienting itself based on the changing valuation of the content studied or contributed, and the changing involvement of other individuals previously interacted with.
Discoverblockchain.io will launch its token sale on October 1st, 2018, offering up to 360,000,000 tokens to the general public. The sale seeks to raise the funds needed for the continued development of its knowledge sharing platform, with the majority of proceeds dedicated to company growth.
