Decentralizing Attribution Using Po.et

Successful management of copyright is integral to an academic repository. Attribution, citation and licensing all depends on clear terms of use as outlined in an archived item’s metadata. Decentralizing attribution using po.et and blockchain technologies is an effective method to achieve this.

Current Implementations use centralized methods to store copyright and licensing terms and these terms can be easily changed or manipulated at any time. What is needed is an trusted, immutable ledger of timestamped items, stored in a way that is accessible to all.

Decentralizing DSpace Backups using IPFS

With the Archive token (ARCH) deployed and https://knowledgearc.io live, the team is now focussed on implementing our decentralized archiving ecosystem.

In the beginning…

KnowledgeArc.Network is already under development. We have spent the past year tokenizing various academic material. Using a combination of ERC721 non-fungible tokens, IPFS and OrbitDB, we have been developing an open-source, distributed archiving ecosystem that can be implemented by anyone. Using our Archive token, community members will be incentivized to participate in the creation of a truly open, decentralized academic platform.
