The KnowledgeArc.Network blockchain developers have been working hard over the summer. Here is some news on what they have been working on, including academic content on the blockchain.
Identifiers and Academic Content
One of the ways we believe the blockchain can add real value to the scientific process is to have stable, permanent and open identifiers. Therefore, we are working on how to implement stable identifiers, like author ids or persistent identifiers for academic content.
Currently, if your 3rd party identification provider stops working, introduces a bug or simply decides they don’t want to be in business any more, your identifiers will be lost forever. Moving identifiers to the blockchain ensures true permanency and full ownership by you.
