Re: coin for knowledge

Hi Alexander, you can find some preliminary thoughts that Mike Sharples and myself have on using blockchains as an academic reputational currency system at:

Hi Alexander,

Take a look at this paper by my colleague Francisco Couto, Rating, Recognizing and Rewarding Metadata Integration and Sharing on the Semantic Web

hi everyone. I was wondering, do anyone know if there are there papers, blogs, etc about coins for knowledge? or the use of a coin based system as a reward for scholars. coins are not necessarily usable dollars but this could just be a metric that is not based on citation, this metric could account for other factors.
