KnowledgeArc and the Blockchain

Academia and the Blockchain compliment each other. KnowledgeArc are developing ways to work with blockchain technologies in an academic context.

Persistent Identifiers

The old way:

Persistent identifiers are centralized. 

They are no longer persistent if you don’t pay your subscription. (more than the cost of a yearly domain registration)

Modern persistence:

A decentralized network of persistent identifiers, verified by all users.

Accessing persistent identifiers: either via an ipid protocol or via the http protocol.

Example: http://ipid.knowledgearc.net/0CCE52167894552870C7AA646B13AFFFE09B18307C75162CDE2DB358926A9EC1
