The Acronym in full is 'Javascript Object Notation - Linked Data', or just 'JSON Linked Data'. This page is a central resource on the specification. The idea of JSON-LD is that yopu can present a body pof information that can be read by machines and interoperate with other information. To get a flavour, click on the 'Playground' tab (upper left) and 'Recipe'. Then click on the 'Visualized' tab (half-way down the page). If you see a green dot, click on it. Note especially that the data can be "signed" with RSA or Bitcoin. The documentation tab has a couple dozen good resources on how it works and how to use it. The 'Specifications' tab gives you the formal document and the 'Branding' tabcontains images and code libraries in Javascript, Python, Ruby, PHP and others. JSON-LD is part of the PaySwarm standardization initiative.
