Education Blockchain 50

Jan 24, 2019
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This report is pretty high-level, but it's well-presented and offers a good overview of the state of blockchain in education. The hook is the set of 50 companies identified in an education blockchain market map (pictured). Sectors represented include skills and credential verification, IP, payments, and marketplace. Some examples presented in the article (I've paraphrased from source): Learning Machine, securing credentials on the blockchain; EchoLink, providing information regarding a job candidate’s education, skill and work experience; Larecoin, a cryptocurrency which tokenizes tuition payments, scholarships and student debt; and Orvium, a framework for managing scientific publications.
