Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is an idea that doesn't interest me. But I raise it here because it will probably be applied to educational content at some point (there's probably a stealth startup already in the works). “SocialFlow—which manages social-media campaigns for media companies—wants to replace the ad business and its shady click and page-view model with a cryptocurrency-based “universal attention token,” which it announced this week.” The same idea "is already built into a new web browser called Brave, which was launched in 2016 by Brendan Eich."
