Powering decentralized blockchain knowledge sharing networks.

Detailed description

Knowledge.io began as a concept for rewarding and celebrating knowledge. Everyone possesses knowledge, and is shaped through their individual life experiences, but opportunities to share, showcase, and receive the benefit of one’s own knowledge can be scarce for most people. Knowledge.io introduces a platform to applaud and reward users for sharing their knowledge. 

Knowledge.io proposes a platform that will enable its participants to attain an immediate reward and validation through gamified learning, verification of expertise, and cutting-edge ad tech based technology. Knowledge.io is a multifaceted platform with forward thinking crypto technology, creating a user centric approach to information gathering and persona building. Knowledge.io proposes a new frontier in knowledge tracking, verification and validation, and through using reward and incentive models detailed below, attains high levels of engagement.

Knowledge.io leverages blockchain technology in two manners: to implement its KNW token as a source of value, and to store information of value to advertisers, educators, enterprises and other users in a transparent manner that gives confidence to all parties involved. Blockchain technology and the Knowledge.io platform facilitate the valuation of knowledge and the exchange of value in view thereof.


Through integration with the Knowledge.io platform, educators, employers, advocates, and others can value and exchange knowledge through voluntary or gamified interactions. Knowledge is universally beneficial, and creating incentives for the development and propagation of knowledge stands to benefit a variety of economic, social, and educational environments.

Data miners, marketplaces, enterprises, advertisers and other third parties can use these Knowledge Scores as actionable intelligence to target and incentivize both digital and brick & mortar campaigns. Knowledge Scores can be assessed individually or aggregated for these purposes. In an individual example, if a user is knowledgeable about BMW and Mercedes sedans, but possesses no knowledge about Audi vehicles, there is an opportunity for each of those brands to engage with the user at different levels within the Knowledge Funnel.
