Witcoin - MOVE THE KNOWLEDGE



  • Abstract 1 — Witcoin is a currency backed by knowledge.
    Alternately, knowledge is the currency that enables participation in
    the new global economy, the knowledge economy: this enables
    anyone and everyone to participate or contribute if they possess the
    requisite knowledge. A new overlaid decentralized platform of
    several actors that consult with each other across corporations and
    organizations is conceived for connecting and developing individuals,
    their ideas, and their projects so that the individuals collaborate with
    each other, getting and providing the best of their digital selves: their
    knowledge. The more knowledge that is put into action, the more
    wealth and the more witcoins represent and share this benefit among
    the actors. Some of them will do it professionally for themselves or
    on behalf of a company, others as a safe complement of their
    experience.
    We all need this knowledge anytime: individuals, as peer consumers,
    might get knowledge online that helps them connect to the proper
    resources, experts, and partners to address the needs of their projects.
    Doing so, individuals will perceive that they can conduct business in
    novel ways and become peer producers such that they might consult
    with anyone else and get (extra) income with their high-added-value
    knowledge services. As new liquidity soars, there will be no good
    project left behind, and the economy will thrive.
    Just as e-mail enabled bilateral messaging and bitcoin enabled
    bilateral financial transactions, witcoin enables multilateral
    knowledge empowerment, i.e., knowledge into action, of the highest
    added value.
    Witcoin is then the currency that will best match the needs of the
    knowledge economy, the next global industry in the revolution we
    are living, so that the money supply is linked to the added value of
    connected knowledge for our society, our needs, and our resources.
    Witcoin will enable a new business of unprecedented impact and
    value, as the new virtual currency will be available to fund (new)
    business in unprecedented ways.

    WHAT IS WITCOIN? 

     

     

     No doubt we are entering in the era of the Knowledge Economy along with so many technological and societal excitement. ‘No difference’ from past eras of human history, where people lived the industrial revolution, or the Internet revolution, when knowledge made a difference as it is making now at the dawn in the Knowledge Economy as an extension of the Information Society in the Information Age led by innovation.

    We think of knowledge as the currency that enables everybody to get the best of the new global economy. This new kind of currency enables anyone and everyone to participate or contribute with knowledge as an asset or capital.

    There is growing awareness that a sort of Knowledge-Based Capital (KBC) is driving economic growth and is gaining prevalence in today’s global marketplace. KBC includes a broad range of intangible assets, such as research, data, software, and design skills, which express human ingenuity. Unlike labour, natural resources, and physical capital, KBC is the only factor of production that will not suffer from scarcity. The message remains clear: to promote long-term growth and the jobs of tomorrow, public and private bodies, or self-organizing communities, must ensure a policy framework that helps businesses invest in KBC, companies to adopt KBC-friendly policies, and individuals to become accustomed to making a living with their knowledge.

    KBC requires multiparty collaboration to yield fruits. This is, involving other parties (AKA peers) when developing new products, services, and technologies. These peers are knowledge providers and also consumers.  Therefore, the Witcoin platform is a proposal of acknowledgement and reward of peers doing Knowledge Appraisal and Transfer. The reward is with Witcoins (WIT), a token based cryptocurrency backed by knowledge.

    A Wit is by definition “stuff that makes sense (to someone else).” Knowledge is considered to make sense when it proves useful to the peer community, and acknowledged by citing and referring it. These acts of acknowledgement will be confirmed by the Witcoin platform, backed by Blockchain technology, and therefore the author(s) will be rewarded in WIT currency.

    Up to 1 Million Witcoins will be distributed during pre-sale.
