Bitcoin SV (BSV)-promoting Bitcoin Association has awarded a PhD student at Cambridge University with its Satoshi Nakamoto Scholarship, who designed to support the development of blockchain applications.
On January 9, it has been reported in a press release that Robin Kohze, a second-year PhD student of Human Genomics at Cambridge University, became the first to receive the scholarship following a series of blockchain competitions within the Bitcoin SV Hackathon last fall.
However, with his project dubbed, Hive, Kohze took second place. The scholarship is set to allow further development of Hive into a fully operational platform.
As the release described, Hive is geared toward changing the media landscape by implementing a molecular dynamic inspired incentive system, within which information can be added by users around the world.
By detailing the operational principles of the system, the release reads:
“Every content node containing information needs one or more linked nodes and every new link to a node has a dynamic cost to generate comprehensive knowledge networks. The resulting graph database is directly stored and maintained on the Bitcoin SV blockchain to grant a maximum of interoperability and transparency.”
Likewise, Kohze commented:
“With HIVE, I utilise the original Bitcoin protocol to implement a novel combination of game theoretical rule-sets to reconnect diverging perspectives in an increasingly polarised media landscape.”
As digital currencies and blockchain technology are becoming more integrated into everyday life, educational establishments are expanding blockchain-based training services.
Thus, the new school has five key courses in the pipeline: a blockchain essentials certification course, a blockchain developers’ course, an enterprise blockchain course, blockchain for lawyers and blockchain for impact.
