DeSci Discussion Topic

This month’s open conversation thread is all about scientific identity:

How do we transcend legacy academic credentials in Web3?

In other words, how do we move beyond academic credentials issued by legacy institutions, such as the PhD, to address problems of inequity, elitism, unrecognized contributions, misaligned incentives, and distorted perceptions of quality or expertise?

The OpSci community has begun discussing the introduction of an Open Science DID standard that aggregates academic activity from Web 2.0 and mints verifiable proof of contribution as an interactive NFT profile page.

We’re still early in the ideation phase but the idea is to explore this as part of the ethDenver hack-a-thon. :sparkles:Are you interesting in collaborating or exploring this idea further? Get in contact to discuss a travel grant for ethDenver!
