I like the Twitter integration.

I also have been playing with it to host the audio for podcasting. IMHO, it works really nicely. Host it there...upload to other spaces to share out as well.

I also like it because it'll plug in to Instagram. When I take and share pics there...it'll automatically save a copy on my Known installation. :)

The Possibilities of Badges and Blockchain, by @dajbelshaw #dml #badgechain 
In March 2015, I wrote “Peering Deep into the Future of Educational Credentialing” for DML Central. In it, I explored the potential for the blockchain technology (best known for underpinning Bitcoin) to add an extra layer of trust and verification to Open Badges. Now, a year later, we’re a lot closer to that reality than I originally envisioned. The diffusion of innovation has moved so quickly that even government ministers are excited about the ...
