KRATE Distributed Information Systems, Inc. and Atheneum have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) this past week.
The memorandum details Atheneum’s intention to use KRATE as its content delivery network (CDN) and as a zero-knowledge arbiter and witness to assist with administrative tasks.
The KRATE platform will handle data storage, retrieval and repair for all content on Atheneum, the world’s first Decentralized Autonomous Learning Organization (DALO). KRATE will help store education materials in a secure manner, enforce access controls, and co-sign educational course certifications.
KRATE will enable Atheneum to hyper-locally serve content from a globally distributed node network. This distribution web, combined with KRATE’s standard security features such as zero-knowledge file handling, will give Atheneum the ability to deliver rich content faster and more securely than through traditional delivery networks.
Atheneum is creating a “dynamic and decentralized educational ecosystem, a hub for students, individual teachers, tutors, employees and corporate trainers, and institutions.” Their mission is to “fundamentally improve education by providing a free market ecosystem where incentives are maximized for both instructors and students alike.”
With this MOU, KRATE is now servicing the education sector as well as health.
