Abstract

Knowledge-based societies require more than just the accumulation of existing knowledge. Knowledge must be continuously updated and new knowledge must be created. In this paper, we propose a learning economy model that incorporates market economy principles. The model contributes to the production, dissemination, and monetization of new knowledge based on a blockchain technology. This study aims to propose the learning economy model and an example of implementing this model.
