      Hello all,

      I'm working with the US Department of Ed and am doing research on blockchain efforts in education. One thing we found rather quickly when attempting to describe the various efforts is that a categorization of the types of efforts would add clarity when writing and speaking about them. We would like your assistance in developing this taxonomy. Hopefully, it serves broader needs.

      This doc contains what we've started:

      We are seeking your feedback on the terms and definitions. Also, please suggest any categories that are missing.

      Anyone with this link should be able to comment on this doc.  We can also use this thread for discussion.

      Thanks for your help!
