Psychsoftpc Announces Blockchain for Cooperation for Medical Research

Psychsoftpc Announces Blockchain for Cooperation for Medical Research

A blockchain system to give medical researchers a platform for secure cooperation on research projects

  • One problem with healthcare and medical research today is the isolation of researchers in seeking cures for major and orphan diseases. While there are many people world wide researching cures, there is no secure way for them to cooperate over distances. Psychsoftpc is developing a Blockchain solution which will allow people world wide to work on finding a cure together and thus speed up the process of solving these problems. Each disease can have its own blockchain with only authorized members having access to research and progress. Since it is blockchain based, research can not be altered, deleted or edited making it a secure environment for finding cures. We will also offer researchers time on a Tesla Cluster Supercomputer for medical research purposes. Set to eventually be one of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world it will provide medical researchers working alone or with little funding access to computer resources that are only now available to well funded labs. This is important because we need to bring medical research into the 21st century and allow for secure research cooperation across borders

  • Blockchain is a technological advance with far reaching implications that will transform financial services, health care, logistics, retail, manufacturing and many other industries. A blockchain is a distributed database, so the devices storing the database are not all connected to one local machine but spread out over multiple machines with each machine maintaining its own copy. Blockchain software maintains a growing list of ordered records or blocks, hence the name. Each block has a timestamp and a link to a previous block. Cryptography ensures that users can only edit the parts of the blockchain that they are allowed to by possessing the private keys necessary to write to the file. It also ensures that every copy of the distributed blockchain is up to date.

  • The folks at Psychsoftpc believe that blockchain is good for more than cryptocurrency and that the focus on cryptocurrency takes away from the benefits that blockchain can provide. Psychsoftpc's blockchain project will provide a means for researchers throughout the globe to work on finding cures for diseases. So it is a blockchain project that follows Thoreau "Be not simply good, be good for something." This will fundamentally change the way people perform medical research and lead to cures for not only major diseases like cancer and heart disease but facilitate finding cures for orphan diseases that currently do not receive enough attention.

  • This project is being crowdfunded on Indiegogo. Funders of $25 will receive an acknowledgement certificate suitable for framing. Funders of $50 will receive the certificate and periodic progress reports of conducted research. Funders of $1500 will receive time on our Tesla Cluster Supercomputer.
