What Is Beat?
BEAT is a blockchain platform that safely keeps your health and fitness data and allows for the sharing of the data with sports sponsors, talent scouts, insurance firms, and others in a bid to unlock the potential in your health and fitness data. The data will be stored and encrypted in the BEAT blockchain.
How Beat Health & Sports Fitness Data Works
The user will have comprehensive access to this data, and he can decide if he wants to be a data provider by sharing of some of the data via a contractual agreement with other consumers. The consumer of the data will only get access as per the contractual agreement and use it as defined in the contract.
The concept will have trusted third parties (TTP) such as management software for the different providers, applications, fitness trackers, gyms clinics, and trainers among others that will be used to track, verify, and store the data in the blockchain.
The BEAT blockchain connects three important group of stakeholders: the data providers, data consumers, and trusted third parties.
Data providers are the generators of health and activity data. The providers can be private persons such as patients or organizations such as gyms and clinics. The BEAT will allow the providers to store their data in the Blockchain and each of the providers will have a wallet to encrypt and access this data.
Data consumers are private, legal, or political entities that offer to use cases for accessing certain health and activity data. Consumers of data can be employers, insurance firms, clinics, sports facilities, and private persons who want to motivate the providers of the data.
A trusted third party is a legal entity that provides the infrastructure to capture and verify the activity and health data in a reliable manner. The third party should also record data and provide the data provider with an electronic wallet that has different functionalities. The BEAT platform will use MySports to come up with the NoExcuse app that will be used for this purpose.
