What Is Frankl?
Frankl is a new blockchain company which was created to make open science easier to do and more rewarding than it currently is. The company will use this new technology to integrate the way that the scientific workflow works and will use its own tokens for the incentivization for data sharing purposes.
How Frankl Open Science Blockchain Data Sharing Works
The platform created by this company will be based on three important aspects: the app platform, blockchain integration and tokenized economy. All of the actions made by the company will be focused on the platform developed by the team and it will use a blockchain structure and tokenized payments.
The platform will be focused on giving people access to what is known as “open science” a type of science that is open to all types of people. As more and more publishers are charging high fees for people who want access to content, Frankl’s idea is to be able to give this scientific content to people without charging abusive fees.
To be able to do it, the company will pay the scientists using its own tokens and enable people to have access to this content without having many problems. The blockchain technology can secure the articles forever and is great for sharing any type of content.
Initially, the company will focus on cognitive assessment. The company will open space for people to use the platform for research and to create scientific content about this type of issue. In the future, the company is planning to expand its focus and be more wide. More specifically, the company is already creating solutions for research that involved autism, chosen by the company as the first issue that it would focus on.
Who Is Behind Frankl?
The team that developed this project is composed primarily of researchers and developers who are enthusiasts of the idea of a open science. The main ones are Jon Brock, Elise Roberts, Kyle Hengst, Tasha Nair, Peter Godbolt, Kat Clark, Sammy Broese and Matthew Szwec. The main advisors are Greg Savage, Craig Smith, Sue Fletcher-Watson and Michael Hoegen.
