What is Dentacoin?
The Blockchain Solution for the Global Dental Industry
Sick Care is the crisis of the 21st century.
A vast community of progressive dentists is shifting the paradigm towards a Health system that Cares.
Secure Blockchain infrastructure, patient-centered care and intelligent prevention used jointly to improve long-term health, reduce costs and pain and ensure mutual benefits.
Through a common, industry-specific cryptocurrency Dentacoin (DCN) and several Blockchain-based software tools, all market participants are securely interconnected, empowered to efficiently exchange information and values.
DENTACOIN (DCN) CURRENCY
“The Bitcoin of Dentistry”
Dentacoin (DCN) is an Ethereum-based utility token which can be easily exchanged to other crypto and fiat (USD, EUR, GBP, etc.) currencies and is already being accepted as a means of payment by dental clinics, laboratories, shops in 18 countries. Every new participant in the Dentacoin community leads to increase of DCN value (“network effect”) – i.e. the more people use DCN, the higher its value grows.
Dentacoin is the one and only cryptocurrency in the world that connects all participants in the global dental industry. In contrast to the inflation-prone world currencies, it holds the potential to make people richer rather than poorer. In its essence, Dеntacoin has a strong social aspect – it empowers people to receive affordable and sustainable dental care and to earn additional income for their active usage of Dentacoin tools.
Bringing Patients Back Into Focus
Communication and attention are the key components on which every relationship builds. The Dentacoin Foundation has already developed four Blockchain-based software applications intended to facilitate and leverage the interaction between patients and dentists.
An online market research platform surveying users (patients) on various dental health topics and providing key results publicly.
- Trusted Reviews
The first platform for detailed, verified and incentivized dental treatment reviews written by patients with verified identities.
- Dentacare Mobile App
A mobile app which teaches kids and adults to maintain good oral hygiene through a 3-month, incentivized challenge.
- Dentacoin Wallet dApp
Allows users to easily and securely store, send, receive DCN tokens, as well as buy DCN against fiat and crypto currencies.
Preaching & Practicing Preventive Dental Care
Dentacoin Assurance is a revolutionary dental, insurance-like program that compensates dentists for prevention and not only for treatment. By paying an affordable monthly premium in DCN to their dentists, patients are entitled to a lifelong, prevention-focused dental care. This Blockchain-based model brings the financial interests of patients and dentists into complete alignment without any intermediaries and establishes strong and lasting bonds. ETA: Testnet Dec 2018
DENTAL HEALTH DATABASE
Making Patients Owners of Their Dental Health Records
Another central project to be developed by the Dentacoin Foundation is a decentralized dental health database which stores patient’s data in a safe and reliable way. It is fully managed by patients – only they decide what to store and who can access it. This peerless security degree and control over one’s own data is ensured by the Blockchain. For dentists, this means easier and more precise prophylaxis plans and highly individualized treatment based on a more holistic view of the patient’s health. ETA: 2019
