They have potential to lower costs and speed processes. This research helps leaders to determine which smart contract platform is right for their blockchain use case. It focuses on the top public platforms—Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Tezos, Hedera, Algorand, Solana, and Avalanche—and it presents seven criteria for evaluation: security, performance and scalability, development costs, execution costs, environmental impact, the contract language’s expressivity, and research and development funding....

Reinventing Healthcare on the Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic, Video
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/reinventing-healthcare-on-the-blockchain/
Jan 12, 2018 - The healthcare systems of many countries work for neither the medical professionals nor the patients they serve. It is the only industry where innovation drives costs up. The problem ultimately resides in industrial-age thinking about healthcare delivery, where intermediaries hoard data, assume patient ignorance, and exclude anyone without insurance. This project flips the model: patients co-create and own their data, have full access to it, and can monetize it on the blockchain.
