Dentacoin launches pilot project for dental industry


The project was developed as the first tamper-resistant, transparent and manipulation-proof platform.

Dentacoin (DCN) is said to be the first ever, Ethereum-based token customized for the global dental industry. It is a digital currency that is catered to dentistry. Dentacoin, a Netherlands-based, blockchain-oriented health care platform, is reportedly on its way to improve dental care across the world, making it incredibly affordable by leveraging upon blockchain advantages.

The pilot Dentacoin project (Trusted Review Platform) was developed as the first tamper-resistant, transparent and manipulation-proof platform. The Dentacoin ERC20 token is being used by thousands of users worldwide, after the end of a successful, hard-capped presale of Dentacoin tokens on July 31, 2017.

Dentacoin’s pilot project is said to be the first of its kind, blockchain-based place for trusted dental treatment reviews. By developing and executing this platform, Dentacoin reportedly enables patients to raise their concerns. At the same time, dentists also get an access to updated, valuable market research data as well as qualified patient feedback, which is the most important way to help improve the service quality and grow loyal patient base. Dentacoin, based on self-implementing Smart Contract, ensures optimal trust, autonomy, safety and speed without any manipulation.

The Dentacoin Review Platform intends to be the first ever, most functional review as well as market research mechanism because of incentive-based, fully transparent and censorship resistance temperament of blockchain-based solutions. It is reportedly the only platform that is also supported by many other value-adding solutions created for the same purpose i.e. to boost dental care service quality, dental insurance model and health care database management.

Lifetime, fully covered dental health care will be accessible to patients at the lowest monthly prices, paid in Dentacoin tokens. A self-implementing smart contract guarantees no manipulations, low fees and shared responsibility. The usual profit generated by insurance companies is shared between dentists and patients.

Though blockchain-based tools, including a trusted review platform, a web app for crowd knowledge, and an aftercare mobile app, dentists and patients are rewarded with Dentacoin against their contribution to DentaCoin Foundation’s mission. Dentacoin serves as a platform to record patients’ feedback as well as help them improve their dental care habits. Moreover, the DCN tool is designed to help dentists improve the service quality based on feedback and develop a loyal patient community.

  • Cheaper dental equipment and materials via Dentacoin trading platform

  • A growing patient community

Dentists can exchange DCN tokens with patients for their reviews, while patients can utilize DCN tokens on various dental services or reserve tokens as an investment tool. In the future, the company plans to launch a blockchain-based insurance platform and health care database.
