Orvium - Open and Transparent Science Powered By Blockchain!
Is it scary to imagine what would happen to us if people weren't engaged in science? Sometimes I ask myself, how would we live? Under what conditions? Would we be happy? In fact, the impact of science on our lives with you is simply huge. Every discovery, every research pushes humanity forward to new discoveries and technologies. This improves not only the overall quality of life, but also its duration.
However, the world of scientific activity is not as perfect as it may seem. There are many factors that prevent the full and unhindered development of all research activities. Let's look at some of them.
In recent years, research activities are dissatisfied with the situation, namely the conditions for the spread of scientific discoveries. And this is due to the fact that the five largest publishers, which are engaged in the publication of 70% of scientific articles take a very large percentage. It was found that the marginality of these publishers is several times higher than the income of such companies as Apple, Google and Amazon. Impressive, isn't it?
As for private publishers, and there is not so smooth. Such scientific publishing houses simply shifted the obligation to pay to the research community. This in turn leads to high costs for the publication of research works, as well as their non-transparent publication. Due to what the true authors do not receive properly their recognition and put for research rewards. In simple words, one problem is superimposed on another and forms a snowball that is about to absorb all research activities.
It is good that there are people who are not indifferent to this problem and they are striving to change the course of events by developing a unique platform for all researchers of science.
A team of specialists was developed on the basis of the Blockchain platform called Orvium. Orvium is a platform for publishing research works. Thanks to the decentralized system and smart contracts, the platform is able to provide all users with the following conditions:
- each article published in Orvium will be assigned to the author, thereby confirming his copyright and protecting against fraud and re-publication by another user of his work;
- due to the fact that the author after the publication retains all rights to their work, Orvium allows him to get personally, the potential rewards and benefits;
- this platform allows to minimize all expenses of authors, thus to exclude any monopolistic and oligarchic structure, allowing to create own research journal;
- a transparent framework will allow all researchers to easily and quickly view published works, recognizing their authenticity and much more.
It is important to note that the open source code of Orvium guarantees full transparency, as well as excellent competitiveness to international research institutions. Forming a new business model for all scientific researchers around the world. Blurring international boundaries and instantly demonstrating scientific discoveries.
For high-quality and efficient operation of the platform, the founders of the project developed their own orvium token (ORV) on the basis of Ethereum. With the help of which the user can easily pay a different collegial fee, pay the license confirming the copyright and so on. In total, it is planned to issue about 379,000,000 ORV tokens. The initial cost of one token is$0.10. Developers during the ICO period intend to collect Hard Cap in the amount of 20 million dollars. That I think is not bad.
It should be noted that this project is simply vital for the entire sphere of research. After all, our future depends on its quality and effective development. Therefore, do not pass by, study the social resources of the project, get acquainted in more detail and their concept and take an active part in the development of this resource.
