Blockchain and cryptocurrency-based Health and Wellness Community to Launch
Mosio, Inc., a company providing two-way mobile messaging solutions for healthcare and clinical research, has announced the launch of Clinicoin, a ‘superapp’ platform for healthcare. Clinicoin is a blockchain platform focused on building a global health and wellness community. The platform gives users the necessary mobile tools to help them manage their lives and lead healthy lifestyles, and incentivizes these behaviours to make exercise and mindfulness activities engaging.
Clinicoin rewards users with its in-app cryptocurrency, CLIN tokens, for engaging in healthy activities via an open source platform. Leveraged by a blockchain-based ecosystem, the platform is designed to connect people, developers and providers, worldwide, improving global health, wellness and research.
Clinicoin offers its users a variety of features including a rewards engine, which enables the distribution of Clinicoin (CLIN) tokens among community members. They can be used for completing healthy tasks, incentivizing adherence or participating in medical research. The platform uses Proof of Engagement (PoE): the confirmation of healthy activities connected to the Clinicoin platform by two different types of Validators – health app developers and activity leaders. Similar to mining other cryptocurrencies, users earn CLIN tokens for participating in healthy activities and Validators earn tokens for confirming those behaviours.
The platform also has a health and wellness marketplace, where Clinicoin members spend their CLIN tokens for access to tools, content, products and services. The marketplace will be powered by Mosio and soon move to a decentralized model.
The two other Clinicoin community member types are Developers (programmers, software engineers) and Providers (healthcare organizations, researchers, practitioners). Developers can create, deploy and monetize their software applications connected to the Clinicoin platform. Providers benefit from an easy and secure way to interact with users and gather data through surveys. Leveraging ten years as a mobile messaging solutions provider, Mosio uses its platform to solve patient engagement problems for healthcare organizations, clinical researchers and software companies.
Noel Chandler, co-founder and CEO of Mosio, creator of Clinicoin, commented: “Clinicoin is the digital intersection between wellness, health and research. Chronic diseases cause nearly three quarters of the world’s deaths each year, many of them preventable by improving healthy choices and behaviours. Clinicoin helps keep people engaged in their health and wellness, while providing them with a simple and secure way to communicate with providers, researchers and digital tools to keep them healthy.”
Founder and COO of CareWire, a mobile patient engagement company that serves hospital and health systems, David Nichols: “Clinicoin is an example of the continuous innovation we’ve seen with Mosio throughout our long relationship with them. We see great potential for this to enhance secure patient-to-provider communication and drive dramatic increases in engagement, and look forward to exploring more deeply how it may help us serve our client needs.”
The Clinicoin token sale will open at 9am PST on the 21st of February, 2018 and closea at 6pm PDT on the 20th of March, 2018. Of the 3 billion CLIN tokens minted, 600 million will be reserved in the community rewards pool, rewarding users and validators for taking part in and confirming healthy activities. Everyone contributing in the token discount sale will have access to all early buying bonus discounts, with no pre-sales, whitelists or minimums. Once the hard cap is met, an additional 200 million CLIN tokens will be unlocked during the sale, with proceeds donated to global children’s health charities.
