VitaDAO: Funding Longevity Research through Decentralized Science
VitaDAO is a community-owned collective dedicated to funding and advancing longevity science. Thus far VitaDAO has funded more than 15 projects with a total amount of $4M.
VitaDAO is part of the Decentralized Science movement, a movement which utilizes the Blockchain to democratize and improve processes that currently slow down the scientific process. The goal of Decentralized science is shifting the power away from centralized entities such as big publishers and omnipotent funding agencies towards the community of scientists and rewarding them fairly in a transparent manner, while accelerating progress in the sciences.
This presentation will cover what Decentralized Science is and how it currently is being used to fund Longevity Research.
